“Chicago’s HogFight” began in 2013 at tavern and eatery Mahoney’s Pub & Grille and continues annually outdoors on Racine, just adjacent to the pub. The concept is simple: Several (up to a dozen at a time so far) of Chicago’s best chefs throw down on a whole hog, one of them will be crowned “HogFather” for a year and be awarded $1,000 in prize money.
In addition to unlimited pork, typical side dishes will also be available in limited quantities, and the entire Mahoney’s menu will be available inside the adjacent restaurant.
Live entertainment and games will also be present, making for a very fun-in-the-sun day!
