• Aug. 23, 5 p.m. — NEWaukee 7 Bridges BBQ
Team Maxie’s will be down at Grant Park for a sublime evening on Aug. 23, when NEWaukee presents a progressive dinner and music event on the Seven Bridges trail. Wander through the forest, sip and sample local food and beverages, and make your way to the beach to enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Michigan on a warm summer evening.
Tickets are $35 each and include six food and beer samples (Click here). A cash bar will be available on the beach at the end of the trail. If you want to experience the night hike and not sample food or beer, there is no charge to attend.
