CHICAGO (CBS) – This weekend is the biggest of Chicago’s festival season.

A busy and fun weekend for Chicago with, it would seem, something for everyone.

Then, there is the Taste of Randolph Street, which brings together some of the top restaurants in the West Loop. It stretches over six blocks along Randolph St.
