Taste lost $1.3 million last year but the politically connected made MILLIONS off it... They skimmed the PROFITS

They were selling $1.00 worth of food for $10 Bucks but lost money... Not to mention charging a fee on every sheet of food tickets you bought....
Plus it was the first year they sold concert tickets too....
GIVE ME A FRICKEN BREAK! FBI are you out there?

Taste of Chicago lost $1.3 million last year, leaving it deeper in the red after Mayor Rahm Emanuel raised the expectation that the venerable summer ode to overindulgence would begin to break even or turn a profit.
The losses came despite Emanuel's moves to raise more money at Taste 2012 by charging attendees at the nightly concerts at the Petrillo Music Shell $25 for reserved seats and adding $40 daily gourmet meals prepared by local chefs alongside the traditional ribs-and-ice cream fare that has made the festival synonymous with Chicago summer for decades. The mayor also cut Taste from 10 days to five and moved it away from July 4.
In 2011, Taste lost about $1 million, and afterward Emanuel said he wanted to plot a course toward profitability. "The problem, it was a cost both for the restaurants that held it — revenue wasn't what it was before — and it's a cost for the city," Emanuel said in July 2011. "That can't continue as constructed, but we all have an interest in continuing the Taste of Chicago."

Just end it. Nothing but crap there anyway. Who wants to go see a bunch of wildebeests with their pants around their ankles anyway.

It's a " taste " of Chicago!

OVER PRICED! OVER TAXED! OVER REGULATED! CORRUPT! SATURATED SANCTUARY CITY! Section 8 squared!POT HOLES ! DEAD AIRPORTS AND A JOO DEALING THE CARDS; YOURS FACE UP HIS FACE DOWN?


Why wouldn't everyone want to move here? Why would anyone want to leave here?

Only Honolulu has a higher cost of living and only LA County has a tie with NYC FOR THE MOST CRIME PER CAPITA?

But we got the murder capital nailed! Even higher than a active war zone !! How's that for mismanagement?

Next year like last year Chicago will steal from every working person and after they split their cuts with the UNIONS and community organizers we will have the best COURTS AND POLITICIANS MONEY CAN BY BY BY!

CHICAGO! THE CITY OF BIG HOLDERS!


How gnikcuf stupid can that 9.5 Joo boy be?
This town will be a ghost town movie set!
Detroit will look like the City of the future!

Yes sir! With out Chicago river open sewer system and spectacularly beautiful views of the only lake in the USA with fish you can't eat and water you can't drink or swim in!

Even our German Submarine sank?

What will they name it? Moon base Rahmit ?

McCarthy is leaving this week. He's going to use family health issues. Who's next to replace him?

I hope he realizes that, a daughter whoring or St Patty's day drinking binge are not grounds for use of family leave act.

The reasons taste is going in the tank are 1.niggers running wild and robbing,raping,beating,killing each other but mostly whites and cops/city doing nothing 2.said niggers having no $$$$$ to get in,someone feels sorry for them giving them free food vouchers further pissing off whites and keeping them away 3.corrupt officals who shove it up your ass to get your $$$$$

I have not been in since my little one was stroller bound. Having her walking amongst thugs and thier offspring is of no interest to me. There is nothing special about fighting the underclass for a sopt in line, a spot to eat and 100 degree weather to sample resataurants I coukd just eat at anyway.
Used to be you could ho at opening and be out by 11 to aviod the swearing hold up your pants and your dick in the other crowd.

Just Boycott the Taste into extinction. Don't give your money to commies & nigroz. Take your family, buddies, etc somewhere nice and safe, far from Shitcago.

Back in the day I remember working the first two Chicago Fest under Mayor Jane Byrne. Navy Pier was all fenced in to keep out the mongrels and you had to pay a nominal fee to get in. The food was very very good and was priced very low. The entertainment was the very best. Plenty of cops roaming the park and it was SAFE. God knows what this thing morphed into once Mayor Byrne left office.

This is really off topic, but needs airing.

Looks like nigger obamba was on the down low during his tenure at Harvard. Issues of sexual harassment made by males (yes males, not females) against the punk-assed down-low nigger while at Harvard have surfaced.

First nigger president. First down-low president. Damn, that gift just keeps on giving like either AIDS or syphilis.

This disgusts me to no end. I am ashamed to have this thing squatting the the White House.

Washington Park, then at least the working girls will profit. Have that Bud Bilikin Parade be part if it. Or Jackson Park and they can use the Llardo Taft Fountain of Time as a urinal because he wasnt black
