Cooking Channel's Summer Eats Rolls Into the Windy City

Cooking Channel's Summer Eats Pop Up rolled into Chicago this past weekend. We set up shop on Oak Street Beach, a beautiful beach located on the lake front with the Chicago skyline rising up in the background. Though we were greeted by stormy weather, the sky cleared up just in time for the event, and Chicagoans were able to sit back and enjoy good food and drinks, meet two of the newest Cooking Channel hosts and listen to live music while watching the sunset over Lake Michigan.

Check out more photos from the event after the jump.
