What a joke! We got there at 3:45 walked into the fenced off area called "The Taste of Midlothian" Sullivan's taste of beer for $3 a cup, guy selling boxes of tea, Walgreens (OF) table closing up, Kenootz slices (at least it was food), Hardees hand outs of menu, 2 Sisters (2flavors I guess its considered food), SteerHogs 3 items (food) and a "band" with the singer who sounded terrible! REALLY this was it?!! So we walked across the street ate at El Loco Burrito then walked back across the street and went to 2 Sisters. As to why Hog Wild, Bartolini's, and Durbin's were not there? Obvious!! Sullivan's, Kenootz, Steer Hogs are "competitors" of the 3 top places in Midlo!! Hog Wild, Bartolinis, Durbins are too good to even come close to being compared to these others and smart not to want to be in the same parking lot with them. 1st Annual? HA!! OMG this was not only an embarrassment it was terrible, please don't do this again.

1st Annual means it was the first time they tried it. Sorry if it wasn't up to your expectations. Durbins, Bartolinis and Hog Wild didn't even respond to a request to join in. Why? They think they are just too big to do something like that but you can believe that when Barolinis want to promote their Meatball eating contest, they will be all gung ho midlo. Hog Wild takes advantage of their name and serves cold food anyway.I know for some residents of Midlothian the Sun rises and sets on the Bartolini Brothers and Hog Wild but they aren't the best.

Is this so called "EVENT" sanction by the Village of Midlothian? If so why would they not have it on the land that they just bought on Cicero? Why is Bartolines Durbins and Hog wild not there, it's not because they are "TO BIG" for it, it's because they don't want to deal with the people trying to Promote them selfs using the Village of Midlothian name. It's Sullivans ownership running this thing and wanted to make a name for them selfs on the back of the Village. If you didn't know who this band is that is playing tonite, it's Danny's who is a "manager" at Sullivans, so we have Sullivans running this, a Manager's from sullivans band playing in it and you want to know why certian resturants are not participating!!! The little things you find out when you read TOPIC.

Her agenda is to run a village, not run it into the ground like the previous administration. She isn't firing anyone right now. She has cut some hours. It's called budget cuts. Would you rather she just keep putting it all on the backs of the taxpayer? That's what Terry did while he coddled his favorite few. That's exactly why he is not mayor now!

I got there about 6:15 and was told that there was a $5.00 cover to walk in. We did not stick around.

Our new Mayor didn't show up at the first annual taste of Midlothian and you bash Terry? Terry has moved on with his life and every time I read this forum people here are still bashing him. Maybe you should follow his lead.

That's ridiculous charging to walk in, but maybe that was because they had to recoup the cost for the band? Sorry. I was not aware there was going to be one.

I do know it was a little messy because it was the first one, and they needed board approval to do it and didn't ask far enough in advance. I think some businesses that didn't participate probably wanted to see how the first one panned out before they committed, plus the fact that there was very little notice to prepare.

I ended up being too sick to go, but I heard from several people that when it first started not much was setup/running yet so they had to come back.

I think once they get the kinks out this could become a nice annual event. Give them a break though. It was their first attempt.

We stopped in after going to the movies. Even at 9:30, they wanted a $ 5 cover. We said thanks but no thanks. We did stop in at CD Vodka, enjoyed a flight. They have expanded their storefront to include the adjoining corner lot, so congratulations to them.

No I think I will stick around and keep telling it like it is. Thanks for the suggestion though. Someone said the mayor was there early and nothing was set up when it was supposed to be. She did not go back. Why would she? It wasn't a village event. It was a bar event. They didn't invite all the businesses in town either. She was better off staying completely clear of that fiasco!
