For three years, Chicago’s Grant Park has been the exclusive home of the annual music phenomenon, Lollapalooza. For those same three years, Anheuser-Busch has been the festival’s exclusive beer vendor. The three-day event, held in August, welcomed 150,000 music fans in Summer 2007 who enjoyed 130 bands on eight different stages, including Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Pearl Jam, Patti Smith, Amy Winehouse, and Modest Mouse.
Lollapalooza was organized by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell and is a music-lover’s bonanza that touches on a remarkable range of musical styles. The diverse lineup has included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Ramones, Waylon Jennings, Kanye West, and Billy Idol, to name a few. The event occurred annually from 1991 to 1997. It was revived in 2003 and cancelled in 2004. A touring Lollapalooza festival was planned that year but cancelled due to low ticket sales.
In 2005, the event found a permanent home at Grant Park in Chicago. Lollapalooza is more than just a concert. It is a musical, cultural and community experience that melds well with its location — a jewel that the citizens of Chicago hold dear. The event seems to have settled comfortably into its new home. “Grant Park is truly one of the signature parks in America,” said event producer Charles Attal. “I think people will be amazed when they see how we transform it into a musical playground.” The Parkways Foundation and the City of Chicago have provided the use of the entire park for the event, which stretches from Lower Hutchinson north to Monroe Drive. The spacious park provides the festival with room to expand to numerous stages without anticipating noise bleed issues.
To accommodate the oversized urban venue, CITY Beverage-Chicago (CBC), Anheuser-Busch’s distributor for the region, supplied a 90-person team to man multiple beer stations. “The significant advance preparation by the Sales and Operations Departments was evident throughout the smooth execution of this event,” noted CBC General Manager Mike Flynn. “We applaud all the members of our team, as well as the support from Anheuser-Busch, for their dedication and constant on-site coordination. Their work added to the festival’s enjoyment for everyone attending. It was truly a team effort that resulted in record beer sales.”
Over the course of the weekend-long event, CBC sold over 580,000 ice cold servings of Budweiser, Bud Light and the lighter-tasting, lower calorie Bud Select. To accomplish this feat, the team utilized nine refrigerated trailers, six “way-matics” or mobile draft distribution centers, and 150 cold plates. “Having the correct resources can make all the difference in the success of an event, particularly an event the size of Lollapalooza,” explained Flynn.
In addition to the adult-size fun on eight stages, Lollapalooza also features the KIDZ Stage, where the young and young-at-heart rocked out to acts such as Rock for Kids Youth Jam Band, The Sippy Cups, Paul Green’s School of Rock Allstars, and Patti Smith in 2007. Kids also participate in music and dance workshops, body painting, and a mobile recording studio where they can record their own song on CD. Children aged 10 and under are admitted free if accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.
Beneficiary of Lollapalooza, the Parkways Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to enhancing Chicago’s public spaces. The Chicago parks system is the most extensive in the country, comprising a collection of more than 550 parks, 250 field houses, golf courses, museums, and miles of shoreline. Proceeds from Lollapalooza benefit the Parkways Foundation.

Follow The Right Diet Plan For Your Body
Anyone can lose weight if they are committed to doing so, but it's made so much easier if you are aware of effective strategies on losing weight safely and for the long-term. There are many ways to lose weight, but it's important to do so in a way that is easy for you to stick with. Here are some canny tips that we are sure will be invaluable to you.
Drinking water is essential to losing weight and becoming healthy, but it's hard to drink enough each day. Carry a water bottle, either disposable or refillable, with you every where you go and you can take a sip of water whenever you feel thirsty or feel the first pangs of hunger.
You can consume less calories, and lose more weight, if you take the time to cut up your food. Portion control is difficult for most people, so take a food that contains a large amount of calories (like chocolate) and cut it into smaller portions. You can still eat what you like, but by only consuming a small amount of the food, you will not gain as much weight.
If you're having trouble losing weight, try using some fitness DVDs to give you a structured weight loss routine. Jillian Michaels has some great, proven DVDs that with a little work each day, can have you achieving your dream body in only a few weeks. If you can't afford a fitness DVD try following some fitness videos on YouTube.
Make sure you are getting some exercise while you are on your diet plan. Exercise in any form is great for helping you to lose those excess pounds. You don't have to have a gym membership to workout either. You can run, do sit ups and push ups and that will help you in your weight loss efforts. Walking is also another great way to help you lose weight. Try and stay active, get your body in motion to lose the weight.
Work out for weight loss by not working out. A lot of people freeze and give up when they realize that for true sustained weight loss you need to start exercising. Trick your brain into going along with your exercise by not calling it that. Stay away from the gym and get your "work out" in by washing your car, riding a bike, going on a hike, or any of a million other activities that are exercise without being "exercise".
Stay away from foods that you have trouble stopping at one serving. If you cannot stop eating chips then you should not buy a bag and try to eat one serving. Most likely you will give into temptation. Buy something else that is crunchy but is lower in fat and calories.
Dining out presents a challenge for people trying to lose weight. Even with more healthy options available, restaurant portion sizes are still far too large. One incredibly simple way to control what you're eating is to order your dinner, and ask the server to box half of it up when they bring it to the table. You'll be eating half as much food right off the bat, and can bring home the rest for another meal.
Red pepper flakes are wonderful to use when trying to lose weight. If you eat them early on in the day, it will actually help you to lower the amount of food you eat. You can put some on eggs for breakfast, or use them anyway you would like to.
If you are a potato chip lover like so many of us are, these can really hurt your diet. Try baking some apples instead. The baked apples will give you that crunch that a potato chip will, but offer you the nutrition of eating an apple. Finding healthy alternatives to your favorite foods will boost your weight loss.
There is some very useful advice there, and some of it may even be new to you. What's important however, is to give it time. None of these tips will give you quick results, nor should you want them to. Putting the weight on took a long time, and losing it over a long period is a safer, and more realistic way to go about it. When you don't see results it can be difficult to keep going on the weight loss journey, but if you have committed yourself to accomplishing your weight loss goal, you are unstoppable.
