The Great American Lobster Fest pairs an amazing selection of fresh seafood and cold beer for purchase with a stellar lineup of live music, including a swingin’ live set by headliners Cherry Poppin’ Daddies (“Zoot Suit Riot”) on Saturday night plus nearly two dozen other local bands and tribute acts. Lobster lovers will be in crustacean heaven with the endless array of lobster rolls, lobster tacos, lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, fried lobster on a stick and steamed lobster feasts — all made fresh from lobster that’s flown in fresh from the cold waters of the East Coast. There’s also plenty of non-seafood items, sweets and vegetarian entrees to enjoy. So bring the whole family, a date or just a bib and a ginormous appetite to this Labor Day Weekend seafood celebration at the Navy Pier East End Plaza.
