Do you work in the West Loop and get jealous thinking of your friends in Wicker Park whiling away the afternoon at Big Star, downing delicious and inexpensive tacos? If yes, you may want to mark down some dates on a calendar because Big Star is set to pop up at 2 N. Riverside Plaza on the plaza overlooking the Chicago River and the Lyric Opera on multiple dates over the coming months.
For the first date on June 27, the team will sell about 900 tacos de panza, tacos de pescado and tacos de papas con rajas at $3 a piece. Future dates for the pop up, which Big Star estimates will feed about 300 people, will take place on July 19, August 23 and Sept. 13. If doughnuts are more your thing, Do-Rite Donuts has a pop-up at the same location every Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30, or until supplies last.
