Chicago Bears punter Adam Podlesh will be at the Great Jewish Family Festival tomorrow at the West parking lot of Westfield Old Orchard Center, 4999 Old Orchard Center in Skokie, Illinois. Podlesh will be available for a meet and greet and he'll be signing autographs for Bears fans. The festivities will kickoff at 4pm and the celebration will continue through 9 that evening. And have I mentioned the All You Can Eat BBQ?
Wristbands can be purchased on site for $18 or in advance for $12. The wristband will get you into all the age appropriate amusement zones at the festival, including the toddler zone (ages 2-4), the kids zone (ages 5-9), the tween zone (ages 10-13), the teen zone (ages 14-18), as well as a special section zoned off for adults. The wristband will grant you access to laser tag, live music, a rock climbing wall, video games, the traditional Lag B'Omer bon fire, and it'll get you dinner. Dinner that includes hot dogs, burgers, corn, pickles, watermelon, water, soft drinks and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the all you can eat BBQ.
Adam Podlesh is fired up about the event, here's his tweet he sent out yesterday.

Just like last year, Windy City Gridiron would like to thank Rabbi Meir Hecht, the Director of the Jewish Learning Institute of Metropolitan Chicago, for keep us informed about this spectacular family fun event.
