Illinois: “11th annual Eli’s Cheesecake Festival.” Cheesecake bingo? Cheesecake hula hoop
contests? Better yet, culinary demonstrations and – take a guess – cheesecake-eating contests. It all takes place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and next Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Eli’s Cheesecake Co., 6701 W. Forest
Preserve Drive, Chicago. The fun is free and open to the public. A slice of cheesecake is free with a non-perishable food donation. See www.elicheesecake.com/festival
