The Heart of Italy's Annual Festa Pasta Vino starts Thursday. This massive scrum in "little" Little Italy (Oakley and Cermak), runs through Sunday and features eats from La Fontanella, Bacchanalia, Haro, and Ignotz’s, and a host of Italian American crooners beginning with Dino's daughter Deana Martin.
The Rotary Club of Elk Grove's Styx, Stones, and Bones Ribfest runs Friday and Saturday and features 40 teams competing for a total of $10,000 in prizes. And there's a Styx cover band. That's next to Elk Grove High School, 150 Lions Dr. (Arlington Heights Rd., between Higgins and Beasterfield.)
