FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
festivals Pierogi Fest
Sort of like Chicago’s street fests—except with better food, less self-consciousness (the pierogi toss and polka contests are deliciously irony-free), and no admission. Follow the aroma of fried beef to Victor’s, a favorite vendor of the fest’s director.
GO: July 23-24 from 11 to 11, July 25 from 11 to 5. Indianapolis and 119th, Whiting, Ind. pierogifest.net
