Every year Chicago hosts a music festival called Lollapalooza in Grant Park.   They are a week removed from hosting this year’s event and still cleaning up from the aftermath.   Not to be outdone, the NFL decided they want to take over Grant Park again as well.

The NFL Draft will be held in Chicago again for a 3-day event taking place April 28-30, 2016.   While the league fell short of saying Chicago will be the permanent place of the draft, few other places in the country can offer the space and accommodations the city offers.   The league held special meetings in Chicago today to discuss the draft and to hear proposals from various groups about relocating teams and moving them to Los Angeles.
