- It was Labor Day in Chicago and all over the city families were pitching grills for the 1989 Ribfest. As Chandler Hancock, art fair director and Englishman abroad walked from his ho tel to the Navy Piers he could smell the mixed aroma of hickory, beer, and scorched beef everywhere. He whistled a private medley from The Pirates of Penzance , smiling at the anonymous faces in the oncoming crowds. Each street brought different sights and sounds except for that smell of hickory which remained constant, and except for the newspaper hoardings, which he eventually noticed. The y all announced the same thing: "New York Dealer Stabbed in Shower".
