Sue MossThis weekend in Chicago will continue to keep you in the warm-weather mode.  While our 50 to 60 degree temperatures will be leaving us, there will be several flower shows in town.

The 2009 Chicago Flower and Garden Show opens this Saturday, March 7th and runs through Sunday, March 15th.  This 15th annual event takes place at Navy Pier (600 E. Grand Ave.) in the Streeterville neighborhood.  Not only will there be more than 25 themed gardens you can walk through, but also a marketplace and more than 100 classes, hands-on demonstrations, gardening workshops and much more.  Click here for times, tickets and schedules for the cooking demonstrations, by local chefs, and the seminars.

The Lincoln Park Conservatory Spring Flower Show runs daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. through May 10th.  Get some color in your life with their display of azaleas, annuals and perennials.  Click here for more information.

The Garfield Park Conservatory Spring Flower Show also runs daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. through May 10th.  Hopefully, by then, we'll have some of our own annuals and perennials popping up in our backyards!  Click here for more information.

I'd also like to wish a very Happy 110th Birthday to The Anti-Cruelty Society!  They will be hosting a social mixer from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. this Saturday at their River North location, so grab those leashes and bring your furry friends, dog or cat, for an afternoon out.  Click here for more details.

Finally, with St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. will be the Northwest Side Irish Parade in the Norwood Park neighborhood.  You and your family are sure to enjoy this one with performances by 65 units.  Keep your eyes open for the Weiner Mobile as well!  Click here for more information and the parade route.

Oh, I wanted to mention too that a new exhibit opened at the Field Museum - Real Pirates.  This is a temporary exhibit, however, it runs through October 25th, so it's not that temporary.  Real Pirates features more than 200 artifacts recovered from the Whydah.  I wonder if Johnny Depp will be there.  Click here for more details.

By the way, don't forget to "spring" ahead one hour this Sunday - daylight saving time begins!!

Adjust your weekend plans accordingly since you'll be cheated out of an hour!
