Sue MossWith Halloween and Daylight Savings Time behind us now, it's time to begin the transition towards the Holidays.

With that being said, this weekend can be considered a "bye" weekend before Chicago's Holiday main events take front and center.  So, why not take advantage of this "lull"; however, if you can't, here's what's happening around town -

The Allstate Arena will be welcoming "The Greatest Show on Earth" this weekend - the Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus.  There's always fun to be had at a circus for both young and old.  For me, it's eating tons of cotton candy until my stomach hurts!  Click here for show times and tickets.

The Museum of Contemporary Art in the Gold Coast neighborhood (220 E. Chicago Avenue) offers a Hide and Seek free with general admission.  The admissions desk can provide you with a guide containing clues for an art scavenger hunt.  Click here for more details.

Don't know a thing about Chicago's theater district?  Well, you're in luck!  The Broadway in Chicago Historic Theater Tour is offered on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m.  This tour will enlighten you with folklore and quirky facts about two of the following -- Ford Center for the Performing Arts, Oriental Theatre; the Bank of America Theatre, and the Cadillac Palace.  Click here for more information.

Speaking of the Cadillac Palace Theatre (151 W. Randolph Street) in the Loop, this Sunday evening is opening night of Young Frankenstein, you know, Mel Brooks' classic film where Dr. Frankenstein creates The Monster.  It'll be interesting to see how well it's been adapted for Broadway.  So, click here to get your tickets.  It only runs through December 13th!

Sheffield's (3258 N. Sheffield Avenue) in the Lakeview neighborhood will be hosting their 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off this Sunday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the beer garden.  It's for amateur cooks, so if you wish to compete for the $200 gift card, your entry must be received by 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.  Click here for further details.

Since this very well may be the last weekend of mild temperatures and no rain for a while, why not take Bobby's Lakefront Neighborhoods Bicycle Tour, which includes bikes and helmets.  In fact, yours truly, took this tour in July and thought it was well worth the price.  I had such a great time I'm going to do it again next year!  But hurry, this tour only runs through November 30th, so click here to get more details on this guided tour.

Lastly, there is one Holiday event taking place this Saturday at Noon, and it's Macy's 103rd annual Great Tree Lighting celebration in the Walnut Room.  But don't fret if you can't make it, the tree will be on display through January 10thClick here for further information.

Here's to a relaxing "bye" weekend.  A rarity here in Chicago!!  Do you agree?
