How lucky are we to have "another break in the action" this weekend?  After all, you do realize what lies in wait for us?  That's right - an endless flurry (no pun intended) of non-stop holiday activities.  But for now, let's just enjoy this weekend.

The Irish American Heritage Center (4626 N. Knox Avenue) in the Irving Park/Avondale neighborhood will be hosting the 3rd annual iBAM!, which is a celebration of Irish Books, Art and Media!  Featured at this year's event will be live music, art exhibits, film screenings, theater performances, a poetry competition, panel discussions, workshops and more, all taking place this Saturday and Sunday (11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.).

The Logan Square Kitchen (2333 N. Milwaukee Avenue) in the Logan Square neighborhood will be hosting the Fall Pastry Market this Saturday and Sunday (10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.) with over 12 local vendors on hand selling their cookies, pastries, chocolates, coffee drinks and other sweets as well.  Also available will be gluten-free and vegan treats too!

Naha (500 N. Clark Street) in the River North neighborhood will be hosting the Chefs' Garage, Tag and Bake Sale this Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  This is your chance to browse both new and used cookware, kitchen tools, chef knives, cookbooks, sauté pans and more from the personal kitchens and restaurants where professional chefs work.  While there, sweet treats from the best local pastry chefs will be available for purchase and consumption!

Back in Chicago for a one-week stand ending this Sunday is the Rock of Ages at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts - Oriental Theatre (24 W. Randolph Street) in the Loop.  This Tony Award-nominated rock ‘n' roll event is a blast back to the ‘80s with hits from Pat Benetar, Foreigner, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Whitesnake and others!

Navy Pier (600 E. Grand Avenue) in the Streeterville neighborhood is hosting Chicago's Perfect 10 both Saturday and Sunday with a 10-mile or 10K course run along the lakefront, which includes an afterparty.  For those not interested in the actual physical part, there will be a Quality of Life expo as well with vendors focusing on healthy living.  Need some ideas for a New Year's resolution?

And finally, let's continue honoring our Veterans this weekend at the Move with the Forces at Soldier Field (1410 S. Museum Campus Drive) in the Grant Park Museums neighborhood this Saturday at 9:00 a.m.  This 5K run/walk benefits the veterans who have been severely injured in Iraq and Afghanistan in honor of Veteran's Day (11-11-11)!

Will You Be Taking Advantage Of This Break In The Action?
