THIS WEEKEND IN CHICAGO - WHAT SEASON ARE WE IN?
a little confused here as this weekend’s line-up in Chicago offers a little
from all seasons, which leads me to ask – what
season are we in?
Saturday (12:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.) and Sunday (10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) offers the Randolph Street’s Wonderful Winter Market
at Plumber’s Hall (1350 W. Randolph Street) in the West Loop neighborhood.
“SPRING FLING,” this weekend’s theme, brings a hippity-hop glimpse of
SPRING with jellybean bright flora and fauna, tulips galore, floral arrangements,
decorating ideas and entertaining tips as well as Easter eggs, chocolate
bunnies and an edible shopping feast for your spring pleasure! I do believe spring has sprung!!
you in the mood for some BBQ, fresh corn, craft beer and fresh produce with all
this summer-like weather? Then Sheffield’s (3258 N. Sheffield Avenue) in the Lakeview
neighborhood is the place to be this Saturday (12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.) as the Sheffield’s Beer Garden offers the Founder’s and Farmer’s Market. As they team up with Chicago Foodies and
Harvest Moon Farms to bring you this pig roast, farmers Bob and Jen will be on
hand as well to answer your questions about eating local from their CSA to
farming! Ahh, the aroma of summer
Peterson Park in North Park Village Nature Center (5801 N. Pulaski Road) in the
Forest Glen/Sauganash neighborhood offers you the Maple Syrup Festival this
Saturday and Sunday (10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.).
Come learn the entire maple syrup-making process from tapping the tree
to collect its sap, to boiling it down into syrup. This nature family-friendly event also
features hikes, campfires, story-telling and canoe trips. Truly something for everyone to enjoy at this
fall-like annual event!!
this weekend’s chill may bring you back indoors for one of these events:
Field of Screams Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt is back at the Field Museum (1400 S. Lake Shore Drive)
in the South Loop neighborhood this Saturday
(1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.). Join a detective
team as you try to crack a hieroglyphic code and question a suspect to uncover
the mystery of who or what has been knocking off the Field Museum staff as they try to acquire a sacred Egyptian
artifact! Do you have what it takes to
solve this mystery?
Indie Horror Film
Festival returns to the Portage Theater (4050 N. Milwaukee Avenue) in the Portage Park
neighborhood this Saturday (1:00 p.m.-11:30 p.m.) and Sunday (1:00 p.m.-10:00
p.m.). This annual fright fest screens
about 30 films from all over the world with the best of blood, gore and horror on
the big screen. Also offered are special
guest presenters, one of which is Chicago’s
very own, John Borowski, whose films have been called “holistic works of art,”
as well as vendors, a “Scream Contest” and after parties! Beware, not for the faint of heart!!
up this crazy seasonal weekend is the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle
this Sunday (8:30 a.m. Wave 1; 9:15 a.m. Wave 2) at Grant Park (500 S.
Columbus Drive) in The Loop. This annual 8K run is a great way to begin
your running season! Stick around for
the after party at Buckingham Fountain
(9:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) and enjoy live music from Mike and Joe as you kickback
and enjoy your one free beer! After all,
you do deserve it!!
