Despite the roller coaster ride Chicagoans have been on lately with this war between winter and spring, we’re gearing-up for yet another wild weather weekend that brings us the following events!

Get ready for the largest educational event in North America as the 23rd annual ReptileFest takes place at Northeastern Illinois University Physical Education Complex (3600 W. Foster Ave.) in the Gage Park neighborhood this Saturday (10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) and Sunday (10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) where attendees get to touch, hold, and get close to hundreds of amazing reptiles and amphibians throughout this 40,000 square foot space! However, no animals are for sale at this action-packed weekend!!

Not into touching or holding slimy critters? Then join Clearbrook’s Associate Board at their 8th annual Mad Hatter Mayhem Pub Crawl this Saturday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Wicker Park neighborhood. Don your wildest, kooky hat for this event which features drink specials, a silent auction, raffles and contests, including best female hat, best male hate and best team hats! The crawl begins with check-in at Whiskey Business (1367 N. Milwaukee Ave.) with scheduled stops at Nick’s Beer Garden, Flat Iron Chicago and ending at the Emporium Arcade Bar. Plus, a party favor, appetizers, giveaways and more are included in the ticket price!!

Get ready to stuff your face at this year’s The Taco Takedown where home cooks will face-off for the title of Chicago’s taco master this Sunday (2:00 p.m.) at Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln Ave.) in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Think your super-secret taco recipe is tops in Chicago?

For all my American Girl doll fans out there, the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington St.) in The Loop is the place to be this Sunday from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the American Girl Fashion Show! This fun-filled event for girls, their families and their dolls features a colorful fashion show presentation of historical and contemporary fashions as well as elegant refreshments, door prizes and more!

Last but not least, the 2016 Baseball Season begins here in Chicago with the Chicago White Sox hosting the Cleveland Indians at U.S. Cellular Field on the South Side this Saturday and Sunday at 1:10 p.m. Let’s Play Ball!!

As for the Chicago Cubs, their home opener isn’t until Monday, but dedicated Chicago Cubs fans will be celebrating their home opener of the 2016 season in the spirit of “Wait ‘Til Next Year” this Saturday (7:00 p.m.) at the 108th Annual Next Year Day event held in the heart of Cubs territory in Wrigleyville at Heating & Cooling Pub (3530 N. Clark St.). Event highlights include great drink specials, amazing games, live music from Del Crustaceans, The After Party and Katey Day, a charity raffle benefiting Peace for Pits and much more!
