Friday Night Flights, Chicago's popular new summer-long series of events highlighting Chicago’s thriving craft beer scene, is down to its final two nights for the summer.

“Since its launch last May, Friday Night Flights has become a premier city showcase for Chicago’s neighborhood breweries and craft beer scene,” Mark Kelly, commissioner of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events said.

Tonight's event, scheduled for Chicago’s Riverwalk, featuring food, 14 of Chicago's best breweries and the music of DJ Mike P and guitarist Griffin Crowder is already sold-out.

If you don't have tickets for tonight's flight, you are not completely out of luck--but you may want to move fast. The final event for this summer will take place Friday, August 25 in Ravenswood Corridor (1800 W Belle Plaine Avenue) from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

Ravenswood’s historical industrial corridor, a nearly 2-mile stretch bounded by Irving Park Road to the south and Balmoral Avenue to the north, runs along or near Ravenswood Avenue. The corridor, recently rebranded as Malt Row, features six breweries and one distillery making it the perfect spot for this summer's grand finale.
