It seems like Lollapalooza is dominating this weekend's list of activities. Survival rule number one for those not going: if you can avoid the downtown area, absolutely do so. Everything between Lake St and Balbo east of Michigan is going to be an absolute wreck.
If you are going to Lollapalooza, please visit Chow Town for me. I wish I could get tickets to just that. I could really use a lobster corndog.
The Portage Theater presents Terror in the Aisles 8, a horror film bonanza starting at at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow night. You'll start the evening off with vintage horror movie trailers and then go in to Sleepaway Camp with director Robert Hiltzik in-person, followed by a theatrical premiere and a rare 35mm screening. Event goers can partake in the prizes, vendors and free autographs and picture taking.
The 21st annual Rhythm World concert series will end tomorrow night with a showcase of the best tap companies in Chicago. Tickets will sell out pretty quick, so don't wait to buy them at the door.
Get a little taste of Cuba with the Festival Cubano at Riis Park. You know I'm all about the food - and how can you beat delicious and authentic Cuban food - but the entertainment is the real reason to go. There's a non-stop schedule of musicians and DJs all weekend long.
