As much as I love a three-day weekend, I can't wrap my mind around the fact that this means the summer is over! In true Chicago Quirk style, you won't find me at any lame Labor Day luaus or guzzling themed bar specials. Here's what my weekend looks like:
Grab your 'fro pick and groove on over to the Soul Train 40th Anniversary Concert. Fun fact: did you know that Soul Train is a Chicago-based program and the longest running nationally syndicated television show? I didn't. Famous Soul Train host Don Cornelius will be honored, along with legendary R&B and soul artists. Don't miss the pre-concert Soul Train dance party at Cloud Gate (The Bean) from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Movies in the Park is winding down, so you only have a few more changes to watch your favorite flicks outside. I'll be at Seward Park tonight to see The Dilemma. Click here to view what's left of the movie schedule.
I wonder what's going to happen to the food trucks as the weather gets colder? Make the most of it while you can with an entire day of food trucks! Hit Food Trucks a Go Go at 694 Wine & Spirits from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. and then Food Trucks in Grant Park at Balbo and Columbus from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.
If you're looking to stay as far away from downtown as possible, head out to the new Ravenswood Remix, the city's first recycled art fair. You can wander around, look at art, eat food and even take some eco-friendly workshops. Check out the list of workshops. The paper mosaics class seems really fun.
Happy Labor Day!
UPDATE: Remember when I said I'm going to see The Dilemma tonight? Yeah, they cancelled the movie. BOOOOOO!
