After being a ChicagoNow blogger for almost a year (next month!) I JUST NOW figured out how to schedule posts to publish at a certain day and time. Why is this relevant? Because right now I'm on a plant to L.A. I'm bummed I'm going to miss out on the fabulous Memorial Day happenings but excited to see my family. Since you're still in Chicago, though, here are some ways for you to enjoy this holiday weekend.
It's the opening weekend of the Randolph Street Market , and you absolutely must go. In addition to all the usual fabulous finds at the market, this weekend will feature vintage and antique sports memorabilia and a delightful coupon for Middle Eastern cuisine.
Memorial Day weekend might not include a trip to the tropics - and if it does, why are you reading this - but you can enjoy the Hawaiian culture at the first Festival of Aloha. Take advantage of four days of concerts and pono festivals. Check out the schedule. I have to be honest and admit that I have no idea what most of these classes are, but they look cool. You can also participate in trying to break the record for the world's largest ukulele lesson on Saturday.
