Things To Do In Chicago This Weekend

In a city like Chicago, I have found that there's never a lack of something to do, but finding that thing can be quite a challenge. So, being part of the 190N team at abc7 here in the city, I have honed my ability to recognize a cool event when I see one.

Keeping my finger on the pulse of the underground scene in Chicago as well as an eye on the more mainstream ideas, I have assembled a short list of good ideas for ways to spend the summer weekends. In this episode, I discuss my usual fest roundup (Lollapalooza, Edge Fest and Wrigleyville Summerfest) as well as some cool, underground happenings (Star Wars burlesque).

I think you'll find there's something for everybody here, families, singles and couples alike. Enjoy!
