Whether you spend your free time checking out the newest gastropub or visiting one of the many parks, Chicago offers its residents some of the best weekend entertainment in the country. From events and entertainment to food and festivals, we will attempt to dent the massive list of recreational opportunities in Chicago. Whether you like dancing outside in freezing February weather, doing a Polar Plunge with local celebrities, or bouncing between block parties all summer long, we have the information need. After all, it’s your weekend—we want you to have fun with it!


In addition to writing about seasonal favorites—did somebody say Ribfest?—we will also spotlight events that occur year-round. Additionally, we will begin to cover current events as they appear. If you find yourself bored in Chicago, you just don’t have the right resources at your disposal. We hope to provide that resource.
