There are always so many great things going on around town. In fact, if you’re like me, sometimes it’s hard to pick and choose where to go. So…each week, I’ll tell you about some really cool events that either I’ve personally seen, or ones that people are raving about. So here goes:
5.Chicago Humanities Festival: At first glance, this may look like a bunch of intellectual babble and talking heads. But…take a moment and really look at the schedule. You will find tons of exhibits, film screenings, concerts, and dance performances…and yes, if you’re in the mood for brain food, there are plenty of events to satisfy that hunger. By the way…this year the festival has a “going green” theme: The Climate of Concern. **There is also a Children’s Festival**
4.Niki in the Garden: OK…this is your last chance to see those colorful, larger than life statues amid the greenery at Garfield Park Conservatory. It closes on October 31st.
3. Six Corners Monster Movie Festival: This is one of my favorite ways to celebrate Halloween. And the Portage Theatre is a must see in and of itself. It’s a perfect backdrop for ghouls and goblins kick back and catch a flick or two.
2.Pacifica Quartet: If you love classical music (which I do) you will love the young and vibrant Pacifica Quartet. The are in the middle of a Beethoven Festival.
1.Jersey Boys: My number 1 pick this week is Jersey Boys. What an incredible show!!! Even if you don’t like musicals, chances are you will enjoy it. It’s the first time the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons has ever been told. Call now and get tickets. It’s completely worth the money! Trust me!
