As the prolific lyrics of Rebecca Black said, “It’s Friday, Friday / Gotta get down on Friday / Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend…” And we certainly do have things to look forward to this weekend.
November 7th AND November 8th
Jason Mraz is playing not just one, but two nights at the Chicago Theater, on his YES tour. Did you happen to get last minute tickets for the show (if so, lucky you)? Rooms are still available at a $169 rate using this link.
- Christmas is here – or at least at Macy’s it is! On Saturday, at 12:00 PM, the 107th Annual Great Tree Lighting ceremony will take place at Macy’s on N. State Street. Featuring a giant tree that has 3,000 beautiful ornaments, and is all strung up with lights, activities for the kids, plus a performance by American Idol Season 9 winner, Lee DeWyze, this is an afternoon that will certainly get you into the holiday spirit.
- Looking to get in some exercise and benefit cancer research at the same time? Chicago’s Perfect 10 is the thing for you! Choose between running a 10k, or 10 miles, starting at the Navy Pier.
- If you’re trying to get away from all of the chaos of downtown Chicago, the Horeshoe Casino is only 20-minutes away. This weekend is the 3rd annual Mariachi and Tequila Festival. A little culture, a little music, a little drink – sounds like a party not to miss out on.
- After a day of bustling around town, enjoying the sights, and all of the fabulous things Chicago offers, sometimes it’s needed to sit down, relax, and have a good laugh. The Arie Crown Theater has you covered with the Chi-Town Laugh-A-Thon Comedy Tour! This is sure to be a hilarious night.
