Weekend Jaunts: Sunday Edition

By Timmy Watson in News on Dec 17, 2006 4:06PM

Going with the 'last real weekend of the year' theme, we thought we would point out some things maybe you'd hoped get done in '06, but haven't quite gotten there yet. As always, feel free to leave additional events around the city in the comments section.


  1. Wanting to get inked up before the year is over? Head to Insight Studios, 1026 N. Milwaukee, for the Anti-Cruelty Society Benefit weekend. All profits from tattoos and piercings go to the shelter. The shop is open from noon - 10 p.m.
  2. There aren't going to be too many holiday art shows this year, the last day of the Bucktown Holiday Art Show is today and runs until 5 p.m. The show features art and antiques from area artists and collectors. Now in its 8th year the Artshow is at it usual location, 1914 N. Milwaukee.
  3. Every year we tell ourselves, let's go see The Nutcracker this year. Ballet Chicago presents rendition of the ever present, The Nutcracker. Tickets are $18-$25 and the shows starts at 7 p.m. at Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport. Go and get caught up in the Land of Snow and Kingdom of the Sweets.
