Weekend Jaunts

By Timmy Watson in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 28, 2007 1:30PM

There is so much going on this weekend that is guaranteed to keep you from getting a whole lot of sleep. Take a nap and enjoy!


  • Tonight in the Kinzie Corridor you'll find music, fashion, and art for a paltry $10. We are pretty excited about seeing the magical sounds of Chicago's Telefon Tel Aviv. The $10 ticket gets you the address to the loft party, free beer from 10 p.m. - 4 a.m., and the opportunity to see live screen printing by Screen Print My Life. The party is being put on by the Chicago Fashion Industry, Alphabasic Records, RAWK! Magazine, and the Chicago Suicide Club.
  • Don't forget that this is the weekend for charity! The AIDS marathon training program and the Chicago chapter of the Crohn's and Colitis foundation both have events today. The AIDS marathon training program is at # Lakefront North(Foster Avenue Beach) and Lakefront South on Saturday and at Lakefront North(Foster Avenue Beach) and Oakbrook on Sunday. Then head to Fizz Bar & Grill, 3220 N. Lincoln, for the CCFA fundraiser. Tickets are $40 which includes free beer and wine from 9 p.m. - 12 a.m.
  • What? You haven't seen Body Worlds yet? We guarantee you will quit drinking and smoking for at least a few days after going. As we mentioned previously, the exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry will be open 24 hours for your viewing pleasure. They are packing up the bodies at 9 p.m. sharp on Sunday.
