Weekend Jaunts

  • Of course we've got to have a margarita or three today, so we are headed to Salud's Cinco de Mayo block party at 1471 N. Milwaukee. Last year we tried to go to Salud and the wait was far too long. This year they've decided to throw an indoor/outdoor party covering an entire block. Tickets are $5 and it runs from 1 p.m. - 2 a.m.
  • It's supposed to be a little rainy so we thought we'd head over to the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse, 1419 W. Blackhawk, for a forum about urban agriculture and planning. The forum is put on by the Planners Network UIC. The PNUIC is a group of professionals and students who strive for change in urban and rural planning. The forum will focus on creating a network for sustainable food systems.
  • The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State, will be showing 25th Hour this weekend as a part of their retrospective on Spike Lee. We could watch the Edward Norton monologue in 25th Hour over and over. The film shows at 6 p.m. and tickets are $9, $7 for students.
