  • Mini Ditka stole the Rembrandt.
  • The park district has announced the "Tour Da Lakefront Bicycle Challenge" in which they invite you bike the 18-mile paved lakefront path in 3 hours or less. Great idea, but isn't this already the most congested area of the bicycle trail system?
  • Ladyfest Chicago is a festival promoting women involved in arts and activism and takes place from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27, at the South Union Arts Marketplace. Local vendors will sell handmade clothing, journals, photography, poster art, paper goods and other arts and crafts.
