Last Minute Plans: Snowball Fight Tonight In Wicker Park

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Jan 12, 2012 7:40PM

Today we get our first real snow of the season. Sure, the warm weather was nice, but it isn't exactly what we expect in a Chicago January, and we sort of started to miss that snowy, chilly winter weather.

That's why Do312 declared war today, challenging Chicagoist and RedEye to a snowball fight tonight at the fountain in Wicker Park. Join us.

To whet your appetite, we've added video of Jimmy Fallon's classic song "Snowball Fight" below. And if it isn't packable snow, we can still make some snow angels and then go grab a drink together.

Bring it, RedEye.

Wicker Park, 1500 Block of Damen Avenue, South of the Damen Blue Line L stop, 9 p.m.
