With summer flying by, I’m bound and determined to check out some of the fun events Chicago has to offer this weekend! See you there?
Tonight 8/9, Chicago Summer Dance is featuring Funadesi, a Bollywood and Bhangra dance group. Dance lessons will be offered from 6-7pm and then open dance will begin at 7:30pm until 9:30 in Grant Park.
Later, the ROOF at theWit Hotel (201 N. State Street, Loop) will be hosting a fashion show featuring cityblue designs. Fashion enthusiasts can enjoy seeing upcoming designers from the 27th floor on rooftop patio of the ROOF patio for no cover charge. The show begins at dusk, 7pm (IDs required).
On Friday, the 2nd Friday Gallery Night in Pilsen will be happening at S. Halsted and 18th Streets. Gallery and shop owners in Pilsen open their storefronts once a month to showcase their art. It is free of charge and offers refreshments.
After a long week, I plan to go to a free yoga class Sunday morning at the Belmont Harbor. Open to all levels this bi-weekly yoga class (Tuesdays 6:30-8pm and Sundays 11-12:30pm) overlooks a beautiful view. BYOM (bring your own mat!)
Also on Sunday, the Vintage Bazaar, a popup vintage showcase is opening in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom (1106 W. Lawrence Ave in Uptown) 11am-5pm. Vendors featuring vintage furniture, clothing, and accessories are combined with cocktails, local food, music, and other fun vendors. Great deals and an amazing selection of vintage goods are promised.
