Weekend Guide, September 26-28

I haven't done this in awhile, but this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous! Enjoy the last few days of warm weather by going to any one of these events this weekend (or use MetroMix, Going, and any other number of websites to find out what's going on in the City of Wind)...

Sex, Lies, and Little Black Dresses
Ok, so I have never been to this event, but doesn't it sound amazingly ridiculous? Every last Friday of the month, a fashionable theme is picked out by the people of Boutique Nightclub. This month it's "Tight Fit" and ladies wearing corsets or bustiers get in free until midnight and get a chance of winning a $100 certificate to G Boutique (link may or may not be SFW). A-mazing.

Bump Soul Party
Swoon! I love old school soul and R&B. I love Wicker Park. I love dancing. Therefore a soul dance party at the Subterranean (2011 W. North) in Wicker Park sounds like a match made in heaven. Make sure to get there before 10:30 for no cover, free boozing (Highlife, the Champagne of Beers) grooving.

Wired NextFest
WIRED, a magazine thats profiles all things tech, is taking over Millenium Park's South Promenade starting this Saturday with its NextFest, a "showcase of the global innovations transforming our world." See the future now with 44 exhibits (covering everything from robotics to green living) and gadgets on display until October 17. Click here for times and more info.


Second Annual Hyde Park Jazz Festival
14 hours of free jazz in historic and beautiful Hyde Park on a sunny Saturday afternoon. What more could you ask for? Venues and performances are spread throughout the neighborhood, so visit the website for specific information. The event kicks off at noon in the DuSable African American Museum (740 E. 56th Pl) with a performance by the Jazz Institutes's Jazz Links ensemble and ends midnight at the International House (1414 E. 59th St) with a midnight Slam Jam. I may have to swing by my old neighborhood to check this one out...

Enjoy the City!
Walk around your neighborhood! Go to the Lake! Play in an area park! Have a picnic! Do something to enjoy the predicted 73° weather.

I'm planning on picnicing with my boyfriend and then walking to a used book store. What will you be doing?

I will be lamenting the fact that I don't live in Chicago...

I think everyone should live in Chicago, or at least visit :)
