2nd Fridays artwalk is tonight in the Chicago Arts District/Pilsen neighborhood!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on November 13, 2009

I haven’t gone to the 2nd Friday’s art walks for the past few months but now that my mom is visiting from out of town, my sister and I decided to take her there.  Go eat some dinner in the neighborhood then walk around and take a look at some weird and expensive art…luckily not all of the art is weird and expensive.  Also note that this last sentence is coming from someone who is not very insightful and would rather spend money on things other than art.

If you have no idea what 2nd Friday’s is, there are a bunch of art galleries centered around 18th and Halsted Streets in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.  This group of art galleries and shops is formally named the Chicago Arts District.  Once a month, all of these art galleries open their doors to the public and people walk in and out of them looking at the artists’ pieces.  Plus, there’s usually wine, beer, and snacks in each gallery…they accept donations for them so don’t be cheap.

Iron Man playing in Kinzie Park at dusk!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on August 11, 2009

I’m pretty excited for my very first movie in the park experience and to top it off, they’re playing Iron Man.  In case you have no idea where Kinzie Park is, it’s located at Kinzie and DesPlaines Streets in the Fulton River District.  The movie starts at dusk which, according to weather.com, is at 7:56PM.  Nothing says movie in the park like smuggling beer or wine in a water bottle!
