Have a Festive Weekend

Beth Nelson

It's supposed to be a perfect summer weekend (perfect if you like hot hot heat!), and there are a ton of fun things to do ...

Old Town Art Fair is Saturday and Sunday and it's always a good time! Even better, the three fine men of Hey Champ take the stage Sunday at 12:30pm.

• The North Shore Art League's annual Art on the Plaza takes place this weekend in Wilmette. Cruise just 20 minutes north on Lakeshore Drive to check out the juried art show (quick, find a friend with a convertible).

• Head to Andersonville for their Midsommarfest. In between street vendors and libations, pop into the amazing shops up there (Brimfield and Scout top my list!). 

• Break from the heat at The Vintage Bazaar, returning Sunday to the Aragon Ballroom. Peruse the market for fun vintage finds (I'll be on the lookout for some vintage drinkware, nothing says summer like serving iced tea in a retro glass pitcher).

Happy weekend!
