5 Things to Do in Chicago This Weekend

Cut a rug this weekend at Funk Fest Chicago or, if Salsa and Bachata are more your thing, at Hard Rock Café, where Enuel Nueva Era will perform his top hits. Get inspired by really smart people at 20×2, where twenty speakers get two minutes to answer one question, or TEDx, where economists and authors among others show you how to not make any little plans. Finally, don’t think kids should have all the fun on Easter. Join teams in Logan Square for a competitive adult Easter egg hunt.
