5 Things to Do in Chicago This Weekend

This weekend is full of great events that will take you around the city and brighten your day, or night. From stars in the films and on stages to stars in the sky, we’ve got five great things to check out this weekend for you and your family. If food and film are some of your favorite things, and let’s face it, of course they are, then the Chicago Food Film Fest is perfect for watching movies while you try new cuisines. Love the city but wish you could stargaze? So does the Planetarium. With Adler After Dark, you can enjoy food and drink while taking in the stars. Or, see another star in Chicago this weekend at UP where Todd Glass, veteran comedian will be performing. For things to do with the little ones there’s Juicebox, a place for you and your kids to get up and moving with live music. And finally, see the Magnificent Mile light up the sky with a light festival kicking off the holiday season.
