Vero Beach Real Estate Voice: January 2010

This Weekend in Chicago - January 30-31, 2010

Always something to do in CHICAGO...this from my colleague Dean...

Good Morning, folks!

Another cold winter weekend in Chicago . . . but still lots to do!  From our Team Member Sue Moss, here's an update of some of the things happening this weekend in the City of Chicago.

Snow Days Chicago - a three-day winter festival in Grant Park.  Over 27 beautiful and unique sculptures, made entirely out of snow, will transform the City into a winter wonderland.  Snow sculpting began this past Wednesday with selected Teams and wraps up at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.  Don't forget to cast your vote Saturday between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. for the "People's Choice Award".  The Awards Ceremony, open to the public, will take place Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the Chicago Hilton and Towers in the Waldorf Room.

Besides the snow sculpting competition and the high school snow sculpting exhibition, Snow Days also features dogsled racing and weight pulling demonstrations, a snowboard rail jam and kids' activities at the Activities Igloo. So bring your whole family out for a full-day of fun in the cold!  It's free too!!  Click here for further information as to times and any last minute major changes due to unsafe weather conditions.

Did you happen to miss out on the Polar Bear Club New Year's Day Swim at North Avenue Beach?  Guess what - you can redeem yourself this Saturday at the 9th Annual Lakeview Polar Bear Club's Polar Plunge at Oak Street Beach (1000 N. Lake Shore Drive).  Participants are to meet at 11:30 a.m. for a pre-plunging photo shoot before frolicking in the icy waters of Lake Michigan at high Noon.  After you thaw out, Galway Bay Pub will host an evening after-party from 9:00 p.m. to midnight.  Besides serving up drink specials, raffle tickets will be sold for $2 each to help raise funds for two local families in need of support.  Click here for helpful hints for you Polar Bears as well as information on the two local families.

On a much warmer note, the Windy City Rollers Season Opener is Saturday at the UIC Pavilion (525 S. Racine Avenue).  It's a double-header evening for the roller derby league beginning with Hell's Belles vs. Double Crossers, followed by Manic Attackers vs. The Fury.  Our ladies team reigned #1 in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association's North Central league in 2009!  For more details and ticket information, click here.

Lastly, there's the Winter Music Festival at Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort in the Lakeview neighborhood.  This week long bash, along with the adjoining bar The Coach House, features cover bands, DJ's and drink specials.  Click here for the music line-up, and stop staring at your four walls!

Did we miss anything happening in YOUR world this weekend?  Please share!

Enjoy, but  . . . Keep Warm!
