5 Things to Do Around Chicago This Weekend
Celebrate that you finally made it through the week with five awesome events around Chicago this week! Every week we at Dream Town scour the city and handpick five things we’re excited about.
From culture and history, to weird culture and history, to checking out some art and theatre; you’ll have no shortage of things to talk about next Monday.
1893 WORLD’S FAIR FOOD TOUR
This special walking tour digs into how and why the 1893 World’s Fair captures imaginations more than any other event in Chicago history. On this fun and insightful walking tour, you’ll venture into beautiful architectural spaces from the era, play a few thoughtfully designed games, and enjoy food connected with stories from the Fair.

Come to Knit 1, a friendly boutique yarn shop, for a festive Sunday morning of gift wrapping, donuts, and mimosas. All the supplies to create a piece of painted wrapping paper will be provided. Learn how to make pom-poms and tassels to take your gift presentation from “wow” to “WOWZA!”
A warm and wondrous journey through Christmas, Chanukah, and the winter season…if you’re tired of the same old holiday entertainment, Chicago Tap Theatre has a show for you!

Adapted from Pauline Viardot-Garcia’s 1904 opera Cendrillon and many of her other compositions, Andra Velis Simon’s musical-play is an elegantly irreverent exploration of the classic fairy tale. The Hypocrites’ signature stylings are once again on display to revolutionize an older play with the same joy and inventiveness they brought to bear on the works of Gilbert & Sullivan!
