Look for ChiIL Mama
This Friday through Sunday, we'll be at the fabulous annual Chicago Jazz Fest
downtown in Grant Park. I am always astounded at how many people come from around the world for our amazing free festivals, and how many Chicago natives are clueless they're even happening. Jazz Fest is family friendly and picnics are welcome. We're especially looking forward to hearing our friend, Jeff Parker, open the main stage Friday at 5pm. He's a world class guitar player and always a treat to hear.
Check out the above link for a full schedule. Jazz Fest runs noon to 9:30 daily.
Saturday, we'll be at Home Depot, 9am-noon, for their kids' workshop. The first Saturday of every month, they offer a free, hands on workshop, complete with orange, kid-sized aprons, like the employees wear. The kids get to bring home a project, like this week's bean bag toss, and learn useful skills.
