Look For ChiIL Mama This Weekend: Home Depot Kids Workshop, The Cabinet, Vegan Bake Sale For Haiti

Home Depot Kids Workshop 9am-Noon.   Tomorrow, we'll be making fun, checkerboard patterned, car displays.  It's free, fun and educational.   We've had a blast making a bean bag toss, wagon, trivets, and a firehouse bank during past months.   We're looking forward to making birdhouse shaped rain gauges in March.

One member of our Olympic curling team, Deb, works a day job at a Home Depot in Wisconsin.   So, your little Olympic hopefuls can sport their orange smocks proudly, as they follow their dreams and learn useful life skills.   You never know who you might meet at your local hardware store!

The Cabinet opens this weekend at Redmoon Theatre and it's highly recommended.   We saw their first production of The Cabinet years ago, and are eager to go back.   This makes a better adult evening out, as it's too intense for young children.

The Cabinet is not suggested for audiences under age 13. Parental discretion is recommended for younger audience members.
The Cabinet received this rating because it contains acts of violence and a dark story line.

Fridays 8:00 and 10:00 PM Price: $20

Second Chicago Vegan Bake Sale to raise funds to help with the tragedy in Haiti. Come on out and enjoy some tasty baked goods! Vegan brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and much more, including some gluten-free options! 

They'll be at Renegade Handmade, located at 1924 W. Division in Chicago, from 11:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. on February 7th. All proceeds benefit Food For Life, a charity supplying healthy, pure vegetarian food in Haiti and worldwide.

The first one raised over $1,300.00, but that’s just a drop in the bucket.  Treats galore!   Philanthropy never tasted so good.  If you're interested in donating your time or baking skills to the event, please email Marla at

Finally, we're off to Bloomingdale for another gymnastics meet for both kids.   If they both place high enough, we're off to STATE in two weeks!!
