Hello!
farmer's market After some technical issues last week, we're happy to be back in business with the weekly calendar!  Now, on to the good stuff. You're guaranteed to have the best Memorial Day grill out on the block if you pick up farm fresh meat and produce at the Freight House Farmer's Market!  You can enjoy tunes by Dave Maxwell and Chuck Hanson while you shop, too.
teen job fair Do you know a teen looking for a job? Send them to the RiverCenter Wednesday for The Mayor's Teen Job Fair. This is a unique one-stop opportunity for teens seeking local jobs.  Later this weekend, the sounds of the windy city will be in the air when Chicago rapper Chief Keef hits the  RiverCenter stage! Down the street at GAHC, stop in for an event highlighting German wedding traditions with Kathi Hofmann.
picadilly circusFeaturing camels and zebras performing with ponies, clowns and an Elephant Extravaganza, the Piccadilly Circus is sure to please the whole family tonight at River's Edge!  If you're looking for other family events this week, head to the Figge to see the Young Artists at the Figge exhibit before it closes this Sunday or hit up a River Bandits game.
With four Blues Music Awards including the 2010 Album of the Year, Joe Louis Walker is not to be missed at  River Music Experience Friday!  If you're more of a Neil Young, Tom Petty, or Bob Dylan fan, come hear what Dead Leaves has to offer on Saturday. For something a bit more uptempo, check out the The Waffle Stompers upstairs in the Redstone Room.  From Mandolin Junction to Community Drum Circle, there are plenty of more events at RME this week, too.
fun for foodies Sick of the same old dinner routine? Mix things up this week when the Figge offers a cooking class and dinner for their Fun for Foodies at the Figge event. Hosted by the Figgey's very own executive chef, Dave Mickelwright, enjoy a delicious meal while learning how to prepare it yourself!   Make sure you grab your complimentary gift to remember the evening!
Project Green SpaceAlthough this event isn't until NEXT Thursday, we wanted to get it on your radar now because it's sounds highly entertaining.  Promoted as "Art! Music! Grilling! Astroturf!, the Figge is hosting  Project Green Space, which will feature graffiti gurus Kevin Lonergan II and Gary White!  Brats and cold beers will be on hand and the evening will end with a projection of artwork projected ON the Figge by Bruce Walters.
App Photo If you haven't already done so, now is the perfect time to download our downtown Android App or iPhone App! You'll love the quick lists of local events, shops, and restaurants when you're out and about this summer.  Remember to thank the men and women who've served  this weekend and we'll see you downtown!
