Before the winter hibernation, it’s time to get in our final harvest-day adventures!  And I have a unique Chicago-centric suggestion for you:

Check out the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago, for FREE access to all sorts of historical and architectural treasures.  It’s this weekend ONLY!  And after gallivanting around the city, come settle in for a FREE history-curious variety show at the Clark Park in Roscoe Village.  In addition to paying homage to the Riverview Amusement Park (closed in 1968), the show includes music, comedy, and eccentric performing arts acts.  The Clark Park Advisory Council will be selling concessions and warm beverages.  Bring chairs and blankets to watch the show in ultimate comfort.  Show details here.
