The Cat Video Film Festival is this weekend so let’s celebrate with the original Garfield TV show. It wasn’t very good. We watched it because there weren’t as many options.

Also, tell all your friends to subscribe to the Chicago mailing list. We give away stuff.



THIS_WEEK_ON_BYTWe write stuff. Here’s some of that stuff from the last week that may be applicable to your preferences!










  • Do some daytime stuff:
  • Day Lapse is an afternoon celebration of all things lap steel! Live performances and DJ sets from Michael Golas & Jordan Martins and Brent Heyl & Scottie McNiece.
  • Annie Hall is still very good even though you know, all the Woody Allen things. If you can square that maybe go see a pre-noon screening at the Music Box.
  • Catch a nice daytime tribute to the work of the legendary soul musician Curtis Mayfield at the Promontory!
  • The Chicago Wine and Champagne Festival takes over Revel Fulton Market, with samples from over 75 wineries available for you to sip on all the live long day.
  • Lincoln Square’s annual Apple Fest kicks off the Fall season! This is absolutely a Chicago staple.
  • Chicago Vegan Mania comes to the Broadway Armory in Uptown. Vendors, samples, speakers, and more! Just no animal products!
  • New Yorker staff writer Hilton Als, UChicago professor Jaqueline Stewart, and Northwestern professor Michelle Wright discuss the influence of black aesthetics on modern art at the MCA for a panel discussion called Art and Life
