Wayne’s World, the movie, turned 25 this week. Remember when you could buy the VHS at McDonald’s? That’s how my friend Guy got a copy. Guy is his name. I’m not using the word guy as a pronoun. I’m from a place where the name Guy is relatively common.

  • Do some daytime stuff:
  • The Empty Bottle’s Winter Record Label Fair has a bunch of local record barons on deck to sell their wares to you!
  • The Music Box is doing a pre-noon screening of Cool Hand Luke!
  • Head out to Rosemont and check out the RV & Camping Show, it’s a lot of fun. They have so many campers you can go inside and pretend you can afford!
  • Hopewell Brewery is turning one years old today, and they’ve got a bunch of festivities planned for their birthday party!
  • Rogers Park Social hosts a special daylong charity event called Suds n Java for a Cause!
  • Delilah’s 19th annual Vintage Beer Fest has over 100 aged and vintage brews on deck for you to sample. Crazy stuff, dude.
  • The Chicago Whiskey and Wine festival, which celebrates two of my favorite things, comes to Joe’s on Weed St. today.
