Memorial Day Weekend is almost over, and you missed Saturday’s Janet Jackson show in Tinley Park. Don’t fret, my friend.
You live in one of the most amazing cities in the world where there is always something to do, even when the holiday weekend is just about over.
So with that said, here are five fun things you can do before you head back to work on Tuesday:
Affion Crockett at the Chicago Improv
This man has been called the next Jim Carrey. And if you’re familiar with his impressions and parody videos, you already know he is a complete fool. For more information on Sunday night’s 7 p.m. show, go here.
Monday Afrobeats on the beach @ Pier 31
Pier 31 in the Summer is a whole movie. And this Monday Summer series starts with DJ Diesel, who will spin Afrobeats by the beach. You’ll want to lock this and other Pier 31 events into your Google calendar right now. Here’s the best part — it’s free. You can find more information on this Pier 31 event and others on this site.
Blerd Bash – Chicago 2023
Blerd is short for “Black Nerd.” This celebration of urban nerd culture is all about anime and gaming. If you know and love a blerd, then the Blerd Bash is the word. You can find more information about it right here.
Party Noire: Deep Rooted
If the dancefloor is your church, then this Memorial Day event is your sanctuary. From 3-9 p.m. at the Promontory, DJs will spin the Blackest dance grooves from around the planet, from house to reggaeton and from afrobeats to dancehall. Head here for more information.
Los Angeles Angels v. Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field
The White Sox may be down, but they’re not out yet. What’s more, they will be playing an Angels team featuring the best baseball player — Shohei “The Unicorn” Ohtani. Seeing Shohei up close is worth all the tickets. Speaking of which, you can visit this link to get one (or two).
