The obvious choice for celebrating this weekend is City Pages Beer Fest (featuring beers from more than 30 breweries and food from Velee Deli Food Truck, Pat's Tap, Big 10, and Old Chicago), but if you're looking for more to do on Friday, Sunday, or Saturday before 5:00 p.m. and after 9:00 p.m. we have a few good options.
