Weekend Guide*

Chicago is starting to come out of hybernation, and pretty soon the weekends will be packed with more happenings for one blogger to handle. So, every Friday I'm going to put together a little weekend round-up of some of the most interesting and atypical events around the city. Ch-ch-check it out:

International Tom Hanks Day @ Fizz Bar & Grill - March 26 from 12:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Who doesn't love Tom Hanks?! Fizz will host the the annual International Tom Hanks Day, an event featuring screening of the Hanks classics, music and a raffle of the actor's memorabilia. Founded by Chicagoan Kevin Turk, the day originally began as a Tom Hanks movie marathon at his house. The event grew each year, and Turk decided to create a charity event, donating proceeds to Lifeline Energy, one of the actor's favorite charities.

National Paella Day @ La Taberna Tapas on Halsted - March 25 - 27
Get your paella on with two events at La Taberna: $18 paella flights and a Sunday afternoon paella cooking class that includes sangria and recipes card. Call for a spot in the cooking class.

Enjoy a quaint afternoon of tree tapping demonstrations, fresh maple syrup samples, storytelling and more.

International Vintage Post Fair - March 25 - 27
Time to chuck that Led Zeppelin poster and check out a selection of over 10,000 originals from the 1890s through 1980s. This year's featured exhibit: "Sex Sells!"

And don't forget to turn off your lights!

*I realize that this is a terribly uncreative title, but I have really bad cramps right now. I'll do better next week.
