It's A "Three Day Weekend" Kind of Weekend! YAY!

I have new sundresses, new shades and SPF 45....I'm ready for Memorial Day weekend! I'll be hitting up Randolph Street Market Festival on Saturday thanks to the two free tickets I won from Tara at Haute Lunch. Then the Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival, a Chicago Rush game to see my little sis jump around in booty shorts (she's one of the team's dancers) and a little Memorial Day barbecue. Not too shabby for Chicago Quirk!

Chicago beaches open today!!
I absolutely LOVE spending a Saturday afternoon hanging out at a lakefront beach. I like Montrose Beach since it's a less crowded, but there's much more eye candy and lively activity at North Avenue and Oak Street Beach. Either way, you can now get your beach on until September 5. (Although I'm such a wuss that I won't actually go in the water until August. Too cold!)


Being unemployed last year sucked, but at least I had some nice beach days!

Don't forget about Bike the Drive. Yes, I wussed out, but that doesn't mean you have to! (Note to self: maybe do something to prepare for a 30-mile ride...like actually get on a bike.)

And if you're looking for the perfect spot for a Memorial Day picnic, Time Out Chicago suggests these spots. I personally love Oz Park and North Pond in Lincoln Park.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone!

  2. Yay! What a great weekend! I'll be at the festival during the early bird hours tomorrow (8-10:30ish), but we ended up getting Cubs tix, so we'll be heading to the game midday! I'm also looking forward to the beach! I also like Montrose better, but am more often at North Ave b/c there's more volleyball down there. Hope you have a fab weekend! Maybe I will see you tomorrow bright and early!
