It's a "Marilyn Monroe, Sausage and Books" Kind of Weekend

I think it's safe to say that we have finally made it to summer! I'm definitely hitting the Printer's Row Lit Fest and Sausage Fest this weekend. I'm hoping to make it over to the Marilyn Monroe brunch on Sunday, but that might be derailed by a much-needed trip to Ikea.. I love my apartment, but four years and a wedding registry later, it's time to reorganize.

Printer's Row Lit Fest - June 4 - 5
This was my very first Chicago festival, and it's still one of my favorites! I dare you to think of a book that you can't find in one of the dozens of book vendors throughout the Printer's Square neighborhood. And there's a very extensive schedule of events happening on both Saturday and Sunday, including cooking demos from Chicago's top chefs. If you have time, check out the Saturday evening festivities, Lit After Dark.

I also received a tip that there will be a flash mob at the fest on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

Marilyn Monroe's Birthday Brunch @ Kit Kat Lounge - Sunday, June 5, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.


  1. i think we're finally going to hit up the printers row fest!
    see you next week :) xo jillian

  2. Definitely lots of great events this weekend! I love to eat at Hackneys when I go to lit fest (as well as during the rest of the year), and the Kit Kat lounge is definitely a must! Their martinis are so delicious, and the performances are amazing!

  3. Yum! Strawberry Fest? My mouth is drooling a little bit, pardon me ;)
