Looking for something to do today? Agenda‘s got you covered:
The largest Latino festival in the midwest, Pilsen’s annual Fiesta del Sol, kicks off today with local music, an art pavillion, authentic cuisine, and more. The family festival also has a children’s carnival and a college fair. It runs through Sunday.
At the Newberry Library, the 29th annual Newberry Book Fair opens today and runs through Sunday. There are over 120,000 books for sale in more than 70 categories. Most are two bucks or less. Try finding deals like that on your Kindle.
And of course, the Reader‘s B-Side Booze Cruise sets sail tonight. Jane Beachy and Will Von Vogt of Salonathon host. Swaguerrilla, Caroline Rau, Gigi Lira, and more perform. Goose Island provides the booze. We provide the joy of being in our company.
