Stop by the Fine Arts Building and see where the magic happens, and where it's happened for artists, musicians and authors since 1898. It's the second Friday of the month and that means that several of the studios are open, so you can see paintings, artistic jewelry, breath walking, mixed media, and Hodge the cat.
If it's second Friday today, that means it's second Saturday tomorrow, and that means it's time for garden tours at Lincoln Park Zoo. They do more than care for the animals; they keep the grounds looking gorgeous and you can learn how they do it. The tour's free and no registration is required, so just show up and put on your gardening cap.
It may be second Friday and Saturday, but it's also third Sunday, and that means that El Cid is hosting its "Pig and Swig" back patio pig roast. There will be tons of pork-themed dining options and drink specials.

Are you an old soul? Then you may just find what you're looking for this Saturday.

Over 20 households are giving up the goods for bargain hunters.
