Black Canvas X Society 2201 To Host Bulls vs. Knicks Party Next Friday

Chicago basketball fans are bound to feel a certain way this Friday when D.Rose and the Knicks go up against our beloved Bulls. 

No matter who you cheer for, I won’t judge you. Just know I’ll be rooting for number 13, my favorite french speaking, man bun having, player.

It’s pretty much blasphemy to not watch the game, so make a night of it and catch it at Society on 2201 W. Walnut. 

Who will you be rooting for Chicago?

On November 18-20 of this year, a new art festival,Connect, will be gracing the streets of Hyde Park. DNA Info reports that ” after the Silver Room’s block party attracted nearly 16,000 people to Hyde Park in July to see more than 50 musical acts, the University of Chicago offered to foot the bill for a second festival in the fall.”.

Kudos to organizer Eric Williams for committing himself to making the neighborhood a place where the arts are able to thrive. The festival will be using vacant storefronts as as galleries for the weekend in a genius display of creative ingenuity.  I know one blogger who will definitely be in attendance.
