Street Art in Logan Square

Yesterday, I visited Logan Square for the first time in quite awhile, to check out Brasil Fest. Although the fest was a bit lackluster – it was only two blocks and the actual vendors didn’t seem very Brazilian – the highlights were definitely the performers and their awesome dance moves. After getting through the fest … Continue reading

The Woman Scorned Summer 2013 Playlist

Recently, my co-workers and I were developing summer playlists, and after looking at mine, I realized my current view towards relationships might have had a hand in some of my selections.

Outside In: The Mexican-American Street Art Movement in Chicago exhibit

The other night, I checked out the opening reception for a new exhibit at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen, which features graffiti and street art by various Mexican artists.

Peaceful details of the Baha’i Temple in Evanston

The other day, my mom and I took a cruise up Sheridan, from the city, through Evanston all the way up to Highland Park. She was right when she advertised it as a relaxing drive, especially going through Winnetka, Glencoe and all those other lakeside towns. The houses along Sheridan around there are AMAZING. I’m … Continue reading

Roaming Lacuna Lofts in Pilsen

A couple weekends ago, I finally made it out to Lacuna Lofts in Pilsen for the F.A.M.E. Festival. Well, by the time I actually dragged my ass out there the fest was mainly over, but I did have time to make it up to the rooftop, take in the view of the city and wander … Continue reading
