-The Chicago Park District is hosting a "Party in the Park" at Gross Park. The "Party" starts at 2pm and lasts until 8pm. At 6pm, there will be a concert. (TBA)
-The Swimming Pool Project Space is having a closing/opening exhibition party from 8pm- 11pm. The closing artist is Lisa Majer (oil), the opening artist is Chris Hefner (video). Grolsch beer sponsors all events, so if you don't like the art you'll at least get a free beer.
-Modelo Club House Restaurant is celebrating the Mexican holiday of the "Child Heroes", 6 teenagers that refused to retreat while defending the castle of Chapultepec against the American forces during the Mexican-American war. You can read more about them here. The party kicks off with some karaoke at 7pm, and from what I can gather off the flyer, there will be 3 different mariachi bands during the night? (The website they list on the flyer does not exist and I was too lazy to call.) See the sexed out flyer below.
