[See and Be Seen] What To Do This Weekend In Chicago: October 16-18

Are you looking for some fun things to do in Chicago this weekend, October 16-18? I’m always running from one event or activity to another — and I thought I’d share some of my adventures with you! So if you want to know where to go in Chicago to see and be seen, then this new series is for you! If you see me there, be sure to say hello!!

1. Epic Comedy Fest in Edison Park

If you like stand up comedy and have a car, you might want to head to the north side and stop in at the Wip Theater tonight and tomorrow night to catch the lineup in the 7th annual Epic Comedy Fest. This is a low cost activity (only $27 and BYOB!) and you are sure to get some great laughs. It’s a perfect idea for a date night, especially when your bf has reached his/her limit with dance or fashion-related events! 
I went to one of the shows on Wednesday night and was thoroughly entertained by the line up of Luke Swanson, Natalie Jose, Aaron Sutherland, Pat Mcgann, and Ronnie Ray. It was so good, that I’m planning to go back on Saturday! Check it out and get your tickets here.  

2. Joffrey Balley: Sylvia

I’m a long time supporter of the Joffrey Ballet. The current production is Sylvia, and I absolutely cannot wait to see it tonight!

“Sylvia presents a young woman at the crossroads of adolescence and womanhood, struggling to find balance between strength and vulnerability and discovering love only through the awakening of her own sensuality. Sylvia is filled with themes of ambition, obsession, unrequited love and lost opportunities.”

With that description, how could you possibly say no? It runs until Oct. 25, so there’s still time to convince your girlfriends or bf to go with you! Find out more and purchase your tickets here.

3. A Night in Sleepy Hollow — Bourbonnais Township Park District

I’m a total sucker for fall-related activities and you can basically lure me to any event that features a corn maze and a campfire! This is kid friendly event–with tons of games and activities including a pumpkin patch and hay rides during the day. Then, after 8pm, things get a little spooky!

You can buy $12 tickets to see a LIVE REENACTMENT of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow! Seriously, I’m told there’s a real guy on a horse who rides through the park…I’m SO THERE! There’s only 2 more shows this year–tonight and tomorrow night. So, get yourself out to Perry Farms for this cool annual tradition. Find out more and buy your tickets here.

4. Apple Picking at County Line Orchard

Again, I’m obsessed with corn mazes and apple picking is a quintessential fall activity! On Sunday, I’m headed out to County Line Orchard to pick a bushel of apples and get lost in the maze. It’s a kid- friendly, wholesome option for when you’re sick of nights out (or in) in the city. Get some sunshine, play outside and eat some apples plucked straight from the source. And did I mention the apple cider donuts??? Check out their times and picking options here.
