Sarah Derer writesCome to the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival this Weekend!

They had me at “pop-up cocktail bars”.

Yes, it’s time to welcome summer once more with the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, running from this Friday, June 28th through Sunday, June 30th, in lovely Logan Square. There will be bands you like, including a set by The Cairo Gang, whom The Chicago Reader recently christened the “Best Rock Band” in Chicago at 2pm on Saturday. Go to that. There will be food to enjoy as you mill about Milwaukee Avenue—the festival has terrific offerings from some of the best restaurants in the area, including Longman & Eagle, Lula, and newcomer Parsons Chicken & Fish. Who doesn’t enjoy eating off a paper plate and sucking down a grown-up beverage from a pop-up cocktail bar while checking out what the local arts scene has to offer? I know this gal does. Plus, CHIRP Radio will be there so come and say hello!

The festival runs Friday, 5pm-10pm, Saturday, noon-10pm, and Sunday, noon-10pm. There is a $5 suggested donation.
