Labor Day Weekend

Laugh, Dance & Cheer This Labor Day Weekend

Chicago’s final weekend of summer is upon us. Below are some ideas of what to do in between attending BBQs & hanging out in beer gardens:

Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival
8/31 @ First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre


I was lucky enough to see Dave Chappelle last summer at the House of Blues and it was amazing. I’m not a big Flight of the Conchords guy, but I would sit through them just to see Chappelle again. Also scheduled to make appearances at the festival are the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, and Chicagoan Hannibal Buress.

Tickets: A few pavilion seats and lawn tickets are still available directly from the box office.  Premium seats are available from your guys at Gold Coast Tickets.

North Coast Music Festival
