Hello and welcome to this week's edition of your Insider Weekend Guide.
If you missed it earlier, check out this stunning photo of a double rainbow
over Wicker Park. Photographer and Wicker Park resident, Andrew Miller,
sent us this spectacular photo following a storm earlier this week. But
that's not all, we've got lots of news to share - like where the newest
type bar is opening - and many great events heading our way including:
Green Music Fest, Movies in the Park and the Flat Iron's 100th Birthday

Movies in the Park - Movies in the Park kicked off in Wicker Park this week with Earth Girls are Easy
to a packed crowd in Wicker Park proper. What's on our radar? Hotel
Transylvania this weekend in Noble Square and Little Shop of Horrors next
week in Bucktown. Movies in the Park.
Lillie's Q Special Sauce - For a limited time only, you can score a bottle of Lillie's Q Bourbon Barrel Aged Smoky BBQ sauce. Only 200 bottles in total have been produced and this smoky sauce sat in Henry McKenna Bourbon 10 Year Single Vintage bourbon barrel for six months. You can pick up a bottle in the Wicker Park location (1856 W. North Avenue) but you'd better hurry.
Le Colombe To Open in Fall- We reported last week that Red E Chicago was moving on to Milwaukee Avenue directly next to Taxim and an official location has been announced for Le Colombe. They're moving into the space currently the home of Greener Cleaners at 1522 N. Damen Avenue just steps away from Go Glazed and Cafe Transit opening in the Blue Line El Stop. Look for Le Colombe to open this Fall; specifically September or October.

are sorry to report one of our favorite shops, Greenheart Shop, is
leaving Wicker Park.The team behind this eco-friendly, fair
trade-focused boutique at 1911 W. Division Street is packing up and
heading to Old Town. Their last day in Wicker Park is July 21st and
