June 1st 2012


Hello and welcome to this week's edition of your Insider Weekend Guide.


Wicker Park's Do Division Festival and Sidewalk Sale kick off today so this week's Weekend Guide is all about Division Street with a few community events and a little news too to be sure you're in the loop on the neighborhood. The Do Division Festival is centrally located between Damen Avenue & Leavitt but sidewalk sales will be happening up and down Division Street -- all the way to Ashland Avenue. The street is also packed with large patios due to the extra wide sidewalks. So no matter where you land, you'll have a terrific time.
