    Bars

There is always lots of fun to be had at the bars in Wicker Park and Bucktown. On Twitter, we often get asked what the specials are across the neighborhood. For your convenience, we've set up a list on Twitter of all the bars in the Wicker Park & Bucktown (who happen to be on Twitter) so you can see what the specials are on any day.

As always, we are so very lucky to have so many incredible theater and performing arts options in the neighborhood. This weekend: My Chicago. My Chicago explores Chicago from the kids' point of view. Fun for all ages. And calling all Gleeks! Gleetastic is heading back at Davenports but not many shows are scheduled. So don't wait until the last minute. These shows always sell out.
