Things to Do this Weekend Around the Sloop

Although it ain't going to be warm this weekend, you should still put a couple pairs of pants on and wander over to "Snow Days Chicago" which starts today at Grant Park (specifically at the corner of Balbo and Michigan). We didn't know much about it last year and randomly stumbled upon it and had a great time. They have some snow boarding competition as well as some very impressive snow sculptures.

If you would rather do something inside, but not in your place, the Spertus Museum has an interesting lecture topic on Sunday:
In Behalf of the Israelites
Abraham Lincoln’s Jewish Controversies

Sunday, January 31 at 2 pm
Spertus, 610 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago

Finally, although not technically in the Sloop you could go over to UIC to support the Windy City Rollers:

CHEER. The Windy City Rollers open their home season with FLAT TRACK ROLLER DERBY at UIC Pavilion. This all-female match-up includes Hell's Belles vs. Double Crossers and Manic Attackers vs. The Fury. Jan. 30, 6 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, $21 at the door. 525 S. Racine Ave.,

Or you can just sit inside, watch a movie and stay warm...I wouldn't blame you.
