Weekly Roundup - Chicago Events

Weekly Roundup 

Chicago Events October 23 – October 29

Hey, Chicago and beyond! Who’s ready for a new week? I personally could use a couple more days off. I went into anti-social, hibernation mode to catch up on some very much needed sleep. I’m still fatigued but feeling much better.

Can you believe all the Halloween parties are this coming weekend already? Whoa! Where does the time go? Well, here is a list of fun events happening this week. There are a few I am interested in and considering attending but no concrete plans to do so yet.

I’ve added more fun Halloween events and deals at the end of the Weekly Round-up. Enjoy and let me know if there is anything else you want to see/read or if you ever have an event you want added to Now You Know and/or the Weekly Roundup, please send me an email at katie@nowyouknowevents.com.

Happy Monday! Have a blessed week.
