TimeOut Ranks Andersonville and Uptown Events In Summer Top 10

TImeOut Chicago announced the 31 things they are looking forward to this summer. In the article they showcased everything from local events and performances to restaurant openings and movies. But topping the list (including the #1 spot) are fantastic events in both Uptown and Andersonville. But big duh! They are only telling us what local residents already know, Uptown and Andersonville/Edgewater are the bomb when it comes to lots of things including events.

vintagegarageSo who made the list? Firstly, the top spot goes to Uptown’s Vintage Garage located at 5051 N Broadway, between Foster and Argyle. Their success has been an incredible journey that shows no sign of slowing. Occupying the garage on the property, the event brings over 100 vintage and antique dealers together under the roof selling unique merchandise. In the story Laura Baginsky says, “This monthly sale brings together some fantastic vintage vendors in an unlikely location: an Uptown parking garage. But when the sun is beating down (and that will happen sometime soon, I promise), a dark, cool garage is a nice respite. Plus, I can shop for everything from furniture to cute vintage dresses.”

MidsommarfestSecondly, an Andersonville institution is given its rightful place at the #10 spot, as well as the top Summer fest on the list. Every year Midsommarfest showcases the area in this stellar event complete with food vendors, fun merchandise and awesome entertainment. The event also ushers in the start of Summer, giving us the realization that Winter is now far behind us (for now). In the article, LB writes “Now that I have a kid, my festival priorities have changed. I still always want to find a fest with decent booze options (maybe even more so now), but now I also like a fest that isn’t a claustrophobe’s nightmare (North Center Rib Fest, I’m looking at you). Midsommar Fest delivers.”

With growing popularity, both Uptown and Andersonville/Edgewater  bring it with amazing style, and it is always nice to get our props. Looking forward to Summer! See the  TimeOut Article here. Got other local events that need their props? Tell us below:
