Summer Time Chi, Ahhh

Kanye's famous line never get's old! We've successfully gotten over the Taste of Chicago "tourista en mas" hump, so now it's time to dig our heels into summer, Chi-Town! What's up this week? Glad you asked...

For starters check out this bit, the 15th Annual Chicago Summer Dance Series:

"Each night of the 11-week series offers an introductory one-hour dance lesson by professional instructors followed by two hours of live music and dancing on the 4,900 square-foot, open-air dance floor designed by artist Dan Peterman out of 100% recycled materials. The dance floor, titled Chicago Ground Cover is undergoing an expansion and restoration and will be completely renovated when Chicago SummerDance opens on July 7.

Highlights include a nostalgic evening celebrating Soul Train’s 40th Anniversary on July 23; Locos Por Juana on September 9; and events in conjunction with the Chicago Colombian Music Festival on July 9 and 22, the Latin Street Salsa Congreso on August 17 and 21 and the International American Tango Festival on August 25."
