Ready for a Chicago weekend full of eating, drinking and bicycling? Well maybe not all in a row! There's a bunch of things to do in Chicago this weekend, from biking down a car-less Lake Shore Drive to Memorial Day madness at several weekend parties and the annual Memorial Day Parade. Jurassic World dinosaurs take over The Field Museum, and once more Navy Pier is the place to be with the kick off to summer meaning FREE fireworks on the lake. Whether you're ready to jam to cover bands, get down with a House music party, catch local artists from a lakefront stage — or all of the above — Chicago is the place to be. It's time to make weekend plans!
