THIS WEEKEND IN CHICAGO – Making the Most of Another January Weekend!

The fourth weekend of January is here yet we still have one more to go. It’s not often we get five weekends in a month! So, let’s make the most of what this weekend has to offer!

How would you and your family like to travel back 65 million years to experience the thrill of the prehistoric age? For this weekend only, Dinosaur Adventure transforms the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (5555 N. River Rd.) in Rosemont into a prehistoric exhibit with big dinosaurs and tons of family fun. This adventure features children’s activities with a variety of dino-mite activities that include a realistic fossil dig, racing in Jurassic jeeps, riding their favorite dinosaur, bouncing around in a prehistoric playground filled with themed inflatables, slides, obstacle courses, mazes and more! Other features include a dinosaur study where you can learn about the prehistoric age and its most popular dinosaurs, a fossil casting to mold your own fossil replicas to keep, a mining adventure to search for gems and fossils that you get to take home, and much more! You’ll have a roaring time!

One of the world’s most popular and critically acclaimed comedy ensembles, Baby Wants Candy! (a musical improv supergroup) is back at The Second City (230 W. North Ave., 3rd Flr.) in the Old Town neighborhood with its fully improvised full band musical. The ensemble creates the opening and closing night of a one-night only smash-hit musical based on audience suggestions! It’s been said that this show is a roller-coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers, heartwarming characters, rhyming verses and witty, jaw-dropping comedy!

How well do you know the Bible? You can find out by attending Bible Bingo at the Greenhouse Theater Center (2257 N. Lincoln Ave.) in the Lincoln Park neighborhood which runs every Friday and Saturday night (8 p.m. – 10 p.m.) through March 13th. Join Mrs. Mary Margaret O’Brien, a former nun, as she raises money while playing bingo and making sure you remember your catechism lessons! It’s a crazy night filled with bible trivia, audience interaction, and the funniest quiz about the Holy Family you’ll ever see.  Laughs, trivia, nostalgia, Bingo – what more do you need!

Chicago’s very own Beverly resident Hypnotist Chris Jones will be appearing at the Beverly Arts Center (2407 W. 111th St.) in Beverly this Saturday with two shows (5:30 p.m. is a Family Friendly show and 8:00 p.m. is a PG13+ show). Chris Jones gained notoriety with his appearance on America’s Got Talent and since then performed on shows like The Steve Harvey Show, Windy City Live, Good Day Chicago, Penn and Tellar and others. You’ll enjoy a unique evening of entertainment with a night of magic and laughter!

Finally, it’s Countdown to Super Bowl LVI! Twelve competitors entered the arena last weekend on Super Wild Card Weekend. Six left victorious! Who will you be rooting for this weekend?
