Chicago shopping events this weekend + Weber Grill visit

So, we’re closing in on May, and spring retailers haven’t missed their cue. For one last indoor hurrah, Randolph Street Market hosts their antique market this weekend. And, in honor of Earth Day, stop by the eco-conscious Fashion Day Revolution show or shop the World Fair Trade Day Festival. There are a ton places to check out these next few weekends, happy shopping!

Weber Grill

First, l sampled the new spring menu at Weber Grill and it. was. tasty. We started with Mediterranean salads that had a ton of flavor and crunch. I ordered the Chilean sea bass as an entree and it was huge! But so delicious. The fish was flaky and the tomato dressing was a great pairing. The cocktails were yummy with fresh fruit and flowers, I ordered a daiquiri with a hibiscus flower and my boyfriend ordered a blueberry gin and tonic. The petite desserts were a range of raspberry, pineapple coconut, strawberry basil and salted caramel. Definitely going back!

Randolph Street Market

I am most excited to visit Randolph Street Market this weekend. I’ve written about them before and have been impressed by the number of vendors and the stuff that shows up. I’m moving soon, so I can’t wait to decorate a new space. I’m in desperate need of interesting accent pieces and structured end tables.

When: Saturday/Sunday, April 25-26
Time: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Where: 1340 W. Washington

Also, if you’re into vintage furniture check out MegMade‘s new warehouse space in Roscoe Village, Meg Piercy and her team rehab antiques and offer custom made options.
