5 Things To Do This Week In Chicago

Luxury Garage Sale Gives Back
In honor of Mother's Day, consignment mecca Luxury Garage Sale is giving 10% of this week's profits to Bright Pink, an organization dedicated to helping young women with breast cancer. Sell your designer goods, or shop for high-end steals, for a cause.
When: May 13 through May 20
Where: Luxury Garage Sale, 1656 North Bosworth Avenue (at Wabansia Avenue); 773-360-7293.
Pilsen Cultural Tour & Fiesta
Take a tour through this lower west side neighborhood, where they've managed to preserve the best of their Hispanic heritage. You'll get a private one-hour walking tour of the 'hood, dinner at Cuernavaca (complete with ice-cold 'gritas, of course), and then take a private shuttle bus to Dos Diablos, where you can down discounted drinks.
When: Thursday, May 17, 6 p.m.
Where: 18th Street Pink Line stop (at Paulina Street).
Hollows at Subterranean
