Head to Mercadito this week for its Ode To The Avocado event, where you'll learn to whip up tons of Mexican delicacies. (Mercadito)
Memorial Day weekend is coming up fast, so it's high time to get yourself in gear for the first of (hopefully many!) summer trips. But, instead of jamming every maxi-dress you own into an overstuffed suitcase, take a couple tips from the pros on paring down your load. (Cheeky Chicago)
