Today might be the last day of Summer, but this weekend it’s supposed to feel more like mid-July. Make the most of what could be our last Summer-esque weekend by coming out to the Goose Island 312 Block Party outside of the brewery on Fulton Street. It’s an awesome set up, wrapped around a few blocks of brewery property, and of course they’ll have all the food, beer, and music you could ask for. Here’s what you need to know:

-The Main Entrance is at Fulton and Wolcott. Save yourself a trip around the block.

-In past years the event has been known to reach capacity before the main headliner. Get in early! The fest is today (Friday) from 5-10 and Saturday from 3-10.

-The event is 21 and over, dogs and kids are not encouraged.

-Admission is a $10 donation to your choice of a few local charities. How cool is that?!
