Today is International Star Wars Day (May the 4th Be With You!)... it’s the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby this evening (post time, 5:50pm CT on NBC)... then Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow! So put on the head gear of your choice, get your light sabers ready and toast to all of them with a margarita mint julep!
Lots of music to take in this weekend and next week…
The Temptations and the Four Tops take over the stage at the Chicago Theater tomorrow night at 7pm.
Jazz lovers… Herb Alpert and wife Lani Hall appear on two sold out, wait list only shows tonight and tomorrow night at City Winery.
For my hip hop heads, DMX celebrates his 20thAnniversary Tour, “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot” at House of Blues tonight, doors open at 6:30pm.
And during the week… catch the good Reverend Al Green at Chicago Theater on Tuesday 5/7 at 8pm.
Then Howard Hewett, Freddie Jackson & Jeffrey Osborne kick off Mother’s Day Weekend at the Venue at Horseshoe Casino next Friday 5/10 at 8pm.
Whatever you choose, have a great time and don’t let me EVER hear you say you don’t have anything to do!
