LOGAN SQUARE — Looking for weekend plans?
Here are some ideas of things to do in Logan Square this weekend, starting Thursday night.
Watch “Bob’s Burgers” (for hours) at an art gallery
OK, so this one is happening Thursday night, but how can you pass up an opportunity to hang with Tina Belcher and the gang for an extended period of time?
Art gallery FDC at 2341 N. Milwaukee Ave. is hosting a “Bob’s Burgers” marathon, starting at 8 p.m., with TV with film critic Angelica Jade Bastién as the host.
Try Bixi Brewpub
It’s opening weekend for Bixi Brewpub, owner/chef Bo Fowler’s highly-anticipated Asian brewpub at 2515 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Starting Thursday afternoon, Bixi will be open to the public and serving up their own beer — made with Asian ingredients — and an array of both traditional and updated Asian dishes like “biang biang” belt noodle soups and burgers served with bao and house Sichuan bacon.
If the weather cooperates, we recommend putting Bixi’s massive rooftop deck to use.
Join a giant art-making party in Unity Park
Unity Park’s annual “Art in the Park” event kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday and goes until 2 p.m. at 2636 N. Kimball Ave. At the free event, people of all ages and skill levels are invited to create art at one of the many stations. This year, there will be mini skateboards available for use, plus a live DJ.
Shop for vintage furniture
Itching to spend your weekend shopping for unique home decor?
Timothy Burkhart, the owner of mid-century modern and vintage furniture shop Dial M For Modern, is constantly bringing new treasures into his eclectic shop at 2773 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Score fresh veggies
There’s no better place to buy farm-fresh produce in the neighborhood than the weekly Logan Square farmers market.
Head to Logan Boulevard between Milwaukee and Whipple avenues Sunday anytime from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. to get your hands on everything from locally-made soap to farm-picked flowers.
