The Pilsen 2nd Friday’s Art Walk
Not many tourists make it down to Pilsen, the predominantly Latino neighborhood south of the Loop. But those that do are rewarded with a bevy of excellent Mexican restaurants to choose from along 18th Street, plus a whole host of art galleries to browse along Halsted. On the second Friday of every month, those galleries open their doors and host a neighborhood-wide party that offers art to view or purchase, live music and DJ sets, and lots of free wine and cheese.
You can read more about the Pilsen 2nd Friday’s Art Walk, including where to eat or drink before or after you check out the art, in my guest post on the Enjoy Illinois blog.
