The Hypocrites: H.M.S. Pinafore through Feb. 7th

One of our favorite local theatre companies is at the Den Mainstage, 1329 N Milwaukee Avenue until February 7th with what local theatre critic, Hedy Weiss, calls “magic at work” when “…a director can turn a crowd of about 200 mostly young…Wicker Park types into the happily participatory members at a loony pajama party set to the music of Gilbert and Sullivan.”  Just a short walk  from the Two Urns and pajamas are optional.  http://www.the-hypocrites.com/

For those of you that know Blue Star’s “Cindy” – she will be performing!

Great shopping just a short walk from Two Urns during the summer.

Every summer the neighborhoods of Chicago come alive with different festivals and events.  We love all the handmade indie-vibe crafters that are here during the Renegade Craft Fair every September.  The West Fest offers a great line up of music talent, artisan  and sidewalk shopping.   Design Harvest highlights many of the city’s unique design firms and is always the last “hurrah” of the festival season, just in time for autumn.   All in  “West Town” the area directly north west of the Loop  (Division Street south to Grand) here are some of the 2014 highlights:

We always have lots of guests who come in for these events so plan early to book to get the best room choice.
