This weekend brought the Chicago land area some warmer temperatures and a much needed break from the snow! Due to relatively calm weather, I was able to get out with my friends and do a few fun things on and around campus!
We started our weekend with a trip to 115 Bourbon Street in Merionette Park, just a short five or ten minute drive from campus. My friends and I love to go the saloon for line dancing on Wednesday nights, but it is an even more popular spot on weekends. We had a great time watching one of our favorite local bands, Too White Crew, who perform old school rap and hip hop complete with a group of amazing dancers! Check out their website and attend a show if you can (and are 21 or over), you won’t be disappointed!
On Saturday, I got to do one of my favorite things, shopping! I am a huge advocate for buying clothes second hand to save money and resources. This weekend, I went to one of my favorite second hand stores, Plato’s Closet. Sometime last year the chain opened a store in Chicago Ridge, right near the mall and very convenient for SXU students. This weekend was what they call a “grab bag sale”. This means you get to fill a designated bag with as many clearance items as possible and you get the whole bag for only $10! It’s a great deal (especially for us college students) and my friends and I always have a great time looking through the clothes and finding items that suit our style. To find one near you, check out this website.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to get out of the house and have some fun! Until next time!
