Around Town with Gabe Mendoza & D.L. Hopkins (Weekend of Events in Chicago for August 23, 2013)

Around TownThis week’s best events scream CHICAGO. Chow down on an Italian beef, sing along to R. Kelly’s music and gather at the Illinois Centennial Monument (You know, the recognizable landmark in Logan Square) for three summer festivals during the last full weekend in August. On this week’s Around Town, Vocalo’s senior hip hop correspondent Gabe Mendoza and co-host D.L. Hopkins provide the 411 on those events, plus share information about Back to School, the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and much more.
