Around Town with Gabe Mendoza & DL Hopkins (Weekend of October 18)

Around TownChocoholics get your cocoa cure at this year’s Chicago Fine Chocolate and Dessert Show. The public is invited to walk through 150 of the city’s architectural treasures during the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago. Decide who reigns supreme: Prince or Michael Jackson at DJ Spinna’s Soul Slam at the Shrine nightclub. In the spirit of Halloween, the Music Box presents its annual 24-hour Music Box of Horrors 2013. Note: Fraidy cats and Around Town’s hosts Gabe Mendoza and D.L Hopkins won’t attend the fright film fest. But they have the scoop on it, plus details on other best weekend events.
