Make Your Saturday Plans Now

By Margaret Lyons in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 16, 2007 11:09PM

Flurries possible tonight, but this weekend shouldn't be too, too chilly. Which is good because there's a ton of fun stuff going on tomorrow:

2007_11_16.pauladeen.jpgPaula Deen has two live shows at the Chicago Theater tomorrow. BYO sticks of butter, we're guessing. Tickets start at $45 and are still available for both the 11am and 4pm shows.

Not in the mood for angioplasty? Head over to the DIY Trunk Show, at Pulaski Park auditorium. We're starting to have a hard time telling the difference between all the craft fairs in the city, but DIY always packs tons of local vendors, plus the holiday shopping season is upon us.

If you're planning on being downtown tomorrow night, brace yourself for butts to nuts crowds: It's the Mag Mile Lights Festival, with the Mickey Mouse parade and everything. The actual ceremony starts at 6pm, but those enthusiastic about the event line up early. And the CTA is rerouting a bunch of buses.

Finally, there's memorial show for Pat Brice, a Chicago comedian who died in July and was best known for his work with Blerds. Tomorrow's show features the talents of Shawn Cole, Sean Flannery, Kyle Kinane, Jeff Klinger, TJ Miller, Brady Novack and CJ Sullivan, plus one of Brice's previously unseen short films. The show benefits Friends for Michael Houlihan.
