Let me be the first to say it: I miss winter. The thing about winter, is that it’s an easy excuse to stay in. That’s extraordinarily important for those of us who are socially inept mutants. Your excuses of snow and cold and wild wampas waiting to kill you and drag you back to their cave like that one scene in The Empire Strikes Back can’t be used anymore. You have to go outside again. And, if you gotta go out, you might as well have fun. Here are some events for April that will help you in that endeavor…

Go to these cool things! Prove to your mother that you’re not a nerd!

2011 won’t suck though. I’m determined to find things to do, ways to get out of the house; no more being a hermit! In case you want to get on board with this new trend of socializing, here’s a list of worthwhile Chicago events. You’re welcome.

No matter what you like to do on your birthday, Chicago offers plenty of options to mark your day the way you want.
