A good friend invited me to Chicago's Folk & Roots Festival last weekend and I was pleasantly surprised:
1. Great music (especially Red Baraat...I ended up paying to see them again the next night and then buying their CD)
2. The artsy booths set up (bought another summery dress that I don't need...but it's so bright and happy!)
3. The community mural that was being created on the street by Nuestra Musica Chicago. It was just too cool, not to partake....
Oh, and 4. The good company! :)
