    The Body Mind Spirit Expo travels across the country to showcase advancements in alternative health, shining a spotlight on personal growth and metaphysics. During the celebration of all things holistic, visitors amble through the event space on a day-long jaunt as they munch on sample Luna bars and stop to match wits with astrologists, aromatherapists, natural healers, psychics, and mediums. Throughout the jam-packed agendas, speakers populate podiums for lectures that cover a hodgepodge of holistic subjects, ranging from theories on Atlantis's location to a speech on how to master life planning without making a to-do list on one's birth certificate.

  • Chicago Jazz Philharmonic
    Under the direction of artistic director and esteemed trumpeter Orbert Davis, the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic dazzles audiences with fresh riffs on jazz masterpieces. During the band’s tribute to Miles Davis, the Orbert Davis Sextet performs a rearrangement of the jazz great's milestone album, Kind of Blue, a work noted for its sensual horns, moody tempo, and liner notes written by Cookie Monster. In the second act, the 19-piece Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble assembles onstage to revisit Kind of Blue's immediate successor, Sketches of Spain. With a specially recruited lineup of strings and brass, the ensemble explores the record's Latin-flavored nuances, conjuring images of spectral gypsies and matadors wearing Ray-Bans. During both performances, audiences' vehicles can enjoy the majesty of floating quarter notes from cozy, free parking spots.

    With sizzling pans of their finest dishes in tow, chefs and cooks from across town congregate at the annual Taste of Skokie Valley to dish out tastings and support their community. At the event, which benefits more than 30 local and international charities, they’ll pile plates high with samples of their plump burgers, international delicacies, and frosting-laden cupcakes. When they’re not grilling, stirring, or slicing, the chefs chatter amicably with guests, raising their voices ever so slightly to be heard over the soft hum of the crowd and lively music from Michael Lerich and his Orchestra. The silent auction and raffle also keep things local, doling out prizes such as gift cards to local shopping malls or maps to locally buried pirate treasure.

  • The Evolution of Comedy Tour 2012
    Headlined by a trio of brainy joke crafters, The Evolution of Comedy Tour skewers superstition and politics from the storied stage of Laffs Comedy Caffe. Ian Harris, Jason Resler, and Maurice Northup combine skepticism, rationality, and humor to roast commonly held beliefs in the tradition of no-holds-barred social commentary. T-shirts emblazoned with the tour's logo demonstrate the wearer's logical inclinations and fear of exposing long-regretted flat-Earth chest tattoos. Over its comic-hosting career, spanning back to 1989, the brick-backed stage of Laffs Comedy Caffe has seen the observations of such beloved jokesters as Jerry Seinfeld, Mitch Hedberg, and Robin Williams.

  • Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra
    A two-time winner of the Illinois Council of Orchestras'' Orchestra of the Year award, Ars Viva thrills ears with musical programs expertly curated by veteran Maestro Alan Heatherington. "A Sunday Serenade" kicks off with Antonín Dvořák's Serenade for Winds, centered around delicate woodwind melodies and boasting a sweeping finish more powerful than a locomotive with a smokestack full of protein shake. Mozart's Serenade no. 12 weaves darker tunes together with contrapuntal harmonies, and Johannes Brahms's Serenade no. 2 showcases the monumental composer's lighter side with charming, high-energy euphonies. Before each piece, Heatherington dons a square academic cap and shares his symphonic sagacity with audiences, providing background on the tunes and their creators.
