FULL DETAILS: =================================== VeganMania Festival @ Pulaski Park 10am-4pm at 1419 W Blackhawk.
It’s not bad— in fact, vegan food is quite delicious and leaves none of the heavy greasiness of their meaty counterparts.

11:00 AM - 8:00 PM Adams & Wabash CTA Platform
Who says riding the CTA isn’t fun? Chicago has a new, unique take on the art world: Art on Track is the world’s largest mobile art exhibition, transforming an eight-car CTA train into an alternative gallery space. Various galleries will be presented by SAIC, the Hyde Park Art Center, the Flatiron Arts Association, and more. celebration of fine arts culture, reflecting the rich diversity & spirit of Chicago’s art community. But enjoy that ride on the art fair express - going back to Monday morning on the Brown Line will be kind of a letdown…
Insider Info: This event got started in 2008 and sounded a little crazy, but it turned out to be a lot of fun. Admission is a suggested donation of $10. Board the train at the Adams & Wabash CTA platform (you will not need to buy a CTA pass), and then you view the artwork while you wind your way through the Loop. Once you are on the train, immerse yourself in the various galleries; the train stops around the loop for you to switch cars. The handicap entrance is at Washington & Wells (36 N. Wells.)
