My facebook notifications told me I have six upcoming events today, so I’d thought I’d share some info about them and others organized by strong network of influencers (you guys rock, by the way). Thanks to them, in spite of these dreary forecasts, Chicago is offering a lot during Memorial Day Weekend. Plus, I’d like to think those meteorologists don’t know what they’re talking about considering that I’ve been burning up since Monday. With that said, here are three parties and a playlists to get you through your Memorial Day festivities!
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND CHICAGO
05/27/16 Risque Rooftop Pool Party
ASAP Experience, Josh J, DJ Playmaka, & Epic Nights are joining forces to bring you the dopest rooftop experience in the city. According to Playmaka, this is a very exclusive event and you must purchase a ticket for entry. The party will have special prizes as well as food from Garifuna Flava. If you have any questions though, or want to learn more about future experiences, click here.
05/28/16 The Blklst Summer Fashion Showcase
I’ll admit, this event isn’t exactly a “party,” but Black business is always worth supporting and celebrating. On Saturday Jazell Smith of J. Smith’s Blklst and Ladetria Warren of Twisted Rose Metal will combine their love of the art and fashion for their new debut of summer collections featuring African prints in contemporary silhouettes. The showcase will take place at African International House located in the art gallery of Harris Park from 11:00am to 3:30pm. The event will also feature an appreciation brunch followed by two fashion shows at 12pm and 2pm.
On Sunday May 29th, Jerry's In Wicker Park will showcase the first annual MemFest hosted by Smash Cash & Only4TheReal; two very familiar media outlets in the Chicago area. There will be live performances by Cash Over Clout, SmartMouf, Jinx The Natural and many other local artists. DJ Steezy will be blessing the ones and twos. Show starts at 8, so be on time!

Just in time for the weekend fun, here are some new sounds from some of your favorite Chicago localites: AJ Peace, DRXQUINNX, Chris Crack and many more! I even got hip to new projects from DJ Earn Money and Demetrius G that are so lit, you ain’t gon’ be sure if you want to praise God or dance with the devil!
