The Bridgeport Block Party gets the Chicago Artists Month "Art Block by Block" program started off with a festive atmosphere. Along with a showcase of artists on three blocks of the South Side neighborhood, there will be food trucks, entertainment and trolley service to and from each venue.
Why go: The Bridgeport arts district is an emerging cultural scene that you should check out.
Reconsider: You are a true-blue die-hard Cubs fan, and this is too close to U.S. Cellular.
5-9 p.m. Friday at Bridgeport Art Center, 1200 W. 35th St.; Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219 S. Morgan St.; and Zhou B Art Center, 1029 W. 35th St.; free; chicagoartistsmonth.org
