Things to do
There are so many festivals in Roscoe Village that residents should be issued a social calendar.
  There’s the legendary Retro on Roscoe, a relatively new Halloween celebration and parade for kids, holiday lights, an Oyster Festival for everyone, and BAM! — the Belmont Arts and Music Festival, to name a few. When not fighting the crowds at a festival, residents eat, drink and are merry at some of the city’s most eclectic restaurants. Cabanas grace the garden at Volo Restaurant-Wine Bar; sushi redefines chic at Kaze Sushi and the pub grub at Village Ta p packs in a crowd. Residents bike or walk city streets to the Chicago River for a morning of kayaking on the North Branch. The Viaduct Theater provides a season of off-Halsted productions with a full-service bar.
  August House Studio, operated by Chicago artist Marya Veeck, offers a variety of art
classes for all ages.

“From the layers of her translucent paints crawl drifting figures with averted faces,
empty boxes, vulnerable bodies and mementos made painful by dust and obsolescence.”
