Chicago's history has more to offer than a great fire, political corruption, and feuding baseball teams. The city that works also used to have a booming candy industry. The exhibit, "Sweet Home Chicago: The History of America's Candy Capital," is currently running at Harold Washington Library Center's Special Collections Exhibit Hall.
The Chicago Shakespeare Theater
is currently will be showing Cadre, a play about Apartheid-era South Africa, starting February 15.
Folk and country singer-songwriter Willy Mason will perform live at the Old Town School of Folk Music, Szold Hall.
