175 years is nothing to sneeze at. Instead, get ready to blow
out some candles at Chicago's big birthday bash at the Chicago
The ordinal (that's fancy talk for 175th) celebration includes
live entertainment and free admission to the museum to soak up
history dating back to the wild onion days. And of course, everyone
in attendance can nosh on a piece of birthday cake from the
Bleeding Heart Bakery.

have a healthy appreciation for delicious baked goods!
Noon-2:30 p.m. March 4. Chicago History Museum, 1601 N. Clark
