Hey Mama Hey! Happy Friday y’all. This weekend has been busy for me and I am ready for some family quality time. I have a GREAT list for you. From Black History Month celebrations, beautiful art openings, to hanging out with loud trucks in the burbs…this list has it all! ObieQ and I will be out and about. If you see me, don’t forget to come up and say “Hey Mama Hey!”
Mama Fresh Pick of the Week: This week is so good, there are TWO!
All Weekend: Monster Jam @ Allstate Arena. Y’all when I tell you this event surprised me last year! ObieQ and I had a BLAST and have been waiting until they visited again this year. This is a event for the entire family. From toddler to teen, you all will love the action and quickly have a favorite truck..Mama Fresh Tip: bring headphones for you littles and ear plugs for yourself. It gets loud! Click here for deets
Mama Fresh Hook Up: See below for a code to save on tixs. Thanks Chicago Mom Squad for this.
Sat: Kido’s Black Made Market. I love this event because it shows us that WE are Black History. Black Makers from all over the Midwest will be right here in Chicago. My family is making this a must do and I think you should too. Click here for more deets
