10 Things to do this weekend

It's starting to look more and more like fall, but that doesn't mean the fun has to end. Check out the ChicagoBusiness Web site for some weekend activity ideas.

One of the things they mention is the Daniel Burnham Scavenger Hunt sponsored by Chicago Public Radio. This is one of many activities commorating the one-hundreth anniversary of Burnham's Plan of Chicago.

We have our own Burnham exhibit right in our own backyard. At the Glessner House, there are artifacts and architectural remains from some of the grand old homes that used to populate Prairie Ave. in the late nineteenth century. These artifacts are on display in the Glessner carriage house/visitor center. Burnham's firm not only designed some of the homes here; Burnham married into a Prairie Ave. family.
