    Four for the Weekend | July 30-August 1, 2021

    Welcome to our latest edition of Fox Valley Magazine’s


    where cicadas come every year.

    So let’s get to it, starting with…..

    We’re Not Gonna Do It….

    This is an enlightened eNewsletter.

    We are the woke we’ve been waiting for.

    We are sensitive as all get-out.

    We are also part Italian.

    And thus we will refrain from injecting this post with all the hilarious Italian jokes and stereotypes perniciously advanced by the non-Italian majority.

    We will simply encourage you to go to Festa Italiana and have a ball.

    Or else.

    A Bee Gee By Any Other Name

    As children of the 80s, we grew up with the Bee Gees.

    And we’ve never quite figured out their appeal.

    I mean, look. The lead guy looks like a poster child for the WWE but sings with a falsetto that screams chess club.

    (Apologies to chess club members out there.)

    But they were enormously successful, so what do we know?

    So put on your dancing shoes and glitter and get out to RiverEdge to watch tribute band Stayin’ Alive do that Bee Gee thing they do so well.

    And For Something Completely Different…

    …maybe a little raunchy humor.

    The Comedy Shrine in Aurora serves up improv and raunch this Friday and Saturday evening, reaching for every shocking sexual gag they can come up with.

    Given the, er, less-than-refined status of today’s cultural norms, it’s hard for us to figure out how anything can be shocking these days, but it would appear that these guys are pushing the envelope.

    So head on down and don’t bring the kiddies.

    And Finally…

    It’s Batavia’s social event of the year.

    Now, we’re not saying that everything in Batavia revolves around cocktails. Not at all.

    They like food and music too, we understand.

    But they didn’t call it “Food and Music in the Park” now did they?

    So draw your own conclusions.

    Your weekly weekend weather advisory is looking fantastic this weekend. High temperatures in the upper 70s/lower 80s, and except for a brief period Sunday morning, not a drop of rain in sight. Plan accordingly.

    If, for whatever reason, none of our fabulous four events doesn’t pop your cork, we’ll be very insulted. However, all hope is not lost. Simply go to www.foxvalleymagazine.com and check out our A+E and Events sections for other ideas.

    Finally, please do us a favor. We would be eternally grateful if you could share this with some of your unsuspecting family, friends and neighbors. We’d also appreciate some love on our Facebook page (see below). Ok, technically it’s a “LIKE,” but don’t be pedantic. Also, that’s actually two favors. We’ll owe you.

    Thanks for reading. Until next time…OH!  One more thing.  If you’re reading this via the website and would like to have this emailed to you bright and early every Friday morning, please SUBSCRIBE!
