    Four for the Weekend | September 24-26, 2021

    Welcome to our latest edition of Fox Valley Magazine’s


    where the elite meet to eat (wait, that’s Jilly’s…)

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

    Time To Make The Donuts

    Nothing screams “healthy lifestyle” like “donuts.”

    We mean, John Belushi wasn’t wrong all those years ago when winning the Decathlon by eating Little Chocolate Donuts.

    So we heartily applaud the Geneva Community Chest for presenting yet again its legendary “Donut Dash.”

    So put on your running/walking shoes, grab a police officer friend, and head on down to Geneva for great exercise, great companionship, and most of all, great donuts. The breakfast of champions.

    September Oktoberfests Are The Best Oktoberfests

    Why is it that so many Oktoberfests are in September?

    (See our rant on Halloween below.)

    We don’t know, but our favorite Oktoberfests are community-wide Oktoberfests, and that’s what’s in store in East Dundee this weekend.

    Music, beer, food, kids activities. It’s all there. This is how Oktoberfests are supposed to be.

    (Lederhosen optional.)

    Keep on Truckin’…

    Food trucks are all the rage.

    We think it all started with that one movie about a chef who gets canned from a swanky LA restaurant and “finds himself again” by getting a food truck in Miami and making a name for himself while driving cross-country.

    Since we can’t remember the name of the bloody movie, perhaps we’re wrong.

    But regardless, this Saturday check out the Food Truck and Music Festival in Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles. Good fun, and even better when the proceeds are going to a great cause, Random Acts Matter.

    And Finally…Time To Get Spooky

    Yes, we know it’s still September.

    Yes, we know that it’s over a month to Halloween.

    Yes we know that this absurd acceleration of holidays is such that’s we’ll soon begin celebrating Christmas in July.

    But put all that aside.

    How cool does a cemetery walk sound on a darkling fall late afternoon? And one with characters coming alive and telling their stories from when they were “here.”

    Sounds pretty cool and pretty spooky to us. A perfect way to welcome the Halloween season.

    Your weekly weekend weather looks magnificent, with the exception of a chance of some rain Friday evening. Fall weather. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s. Yeah, baby. But this time of year, anything can happen. 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!
