Three Things To Do in Chicago, Oct. 15-Oct. 21

Watch a documentary about Chicago’s Southeast Side, run to support Middle Eastern refugees and meet the Borderless team at a beer tasting!

Each week Borderless Magazine highlights some of the best things to do in Chicago’s vibrant immigrant communities.

Friday, Oct. 15 Get a first look at “Southeast: A City Within a City,” a highly anticipated documentary telling stories of Chicago’s diverse Southeast Side. (The area was featured in our comic book “Reclaiming the Sacrifice Zone!”). The outdoor screening is at 9300 S. South Chicago Ave. Bring a chair or blanket!

Sunday, Oct. 17 –   Before it gets too cold, spend some time outdoors with Middle Eastern Immigrant and Refugee Alliance in Chicago. The group is hosting a 5K race at Erickson Woods Shelter #1 in Winnetka, with all raised funds going to support refugees assisted by MIRA.

Thursday, Oct. 21 –  Join us at Pilot Project Brewing (2140 N. Milwaukee Ave.), Chicago’s first brewery incubator and tasting room! You’ll meet our staff and taste beers you can’t find anywhere else. Get two tickets if you become a member of Borderless and donate $15 or more per month (or a one-time gift of $169 and up) between now and October 19. Included with each ticket are two beers from new breweries like Azadi Brewing Company, which infuses flavors from Chicago and India.
