Green Festival is back again in Chicago and this time at McCormick Place. There will be great speakers from “No Impact Man” Colin Beavan, author John Perkins, and Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman as well as many more on fair trade, sustainability, environmental and health issues. Plus there’s great local vendors to check out and documentary movie screenings to watch. You’ll walk away with goodies and more information than you probably expected.

We had lunch last weekend at Irazu Restaurant, which serves authentic Puerto Rican food and a great BYOB place in Chicago. One of the best things to order is their oatmeal shake made with soymilk. Although we couldn’t get them to tell us their recipe, we’ll be back. Yum.
