What are you doing this Memorial Day weekend, Chicago magazine?
“I’m going to Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit. Voted best niche festival by Rolling Stone in 2011, it’s a hipper, more underground alternative to Electric Daisy Carnival with an older crowd, more sophisticated music selection, and fewer neon accessories. —Andrew Cho, editorial intern
“I’d recommend seeing The Pianist of Willesden Lane at the Royal George Theatre. It’s a Holocaust story—and it’s utterly beautiful and inspiring. It’s just been extended through July 7. I know it doesn’t sound like a Memorial Day weekend kind of thing, but if the weather’s bad… Plus, it’s right next door to Balena.” —Penny Pollack, dining editor
“I’m going to the opening weekend of the Randolph Street Market. Not only is it the best source for vintage in town, but there are great food and drink vendors—and it’s outside! On a nice day, nothing is more fun for a flea junkie.”—Gina Bazer, style editor
“I’m heading to Lincoln Square Lanes for some bowling with friends. They recently revamped the entire space, so there’s a lot more to do than just hit the lanes (probably for the best, considering I’m lucky if I break 100 when I bowl).”—Emmet Sullivan, senior editor
