farrago Real Simple’s 10th Anniversary
As if a decade in the publishing biz wasn’t enough to celebrate these days, the New York–based magazine Real Simple is coming to town for a full day of free tips from pros newly local (The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris talks home decor at noon), longtime local (NBC Chicago’s Ginger Zee chats about green friendliness at 1), and wish-they-were-local (the designer Tracy Reese talks fashion at 5:30). And while we’re on the subject of anniversaries, weigh in on our list of the 40 best Chicago albums, the first in a series of top 40s celebrating Chicago’s own 40th birthday.
