This throwback Thursday post is not going back all that far. It was last Saturday when we attended the Old Orchard Art Festival in Skokie IL. This was a very hot day and we were dressed in shorts and tee shirts. At the end of the art festival it started to rain but we just went into one of the many restaurants available at Old Orchard Mall and had a casual dinner. I had a wonderful time. 

This festival moves all over Chicago land and changes its name with each community. It is going on all Summer long and will be headed to the Glen in Glenview IL August 6th and 7th. Head over there is you want a fun afternoon. I think this is a great idea for the people and also so the artists get the most exposure. Anyway, I just love Old Orchard Mall, and Skokie IL. The mall is outside and has some of the best stores both national and unique. I can shop at Nortstroms or find a boutique that you would never see anywhere else.

Enjoy your day and remember today is Throw Bank Thursday.

Hi Noah, sounds like a fun filled Saturday at the Old Orchard Mall. Those afternoon showers are the best, especially if they force you to go into a nice restaurant.

Noah, I can feel the fun you had at Old Orchard Mall Art Festival last weekend. It sounds like there is something for everyone at the festival and showers aren't too bad if it means you have to go in and sit down for a nice meal!

Good morning, Noah -- well, it's kinda a TBT for me.  While I have been to Old Orchard Mall, it's been many years ago when I was in a wedding in Skokie.

Hi Noah Seidenberg ,  I have done a few Mall Shows around the Chicago area, but the Old Orchard Mall is one that I missed, I think.

Noah, I have also spent many a delightful day at Skokie's Old Orchard Mall and then capped it off with a stop in one of the restaurants. Your 'throwback' post reminded me of some 'throwback' memories.
