This weekend is your last chance to visit Evanston History Center’s Black History Month exhibit, but it’s your first chance to see Goodman Theatre’s newest play, “The Upstairs Concierge.”

Families can also dine with the Easter Bunny and hunt for colorful eggs, or parents can get some much deserved “me time” at Randolph Street Market. Or, get fit with two free classes at Athleta.
