It's Hump Day. Bleh. Just get us to Friday already. Let's look ahead on the calendar and plan our weekend, now, shall we? On Sunday, we can kill three birds with one stone: get some great deals and discounts from some of the merchants along Southport Avenue, raise awareness about the Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation (and even bring home a new adoptable pooch lining the street that day??) and entertain the kiddos with face painting, sidewalk coloring and an Easter egg hunt at Hop Around the Shops. Sounds like a pretty good day to us. The festivities and sales take place between noon and 3 p.m., between Roscoe Avenue and Grace Street. Some participating stores include Candyality (3425 N. Southport Ave.; 773-472-7800), Dog-a-holics (3608 N. Southport Ave.; 773-857-7600) and M2 Boutique (3527 N. Southport Ave.; 773-248-9866). Hop on over to Sheil Park, 3505 N. Southport Ave., for a visit with the Easter Bunny himself and for the 4th annual Eggstravaganza egg hunts at 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.
