Compiled by Elvir Mujkanovich and Da’Shanae Underwood

As usual in Rogers Park and Edgewater, there’s plenty to do this weekend. Here are a few things we found.

Sauce & Bread Kitchen will be hosting its Pizza Haven monthly event Friday, Nov. 8, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $20 and 100% of the night’s profit goes to Girlforward, a support group for teenage girl refugees, immigrants or asylum seekers, according to their website. The entrance fee provides you with a leafy green salad, family style pizza slices, and a dessert to dine in. 

Also Friday, from 8 p.m. to -11 p.m., Trikone Chicago is hosting Galabi Jashan at 6328 N. California. Gulabi Jashan is a queer south Asian garba, or dance, that celebrates light and goodness at a time where light begins to be scarce now that winter approaches the city. The event itself is free, with a suggested donation (at entry) of $5. This event will kick off with a potluck-style dinner, so it’s recommended that you bring food to share. The event also offers mehendi work, pumpkin carving, rangoli pattern practice, board games and photos taken in a photo booth.

Cribbage enthusiasts should head to A Slice of Pie, 5357 N. Ashland. The event, aptly dubbed “Cribbage and a Slice of Pie,” will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., with all skill levels welcome.
