Admission is $5, and for another $5 with advanced purchase,you can begin the festivites with a "Low Tea" in this wonderful venue. Tea is served from 4 - 5 pm. Then performances will run from 5 - 10pm. You'll hear Big Time, who bill themselves as the ultimate Tom Waits Tribute Band, see Magician Michael Burke, find art exhibits in the parlor, tour the mansion, and hear DJs on the fusion-o-scope! This will be a fun time for all. For more info and details, go to www.steampunkchicago.com and sample Big Time on the attached clip.
If you prefer spending Sunday screening and discussing the price of gas, come to the main Oak Park Library and see "GasLand". This is a Free event for this award-winner and the talk after the viewing is always stimulating. More info at the following, http://www.oppl.organd check the attached clip.
