Friday is the end of the work week for most Chicagoans. Of course, if you are travelling backward through time, Friday may be the beginning of the work week. Chicago sports, weather, and of course art exhibits, have Friday references.

You may have heard that many people cook fish on Fridays—Fish Fridays. I cannot verify this for Chicagoans. However, alewife, carp and trout are local fishes, and you are unlikely to catch more of them on Fridays.

Friday the 13 is probably an unlucky day even in Chicago. (Friday the 13th is certainly a mysterious, television series.) In 2013, Chicagoans certainly had their share of very hot Fridays.

No local ordinance bans the creation of art on Fridays. Therefore, if you are Robinson Crusoe, and you want to paint a portrait of Friday on Friday, go ahead. It is unlikely you will be finished by the next day—Saturday; several Fridays may pass before you are finished.

Occasionally, art exhibits may end their shows on Fridays. These exhibits are likely to be in the Art Institute and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Some art exhibits at Chicago’s Cultural Center may also end on Fridays.

Chicago does not have any TGIF restaurants. It is unlikely that there are many Fridays in Chicago’s Blue Pages. On Fridays, winds in Chicago can blow just as strongly as they do Monday-Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
