Check out Fulton Fest from 2 to 7 p.m. today on Fulton Street between Damen and Hoyne. You’ll see home accessories favorite Unison Home, steel furniture and art maker Riggo Design, furniture maker McKinley Design, and lots more. There will also be edibles, craft beer, and booze, including handcrafted brandy from Rhine Hall. Consider us impressed, Fulton.

Chicago’s architecture is the star of the show tonight at a one-night-only all-architecture Instagram photo exhibit at Loft on Lake (1336 W. Lake St.). The free event, which runs from 7 to 11 p.m., will show some of the best Instagram photos taken of buildings in the city. See the gorgeous shot shown above by @dubelz, in which the photographer uses a puddle on a rooftop to reflect the skyline. Taken with a phone, folks! All of the images were chosen by Chitecture, a panel of five Chicago photographers who received nearly 4,000 entries for this contest. There will be appetizers, drinks, music, and prizes. RSVP here.
