Alternative Summer Guide: Chicago's favorite season is almost here but we're not here to hype the most obvious summer hotspots.

Plus, the case for trading in your Lollapalooza pass, your guide to skipping this summer's popcorn movies in favor of a season full of dynamic screenings, and why you should skip the Cubs and check out the lovable losers of sixteen-inch softball.
