Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Ten years ago the Lillstreet Art Center moved to Ravenswood. The gallery is celebrating the anniversary all weekend, starting today with the kick-off reception for Best Served Hot, an exhibit of ceramic works that celebrate the coffee ritual, complete with a DJ set by DJ By Lamplight and coffee and cocktails from Intelligentsia Coffee.

Taylor Street's Festa Italiana opens today with three stages of music, meatball-eating contests, grape stomping, and bocce ball. And most importantly, lots and lots of Italian food.

Ringing in the fall fashion season, the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival commences today with #ShopFest, a runway showcase featuring guest host Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and a performance by Jason Derulo.
