The North Bucktown Shopping District will host its jovial-souding "Fall Fling" on October 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. The shops lining Damen Avenue between Armitage and Webster will offer promotions and in-store events; some will sweeten the deal with free treats. Participating shops include Radiance Fine Jewelry and Comfy Fitness, and all businesses who are in on the Fling will have balloons out front. [Racked Inbox]
