SPRING SOIREE AND GARDEN PARTY

Frank's Weekend Faves, May 13, 2018

My favorite local performance this week? Sure, I love music and theater of all sorts. But for sheer eye-popping, breath-catching, how-did-they-do-that appeal, you can't beat a magic show — especially one with a cast of five.

I'm talking, of course, about "The Illusionists," direct from Broadway to the State Farm Center in Champaign, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 15.

Travel/Canary Islands, Part I | A history as rich as the landscape

By VIVIENNE MACKIE

The inspiration for this trip all started many years ago — to when I was an 8-year-old girl, to be exact.

At that time, my grandmother took me from Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) to Cape Town, South Africa, by train and then by steamer ship to England, a trip that took two weeks.
