Welcome to the RE-mix! This blog is the love child of RedEye and Metormix Chicago and our mission here is a little different than you're probably used to. In addition to spotlighting events and promotions we do with sponsors, expect fun content dealing with music, nightlife, and cool things we come across. Who's your host? Thanks for asking! How kind of you. It's Ernest Wilkins. He's our man about town and will be the main person you hear from. His main goal is to bring you the awesome, so much in fact that he's starting to be known around town as "Chicago's Wingman".

Put the metaphoric lampshade on your head, guys, because it's Labor Day weekend. Yep, with a day off from work on Monday. you can justify partying Friday through Sunday, preferably outdoors and with a summertime drink in hand. If you're sticking around the city, four fests offer music, quirky art, jazz and boundary-pushing performances around 'hoods from Logan Square to Jefferson Park. Lucky for you, summer fest season's not over yet. kbernot@tribune.com @redeyeeatdrink   Remix Chicago Where: 2200-2300 N.

There currently is a petition on the White House's official website asking the government to change the national anthem to R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix). " Yes, you read that right. Ain't democracy grand? If you're not familiar with it, whitehouse.gov includes a section called We the People, a place to organize and sign petitions about issues that are important to you. If enough people support the petition, the White House will release a statement commenting on it. As of Thursday afternoon, the R. Kelly petition had only 7,500 signatures.

Ah, Pitchfork weekend! The usual joy that only comes with standing among a sea of "cool dads" and guys in Superchunk shirts (that Venn diagram isn't as wide as you might think) is on illegal steroids this year with the anticipation of R. Kelly's performance Sunday night. Some may scoff, but Kells has been dispensing all kinds of knowledge throughout his career. The man's got GEMS, people. Here's some situations you might find yourself in with R. Kelly songs that you should listen to solve them.

Do you really need an excuse to drink a margarita during the summer? Didn't think so. Tailor-made to banish heat and humidity, this simple cocktail - at its most basic, a margarita is just tequila, triple sec and lime juice - gets a flavor boost courtesy of creative bartenders around town. If your go-to is a traditional margarita on the rocks, mix it up with a floral version. If you're not a fan of sweet drinks, try a smoky, mezcal-laced margarita or one garnished with garden-fresh herbs.

When Kanye West announced last month that he would be releasing a remix of a song called "I Don't Like" by a relatively unknown Chicago artist named Chief Keef, it prompted confusion in some corners of the Internet. "What is Kanye thinking?" posted one YouTube commentor who arrived at the song's original music video, which features the rapper, 16-year-old Keith Cozart, rapping, smoking and goofing around with a roomful of friends. "This is the [bleep] Kanye doing a remix to?" posted another.

Fans of raw fish can look forward to two new options coming to the South Loop this month. West Town's Kai Sushi plans to open its second location this month in Donna's Cafe's former space at 1255 S. State St. Owner John Tsendsuren said he'd always wanted to set up shop in the South Loop, but couldn't find a good space when he was opening Kai six years ago. When he heard Donna's was closing, he jumped at the opportunity. “I think it's a nice, growing new neighborhood," he said.
