Bee Helpful

Logan Square Kitchen (2333 N Milwaukee) will be the site of a movie screening and fundraiser for the Chicago Honey Coop, which is looking for a new home. The group's apiary, which has been housed on an abandoned former industrial site in North Lawndale since 2004, must pack up and buzz off by this spring, as the land has been sold. The 2009 documentary Vanishing of the Bees, which chronicles the large impact that bees have on food production, will be shown at this weekend-long event (Friday and Saturday, 7pm; Sunday, 1pm and 4pm), with concessions by Lula Cafe and Yusho; admission $20.
