The Chicago Park District and the Friends of the Chicago River are offering a guided tour of the North Branch of the Chicago River this Saturday. The catch: the tour is by canoe! For only $15 they'll lead a guided tour of the river and feed you lunch. Considering that it's usually $18 an hour on the weekend to rent a canoe, this is quite a bargain!
