Here are seven things to do this weekend in Uptown and Andersonville:

Friday will be the first Cantina Nights held at the restaurant at 5025 N. Clark St. 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. (Update: The restaurant is currently closed due to plumbing issues. They will reopen Saturday for brunch, according to the restaurant.)
