If you're like us, you've probably killed a fish or two in your lifetime -- whether by accident or not. This Friday is your chance to do penance.
Friends of the Chicago River hosts Fish Liberation from noon-2 p.m. at the McCormick Bridgehouse and Chicago River Museum (southwest tower of the Michigan Avenue Bridge). For $5, guests will be able to adopt a baby bluegill, name it and release it into the main stem of the river, thus celebrating the annual return of wildlife to these waters. Reserve your fish ahead of time by calling (312) 939-0490 ext. 23. We can't promise "Lucky" will forgive you, but it's a start.
Oh, and while you're in a watery frame of mind, head west a bit to check out the Fish Hotel.
