Let the Obama sightings begin. The former president will be back in Chicago on Wednesday for two events, reports the Chicago Tribune. A source told the paper that Obama will be in town for events at the South Shore Cultural Center and the Chicago Club. There's no word yet on whether these events will be open to the public.

The visit follows his April appearance at University of Chicago's Logan Center for the Arts, where Obama discussed civic engagement and community organizing with young leaders. With the former president's plans to open the Presidential Center in Jackson Park in 2021, we can expect to see more of our hometown hero in the coming years.

And if you're looking to spot Obama out and about, rumor has it he can't stay away from Valois Restaurant. Welcome home (again), Mr. (former) President.
