Fall is upon us, even though Chicago has had some strange, 70-degree days sprinkled in the last few weeks. Instead of hibernating in your apartment and watching Hocus Pocus or the original Halloween on repeat, we have a few ideas for where you can chill when the weather is a bit chilly.
Summer isn’t technically over yet, even though there’s been a sprinkling of cooler days here and there! Put the pumpkin spice lattes down and apple picking plans aside: celebrate September with these festivals.
Waterfront views, diverse cuisine… what’s not to love? Head up to Edgewater for these offerings, not to mention that comforting neighborhood feeling, antique markets, and have we mentioned the FOOD? Go on, call your Lyft. We can wait.
MORE festivals? Yep, you guessed it! August has plenty of fest options for Chicagoans to experience, and we have the only list you need in deciding which to attend. Prepare your weekends… there’s something for everyone!
Ah, a Chicago summer. After a lengthy winter, the wind coming off the lakefront is finally warm and residents of the best city in the world emerge from their apartments pale, shielding their eyes from the newfound cloudless sky, and grateful for the ability to finally enjoy outdoor activities again. One of the best ways to get fresh, local produce in the city? Farmers Markets. Here’s the best Chicago has to offer.
Look, we know you visit Chicago Diner for your vegan milkshakes, Wormhole for your coffee, and Stan’s for those heavy donuts that serve as a meal each, but we urge you to give some of that hard-earned brunch money to explore Uptown’s offerings of delightful food, caffeine, and pastries. You won’t be disappointed.
