Summer is already gone and before you know it, it’ll be a new year. So, make some time to enjoy this fall and fill your time with friends and fun events. Here’s what is going on this week in Chicago!
Scavenger hunts are no longer just a distant memory from summer camp or birthday parties. Now, you can turn Chicago into your board game with the help of Urban Adventure Quest. Get a team of two to five people and gallivant around Chicago learning history and seeing the sites all at once. Find more information here.
Fall is upon us so we encourage everyone to enjoy outings on the lake as much as possible until it gets too chilly. Mystic Blue is here to help you do just that. Tuesday Night Happy Hours on the water will be happening from now until October 20th. So, grab a ticket and some co-workers and enjoy an evening on the water. Find out more information here.
Happy hour is coming back to Chicago and we are so excited! If you find yourself in the West Loop, consider going to Porkchop for their Wednesday happy hour. From 4p.m.- 6p.m. you can get $5 wells drinks, half off apps and $4 draft beers. Porkchop also has an extensive menu for dinner so if you find yourself there later than 6 p.m. you won’t be disappointed! More information can be found here.
We are always up for a good laugh, and when it nears the end of the week, it is necessary. John Hodgman, known for his work on The Daily Show is performing at Thalia Hall in Pilsen here in Chicago. More information on how to get tickets can be found here.
This Friday, right in time for the weekend, a new restaurant is opening up in the South Loop. Café Press and Sociale is a small plates restaurant with an adjoining farmhouse coffee shop. If you find yourself here, let us know how it is, and let’s hope they do brunch soon (hint, hint). More information here.
Free alcohol and live music sound like great reasons to go out, but it feels even better when the event benefits the community. A global music licensing agency, Music Dealers, is partnering with up and coming artists, The Ivorys, SABA, Mike Golden & Friends and DJs, to raise money for a local charity, Deborah’s Place. You will receive free admission into the event with a donation of one non-perishable item for Deborah’s Place. More information can be found here.
Good vintage never goes out of style so stop by the Randolph Street Market and nab some new digs before it gets too cold to want to go outside. Over 200 vendors display vintage clothing, accessories, furniture and more. Find out more information here.
