This Week in CHI: Sept. 8-13

Labor Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean our social calendar has to slow down (or that we’re going to stop wearing white)! Check out what’s going on this week in Chicago.

The most important meal of the day is being celebrated all month long. September is National Breakfast Month and our friends who dine at Kanela from September 7th through September 30th and spend $15 or more will receive a free Julius Meinl coffee. Now that’s a great way to start your week and morning off right! More information here.
