Time to enjoy dinner, cocktails, and dessert with the girls at Homestead’s rooftop patio. We suggest you bring a jacket, as this week’s temps aren’t as warm as last weeks. Homestead on the Roof is located at 1924 W. Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622, serving dinner specials only.

The last day to take advantage of Chef Week! Here are some of our favorite participating restaurants: Piccolo Songo, Quartino, Tanta, & Siena Tavern.


Time to rise and shine! Kick off your weekend with a great workout – we are loving the new SoulCycle location in Old Town. After you sweat out all those calories, indulge in a little wine and cheese at the 5th Annual Pastoral Artisan Producer Festival which is held at the Chicago French Market from 11 a.m. to 3 p,m. This is a FREE tasting and meet-the-maker event featuring producers of artisan cheese, bread, beer, wine, charcuterie, confections, and other foodstuffs.

Brunch, of course! Relax with a Sunday brunch at Gather. Try their brioche French toast or their brunch salad which is made with a poached egg, smoked duck, green beans, frisee, brioche crouton, and a red wine vinaigrette. Gather serves brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m and is located 4539 N Lincoln Ave Chicago, IL 60625.
