Happy hump day! Two great new Mexican Hotspots opened in the city this fall, and we are loving both. Live near Lincoln Park? Check out the new casual Mexican diner The Mexican on North Halsted, and definitely try one of their delicious strawberry-cilantro “mezcalitas,” or even two! Another dish we loved on the menu were the enchiladas—yummy.  Live on the West Side? We are obsessed with the new upscale Mexican spot in Logan Square, Dos Urban Cantina. Opened by two chefs who spent many years working for Rick Bayless, this spot is absolutely fantastic. We loved everything on the menu! The Mexican opens daily at 4 p.m. and Dos Urban Cantina opens at 5 p.m.


It’s the third Thursday of the month so head over to the Adler Museum for the monthly event, Adler After Dark, where they turn the museum into a playground for adults. Perfect for a date night or a girls’ night out, the Adler is always a great time. This month it is Star Wars themed, so may the force be with you! The event goes from 6 p.m. until midnight.

Get in the holiday spirit and start your weekend off by seeing the holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol” at the Goodman Theater. Now in its 38th year, there is no better way to experience Christmas joy than through this Charles Dickens tale. The performance begins at 8 p.m. on Friday. For more information and ticket purchase, click here.

Another way to really get into the holiday spirit is by attending the “Home for the Holidays” festival in downtown Oak Park. Enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides, holiday carols, a performance of “The Grinch,” and indulge at the hot cocoa tent. The event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, click here.


“Wrap” up your holiday shopping at Macy’s and head on up to the Walnut Room on the seventh floor for a memorable holiday brunch. Macy’s is decorated in the most beautiful of holiday fashions, making it the best place to complete your holiday shopping and find something for everyone on your list. You have to do it right, though, and that means treating yourself to brunch at this iconic Chicago restaurant. The Walnut Room serves breakfast every day but hours vary depending on the day.
