Imagine: kayaking down the Chicago River at sunset, followed by a burger cookout, some craft beer libations, a bonfire, and s’mores.

So, grab your friends, and head to Kayak Chicago for an evening worth remembering. For more information, click here.

So, dress to impress and remember, going to this prom stag is best! For more information, click here.

Beach season is upon us, and we all could use a bit of motivation! So, head to Millennium Park (before your Saturday brunch plans, of course) this summer for free workouts this Saturday! Take your pick from Tai Chi, Yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. For more information, click here.


It may have just been National Doughnut Day, but Time Out isn’t finished celebrating one of our favorite fried pastries yet. This Sunday, Time Out Chicago is hosting the Chicago Donut Party at Park West in Lincoln Park.
