The sun's shining, we're wearing shorts and our boss finally gave us summer Fridays. This month we used our bonus time to find free, casual and out-of-the-box ways to get our culture fix around town. 

We can't believe we've been taking selfies by the Bean for a decade. Celebrate Millennium Park's birthday by going to see Jaume Plensa's giant head sculptures.
