7 Things Chicagoans Are Doing Right Now
What, you haven’t seen the Charles Ray exhibit yet?
Summer should feel spontaneous. And if you’re the type of in-the-know Chicagoan who totally randomly finds yourself packing your weekends and summer Fridays with the kinds of discoveries other people only wish they knew about, here are seven things you’re probably doing right now:
Wearing Chicago-Themed Shoes
Not up for braving the Lollapalooza crowds this year? You can still sport our favorite piece of fest-inspired apparel: these groovy Chicago-skyline shoes from Bucketfeet. ($78)
1647 N. Damen Ave.; 773-904-8709 or bucketfeet.com
Upping Your Picnic Game
You don’t want to take on the lawn warriors at Ravinia unless you’re willing to bust out Grandma’s lace tablecloth and plenty of taper candles, but it’s worth a shot--if your spread impresses on August 8, you could win season passes for next year. Test-drive your setup on July 25 at Grant Park, where the grand prize is a $100 Macy’s gift card.
