CHICAGO | SPRING 2020

By Hanah Vissepo

EAT | Lula Cafe

Lula Cafe is a true gem serving awesome plates for every meal of the day. They focus on local, organic, and in-season ingredients whenever possible. Join them every Monday night for a multi-course Farm Night dinner.

MOVE | Chi50

Hop on the megaformer for a total body workout with the team at Chi50. The perfect compliment for any cardio fan to strengthen and tone muscles you don’t use otherwise.

TAKE CARE | Lapiel Laser Center

Owned and operated by two sisters - this medspa is warm and welcoming while having an extremely knowledgeable team. Whether you’re visiting for facial or a laser treatment - you’ll be in great hands. They also have a great selection of top of the line skin care products after you pamper your skin.

STAY | Field House Jones

Enjoy the sports theme and the great location - a short walk to Chicago’s Magnificent Mile - at Field House Jones. Play various games in the fun communal spaces before winding down in their speakeasy, the Janitor’s Closet, before calling it a night.

WITH DATE | The Art Institute of Chicago

Stroll along the many halls filled with exhibits at the award-winning Art Institute of Chicago. Perfect for those snowy spring days (yes, it does tend to snow in the spring here!) Tip: purchase your tickets online ahead of time, or enter through the Modern Wing (across from Millennium Park) during busy wait times.

WITH KIDS | Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

There are few things more magical than walking into a room filled with hundreds of butterflies. Little ones will love the interactive exhibits while learning more about the natural world.

WORK | Marie Whitney - Founder of Two Penny Blue

Marie Whitney is both kind and fabulous, and a Chicagoan up to great things. Her company, Two Penny Blue, donates school uniforms with each blazer purchase to girls in Africa so they can attend school. Learn more about Two Penny Blue’s mission here.

GROW | Chicago Cultural Center

One of the most beautiful interiors of Chicago is free to visit, hosting two amazing stain glass domes. Inside find free events: music, dance, theater, lectures, and more covering all topics.
