Five on Friday – Things to do around Chicago this Spring

1. Chicago Beer Classic

Grab a group of friends and head to Soldier Field on May 6th.  The pours are generous and the pretzel necklaces are a nice touch. This event is a great opportunity to try some new local brews while hanging out at Soldier Field. Tip: Arrive early because the beers do run out toward the end.

2. The Social Table

The Social Table concept located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood is much more than your average cooking class. It’s dinner party hosted by a chef where you create and share a meal with a group of 10. You are able to choose a menu beforehand (they send you the delish recipes after, too) and bring your own wine or beer of choice. They also have the option of renting the space for parties and small events. It encompasses everything I need for a perfect night! Tip: Sign up for The Social Table email list, and receive alerts when new menus are posted, the dates fill up quickly!

3. Hamilton

This musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton is showing at PrivateBank Theatre until January 2018.  I have yet to attend, but have heard only positive things! This performance is definitely a splurge, but I’m hoping to score tickets last minute at some point.

4. Paint Nite

This is definitely on my list to do for a fun date night.  I know Dan would be on board for a creative date night if it takes place at a fun spot like Glasscott’s or Pork and Mindy’s. Channel my inner artist?

5. Eric Church

Holdin’ My Own tour is coming to the All State Arena on April 13th. I love Eric Church and it would be a great kick off to country concerts 2017!


What are you most looking forward to this spring in Chicago?
