Around Town: Things to Do in Chicago This Spring

Spring is officially here and it’s time to ditch the parkas! We're seeing longer days sunny weekends. The winter weather can sometimes give Chicago a bad rep, but there is no place like it once the temperature rises and the sun comes out.

It’s time to kick those winter blues to the curb and enjoy the fresh air. Check out some activities that can’t be missed this spring!

Chicago Beer Classic
Saturday, May 6th, $45-55
Located at Soldier Field, this is a beer lover’s paradise. You can sample beers from more than 80 breweries, enjoy the great weather and grab a delicious soft pretzel. 

Bike The Drive
Sunday, May 28th, $50
For one day only, Lake Shore Drive is deserted of all cars and allows riders to enjoy 5 hours of biking. Registration is now open, and all proceeds benefit Active Transportation Alliance. Enjoy the weather, get in a workout and support a great cause. 

Beer Under Glass
Thursday, May 18th, $60
Spring means florals, right? Enjoy the Garfield Park Conservatory’s eight indoor display houses and outdoor gardens while sipping on a cold brew. Beer Under Glass offers over 200 craft beers and for the first time ever are offering food from famous Chicago food trucks. 

When the weather is nice, there is no better place to grab a cocktail in the heart of the Loop. Located on the roof of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, Cindy’s has panoramic views of Millennium Park and the Chicago skyline. It is worth a visit!
