Around Town: Summer Isn’t Over Just Yet


Summer isn’t quite over yet, which means we still have some fun to plan leading in to the long Labor Day weekend in a few weeks.

Now, what exactly goes in to planning for a celebratory, end of summer weekend? Great food, drinks and patriotic outfits, of course! A great go-to destination in the Los Angeles area for all of these and more is Hollywood & Highland, a shopping and entertaining complex in the Hollywood District. From playing games at Dave & Busters to enjoying delicious pizzas and cocktails at CPK or ending the night with an original churro at Street Churros, there is a full day to be had the center.

However, if you're closer to Chicago, make sure to check out Block 37 for stores like Anthropologie, Akira and Clark Street Sports for an end of summer outfit refresh. While you're there, make sure to pick up a selection of cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery or stop in to Latinicity for a quick lunch. No matter where you go, remember to enjoy the celebration because summer isn’t over yet!
