Nothing says summer like a free ice cream cone on a hot summer day.
Hotel Lincoln (1816 N. Clark St) is celebrating the first official day of summer with free ice cream. The family-friendly event will feature neighborhood favorite Bobtail Ice Cream from 10 a.m. to noon. The hotel will be blocking off a portion of the sidewalk out front for a chalk art contest with prizes for participants (fun!). Stop by for some ice cream and then head over to the Lincoln Park Zoo's Nature Boardwalk and the Green City Market. Sounds like a perfect way to kick off your weekend!
