Last weekend of the summer– get outside and explore Chicago

You turn around and it’s already Labor Day. Seven months ago today we were buried under almost three feet of snow. Translation: in a few short months we will again be buried under snow.

Take the afternoon off. Take the day off and get outside. I had the opportunity to hang out downtown yesterday and had a lot of fun. I got outside and stayed outside. I had lunch at Millennium Park’s Park Grill (outdoors) with Lee, a bartender there. I listened to music at Pritzker Pavilion. I saw kids screaming in Crown Fountain. I walked Michigan Avenue. I took pictures of Trump Tower and shopped for tourist trinkets. Our city is quite impressive when you have an opportunity to stop, watch and listen to it breathe.

I understand, the couch is comfortable; but it will be just as comfortable in five months when there is a foot of snow on the ground and its 20 degrees. Get outside; enjoy Chicago and our last weekend of summer
