It seems like the holidays are here today and gone tomorrow. With so much to do in Chicago, your intentions may have been good but time got in the way. Lucky for us, many of the top attractions have been extended into January.

This relatively quiet week, while many kids are still home for Winter Break, is the perfect time to catch up on some of those events that you may have missed.
