Pritzker Pavilion/Great Lawn
When to do it: Mondays and Thursdays at 6:30pm, June 1st-July 23rd
Here’s the plan: emerge from work on a sunny, 78-degree afternoon, grab a bottle of bubbly, a blanket, and groceries, then head over to a grassy lawn with your crew to watch the sunset and listen to a weekly mix of indie, world, electronic, and rock artists. Oh, this is real life.

Maybe try to take it easy on Fridays (after all, isn't summer in Chicago just one big weekend anyway?) and wake up early, bring a banana and a towel, and enjoy the morning sun with the wakening city by participating in one or all exercise classes led by a rotating cast of local teachers. These energizing sessions are even regularly accompanied by live music. And afterwards? Perhaps you move those newly toned muscles to bike over to The Doughnut Vault... you deserve it.
