Chicago’s Top Kid-Friendly Attractions

April 30, 2015 12:00 pm

If you've brought the whole family to visit the Windy City, here are a few Chicago attractions that your kids will probably love.

Children’s Garden
Inside of the Morton Arboretum is a children’s garden that offers plenty of ways to learn about science and the natural world. The larger garden contains 10 smaller themed gardens, including the Curiosity Garden and the Windmill Garden. Kids can also splash through streams, adventure through a meadow and under logs, and participate in Children’s Garden programs to get a more hands-on experience.

Shedd Aquarium
Show your children the wonders of the underwater world with a trip to the Shedd Aquarium. This family-friendly attraction is home to animals like penguins, frogs and sea lions, as well as aquatic creatures like tropical fish and large sharks. Exhibits are separated into the Caribbean Reef, Polar Play Zone, and many others.

Lincoln Park Zoo
If your little one is an animal lover, he or she will most likely adore a day spent at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Animals like lions, giraffes, polar bears, and giant snakes roam the grounds in areas that mimic their natural habitats—all from a safe distance from tiny visitors, of course. The zoo is completely free, and the entire facility is family-friendly and tailored to visitors of all ages.

Dig Into Breakfast and Lunch Eats at Brunch, a Restaurant in Chicago’s Near North Side

April 22, 2015 11:01 am

Some restaurants just offer brunch on weekends, but not Brunch, an eatery in Chicago's Near North Side. Here, breakfast and lunch eats are served every day; in fact, that's all you'll find here. Think eggs Benedict, French toast, pancakes, and warm, fresh baked goods, but not just ordinary renditions of these dishes.

The butternut Florentine eggs Benedict comes with butternut squash, pesto hollandaise, and roasted mushrooms. The s'mores French toast will bring back childhood memories of roasted marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers. The pancakes come as a sampler plate, with red velvet, buttermilk, and banana. And rather than full-sized blueberry muffins, Brunch's version is served as seared blueberry muffin tops, brought to your table warm and crispy and topped with lemon creme fraiche. The restaurant also offers a smattering of traditional lunch dishes, such as burgers, wraps, and salads.

Enjoy a mimosa, boody mary, or an organic blueberry bellini to go with your meal. Brunch is a popular spot, especially on weekends, so regulars recommend making a reservation online to avoid a wait.

Happy Hour!

April 21, 2015 5:50 pm

With the Canine Influenza Virus sickening more than 1,300 dogs in the Chicago area, we thought it would be a great idea to partner with a veterinary office for this month’s Happy Hour. Join us this Thursday, April 23rd from 5:30p-7:30p in the Clubroom, for a Q & A session with Dr. Gonsky from West Loop Veterinary Care.

This Happy Hour is, of course, open to everyone to join. Not just Pet Families. We will have wine, beer, and snacks, as usual.

Please leave the furry ones at home.
