April Showers Bring May Flowers

May 1, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
Okay, okay, I know the title of this post is cliché but every year I pray it rings true.  Thankfully, things are looking good on this beautiful first day of sunny May!  Although I am pretty much gone every single weekend this month for weddings, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of things that I hope to do outside before May’s end.  This is the month in Chicago that people stop hermit-ing up in their apartments and start running along the shore of North Avenue Beach.  Definitely one of my favorite seasons, I can’t wait to take advantage of our lovely city.

MAY’S MUST DOs
1. Eat dinner at one of the many restaurants with outdoor patios. Such as (the new) Howells and Hood, Bridge House Tavern (which is on the river), and/or Quartino’s (which is an oldie but a goodie!)
2. Head to the outdoor Green City Market in Lincoln Park on a Wednesday or Saturday this month! May 4th is opening day.
3. Spend a night at the beer garden roof top at Rock Bottom Brewery, overlooking the awesome Chicago views.4. Take a Barre Bee Fit class on the roof of Hotel Palamar (which begins on May 22nd at 6:30 am every Wednesday)5. Enjoy a day at the free Millenium Art Festival, which begins on May 31st in Streeterville and is always a blast!


So there you have it. Time to enjoy all that’s to offer during this beautiful month in Chicago!
I’ve already started, since as I’m writing this I’m sitting on my balcony listening to the birds chirping and singing, dogs barking and playing, and kids voices trailing…
and now it’s time for me to go run along the beach!

What could be better?

PS What are your must-dos for this month?
