An evening with the Orchestra

With summer slipping away, let’s squeeze in another great outdoor activity this wonderful city has to offer…and it’s free to boot!  Grab your picnic basket and blanket and head over to the Jay Pritzker Pavilion for an evening with the Orchestra.  http://grantparkmusicfestival.com/ .  (There are shows coming up this weekend, the 10th and 11th, and next weekend, too.)

 

You can start your date off on the right foot by picking up a great picnic spread at Pastoral, (http://www.pastoralartisan.com/) just a few blocks outside of the park.  On your way in, be sure to stop by the Bean for a fun picture or two and maybe even a pre-show cocktail at the Millennium Park Outdoor Grill. (http://www.parkgrillchicago.com/millennium-park).  Then, head in to the park, spread out your blanket, get comfortable and listen to some of the best music in the world.  There’s nothing like sitting in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city and finding complete serenity.  Enjoy!
