Looking for something different to do this week in Chicago? Look no further than the five things listed below, which have all been tested and true by HOLLOW LEG itself!
1. Take afternoon tea at Brindille
Afternoon tea is a staple during the holiday season, and Brindille's is the best. With Chef Carrie Nahabedian at the helm, you'll be delighted with traditional English crumpets, finger sandwiches with seasonal ingredients, and a whole world of pastries that are executed perfectly (the Sacher torte is to die for!). Make it a Royal Tea with a glass of bubbly.
$60/person. Reservations required. More information here.
2. Take in a magic show at Royal George Theatre
Tired of holiday music already? Revamp your spirits with magic! The Rosenkranz Mysteries are running now through December 24 and it's incredible. Ricardo Rosenkranz, a physician at Northwestern, beautifully laces in his story into a magical journey, and the tricks will leave you wanting more. Tix and info here!
Extra boozy bonus? HOLLOW LEG created the custom cocktails for the show, so you can finally have one of our creations outside of the classroom.
3. Get some shopping done at Revolution Craft Show
If you're like us, the majority of holiday shopping is done at small businesses and craft fairs. You can't beat the uniqueness, the quality, and the good feels of helping small businesses! On Sunday 11 December, Revolution Craft Show will be showcasing some of Chicago's finest, along with beer and food!
4. Immerse yourself in the Golden Age of Radio
If you're looking for something different to do, look no further than the Chicago Cultural Center. Most exhibitions and events are free, including this fun and festive recreation of Meet Me in St. Louis performed live on stage!
5. Shop and walk through a winter wonderland during West Town Winterfest
Dying to put those snow boots to work? This Saturday, a bunch of West Town businesses will be open so you can peruse, grab a cuppa, and stroll through snow-laden streets. There's a trolley and an after-party, too! More details here.
Enjoy the week!
