Subject: Chicago
The web address for the Chicago Reader is I think that another address might have been listed by accident. But for another site, and the one that I use most often, go to This site is run by the Chicago Tribune and is a very good source of info about what's going on in the city at any given time, along with restaurants, music, clubs, movies, etc.

Some ideas for what you ladies can do while your husbands are enjoying the sporting events are:

Museum of Contemporary Art Terra Museum of American Art Field Museum of Natural History Shedd Aquarium Art Institutes

Observation deck on top of the Hancock Building (you can have a drink there as well) Shopping in Water Tower Place and along Michigan Avenue Lincoln Park Zoo (free)

Architecture Tour of Downtown Architechiture Tour via the Chicago River Water bike rides on the Chicago River (weather permitting) Visiting the Historical Society

Depending on the types of activities that you enjoy doing, I can give you some more suggestions if you would like. I am also a *very* big foodie, so I'm up on most of the restaurants and would be happy to give you some suggestions there as well.

Have a great time!
