Official Opinions: Seasons Change and So Does Chicago

So here’s the situation. It’s fall and a beautiful weekend is coming up. Unfortunately, you have nothing planned. This is where Stitely Entertainment comes in to help. After reading through this entry you’ll wake up this Saturday morning and instead of thinking, “Man, I’ve got absolutely nothing put together for today…” you’ll say, “WOW! I’ve got a great day ahead of me because Taylor, Stitely’s marketing intern, took a lot of time to plan it out!”

One of the things I love about Chicago is that the city changes with the seasons. The events, the restaurants, even Chicago Cubs fans’ postseason expectations all seem to assimilate with the season. It’s great. With fall being in full swing, I’ve decided to put together a fun Saturday afternoon that anyone can enjoy whether they’re a tourist or a born-and-raised Chicagoan.

I’m going to assume that not everyone is a morning person, and that’s why my grand scheme begins at lunchtime. Start off your day at Buffalo Wild Wings (2464 N Lincoln Ave) off of the Fullerton L stop. It’s a great chance for you to enjoy some great wings and catch some excellent Big Ten football match ups in Ohio State v. Indiana, Illinois v Penn State, Wisconsin v Minnesota and Iowa v Michigan. After lunch, head over to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The walk is a great way to burn off maybe two of those wings, and enjoy what is probably one of the last warm days we’ll have for the next six months. For those with an interest in photography, there is an “Autumn Animal Photography” event from 1-4pm at the zoo.

Once you’ve finished taking more pictures of giraffes than any person ever should, take a stroll to the L and get off at the Chicago (red line) stop to grab dinner at the Soupbox on Chicago Ave. Nothing says comfort food like hearty beef stew on a cool fall day. If beef stew’s not your thing, they’ve got 11 other gourmet soups for you to try as well as a delicious salad bar. The great thing about the Soupbox is that it’s not much more than a block away from the Hancock Center. One thing people overlook in the fall is the opportunity to see Chicago’s foliage change colors while atop the Hancock Observatory. It’s an absolutely stunning view of Chicago in its full, Autumnal glory.

Take the opportunity to close out your evening with the Chicago Country Music Festival at Millennium Park. It’s a free event and you’ll get the chance to see Jewel perform at 7:30. After the concert, call it a night. You’ll have had a fantastic day and don’t need anything else to do. Besides, I’ve planned out enough for you already, haven’t I? Anyways, my hope is that this post will help you have a most excellent Saturday. If it doesn’t, I can’t say that I didn’t try. Enjoy the weekend.
