After a long winter it is always refreshing to see new faces in the quad the second it gets over 50 degrees. When spring quarter hits, people are ready to go outside, and I can’t help but to think about all the summer activities Chicago has to offer. Chicago comes alive in the summer and I can’t wait for all the concerts! Whatever type of music you jive with, there will certainly be an outside festival dedicated to it this summer. Check out the link below for your 2014 Chicago summer festival guide. http://www.chicagomag.com/arts-culture/February-2014/2014-Summer-Festival-Guide/
Do you want to ruin your summer bod in style?! After a show make sure to pick up a hot dog. You haven’t lived until you’ve had a Chicago dog in the summertime. You can continue to ruin your diet at Sweet Mandy B’s, Molly’s Cupcakes, or Black Dog Gelato. Oh and check out Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. THIS ISN'T YOUR TYPICAL ICE CREAM JOINT. They have flavors like Wildberry Lavender, Whiskey & Pecans, Banana French Toast and the crazy list goes on and on. Just do it. Unless you’re lactose intolerant.
Have fun in the sun, guys. No need for 7 layers of clothing- SUMMER IS HERE!
