So, when was the last time you explored this amazing city of ours? You know, like really got to know the heart and soul of it? Probably not as often as you'd like. Between balancing a hectic work schedule with your social life, sometimes, downtime is as creative as a boozy brunch or a movie — and that's okay. But if you're looking to switch things up (and learn a little somethin' somethin' in the process), then you're in luck. New York transplant SideTour just launched in Chicago, and, no, you need not be a tourist to be wowed by what you see, taste, and do.
The premise is simple: Simply log on to the SideTour website and choose one — or more — of 11 incredible experiences. Curious? How does a private tasting menu with Carrie Nahabedian (owner of Naha), a night of DJing with Mister Joshua at Paris Club, or a graffiti tour with local street art curator Nick Marzullo sound? Yeah, pretty darn awesome. Oh, and just in time for Halloween, you can discover your innate sense of ESP with a psychic — or maybe even try on some period costumes for kicks.
