“If it’s hidden, then I suppose I’ll have to keep it under wraps. That being said, the brunch at Gather is phenomenal — highly recommend their hash or lox plate.”
This place offers some great dishes and a variety of wines and microbrews (from https://www.gatherchicago.com/).

“Wednesday fireworks in the summer – you can see them from Oak Street beach and the river walk. You don’t have to go downtown. Also Annette’s in Lincoln Park, its an ice cream place on Armitage that has been around since the mid 80s. Incredible classic place where you can sit outside on a beautiful summer night.”
Annette’s has some delicious frozen treats from ice cream to Italian ice (from https://www.annettesitalianice.com/)

“For me, always the Berlin nightclub – they have these amazing Drag performances that I really enjoy. It just opens the door for new and creative forms of living art.”
A lively nightclub that has some of the best Drag shows in town (from https://www.berlinchicago.com/index.html)

“Think of it as SNL with a local flair and more heart. It’s one of the most unique live events in the city, combining comedy storytelling, puppetry, music, political commentary, music, and prose from talented locals and well known performers from across the country. I always leave entertained, educated, and with an appreciation for the world around me.”
Suggested by ChiTribe’s own Scott Prywitch.
This antiques/collectibles shop has some unusual finds with a “whimsical” twist (from https://www.woollymammothchicago.com).
