Fight For Air Climb Chicago

555 W Madison St, Chicago, IL 60661 312-441-0836

Description: Perhaps your New Year's resolution to lose the aftermath of the holiday sweets has failed you. If that's the case or even if you're one of those year round health nuts, Climb Chicago is an event for everyone. Climbing the stairs of a skyscraper may sound like a nutty idea, but believe it or not, the average time for 45 flights of stairs is just twelve minutes! This kind of work-out time sounds like an infomercial claim but, the best part about the climb is that it benefits the American Lung Association of Illinois. Now occurring in major cities throughout the US, Chicago's Presidential Towers are by far, the coolest location.

Tuesdays on the Terrace

220 E Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60611 312-397-4010

Description: Each summer, the MCA takes full advantage of Chicago's balmy weather and its own beautiful sculpture garden.

Too snooty for the buffet? Pas de probleme: Pick up food from outdoor grill to have a picnic within the garden itself. Some of the city's best jazz is performed live, completing the ambiance. Local radio personalities keep the music flowing.
