Chicago’s summer sunsets are getting earlier, and the city’s sunrises are creeping later. Yes, it’s hard to believe, but we’re running out of time to take advantage of Chicago’s all-too-brief summer season.
But there is still time! Episode 12 of our ‘”It’s All Good” podcast is here to inspire you to get outside and enjoy all the warm weather has to offer. This week, five of our staffers share what’s on their summer bucket list and what they hope to accomplish before fall.
From trips to the beach or a local brewery, we’ve got a plan for the rest of your summer.
Jamie Nesbitt Golden has an ice cream recommendation she literally dreams about at night: Shawn Michelle’s Homemade Ice Cream in Bronzeville.
Editor-In-Chief Shamus Toomey is a connoisseur of craft brews, but he still wants to make the trek to Metropolitan Brewing.
The Avondale brewery has an outdoor deck and patio along the north branch of the Chicago River.
The episode features an interview with Chicago Cares, a non-profit that will help you find a great volunteer opportunity if you want to give back this summer.
And if you’re still looking for items to add to your summer bucket list after listening to Episode 12, next week’s “It’s All Good” will have more recommendations from reporters and other listeners!
