I realized just today that August is the only month this summer that I’m spending exclusively at home.  In June, I went to Michigan, last month we honeymooned in Idaho, and finally, I am comfortable at home. I’ve been catching up on quality time with my friends and family, golfing, and grilling. 

Things to do in Chicago

  • Through August 20th: Dunder Mifflin Pop-Up at Replay Lincoln Park.  If you love the Office, and are super annoyed that you didn’t get a spot in their “The Office” themed trivia nights, might as well go check out The Dundies.
  • Are you a fan of theatre?  On Tuesday August 21st, from 5:30-7:30pm at Le Colonial, enjoy 20% off drink tabs while 100% of all tips go to supporting Steppenwolf Associates.  Rsvp to TT@boldfacechicago.com.

Things to do in DuPage County

  • Did you know that Friday, August 31st is National Cabernet Day?  You know I am kind of particular about my wine, but I also am very into anything novelty, and Perry’s Steakhouse in Oakbrook has a one-day-only deal on magnum bottles for the occasion. Normally priced at $155, for only $99, you can purchase a magnum of Perry’s Reserve Cabernet to enjoy with your meal. Call (630) 571-1808 to reserve your table.
  • Polo, anyone? The Oak Brook Polo Grounds host the Chicago Polo Open Championship: Horses and Hops event on Sunday, August 19th, 2018.  It’s being billed as one of the first to bring local breweries to the traditionally champagne paired event. Tickets range from $10-$85.
