6 Ways to Spend Your Labor Day Off in Chicago
Happy Labor Day! As national law mandates (it does, right?), we're taking it easy today. But while we won't be tied to the computer, we still have to eat. Here are six options around Chicago to spend Labor Day, from a few food tours to how to put together an impromptu picnic. Enjoy the time off, and we'll see you tomorrow.
- The White Sox host the Twins tonight at 6:10 p.m. While I scored a decent sandwich last time, the options around U.S. Cellular Field are even better. The Cubs are in D.C., which might actually be the perfect time to check out the options around Wrigley Field.
- This is also the perfect excuse to lunch in one of Chicago's many great parks. Here's our list of where to shop for an impromptu picnic in the city.
- Stuck on Navy Pier with the family? While the immediate options are slim, there are a surprising number of great options nearby.
- Looking for a food tour to take up your time? It's not the prettiest stretch, but Western Avenue in Bucktown offers a consolidated review of some of Chicago's best cheap food.
- Want to find out where chefs actually like to eat? Check out these neighborhood guides: Kevin Hickey's Bridgeport, Heather Terhune's Lincoln Square, Carrie Nahabedian's Streeterville and Gold Coast, Justin Large's West Loop, and Phil Rubino's Wrigleyville.
- Of course, why not just spend a last long afternoon on one of our favorite outdoor patios?
