Welcome to March! If you live locally you know February 28th was 60 degrees, and March 1st brought a quasi-blizzard. Yay spring. However this weekend in chicago will provide you with something to do, no matter the weather.
Whiskey Walk: Make good decisions and stumble through 8 different whiskey tasting venues - perfect way to get into the St Patrick's day spirit (which, FYI is not until the 17th)
Visit a Piano Bar: Chicagoist just picked out their top 6 piano bars in the city, and it's nearing the end of cozy piano-bar season if you ask us, so get in some instrumental enjoyment while you can!
2-Hour Comedy Hour @ Gallery Cabaret: If you are one of our loyal readers (we're thinking positively...) you know the Gallery Cabaret is one of the closest bars to Ray's - not to mention one of our favorites. Most nights we go there, we stumble upon a comedy open-mic of some sort - equally cingeworthy and entertaining. Settle in early for a table and stock up on cheap pitchers of beer, you may even catch some live music (Gallery Cabaret however did not make it on Chicagoist's list of best Piano Bars, bummer)
Hopewell Brewing Co: a newly minted brewery withing walking distance of Ray's B&B just opened and focuses on a small 5-beer tap list. Open Saturday 12-12, and Sunday 12-9.
We are nearing the end of our slower winter season, and just installed some fancy new toilets to celebrate! They are truly awesome. Wanna see for yourself? We still have rooms available Friday night (Booked on Saturday) at Ray's B&B
