EC’s Summer in the City
It’s June 21st — the longest day of the year, and the official start to summer. Yas!
At EC, we take our business and our pleasure seriously and we *love* our summer nights and weekends. We did a little team roundup of our favorite spaces and places for summertime hanging.
For a bite:

Hiking and camping! Everyone should check out Rock Cut, Chain O Lakes and Lowden State Park.
I love a good stay-cation – there is so much to do here in the city! Walking tours and boat tours from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, concerts in Millennium Park, the Art Institute, theater.

The Old Town School of Folk Music – an amazing concert series in a fantastic listening room.
Walking in Horner Park, gardening in my yard.
Jumping into the lake off of North Avenue, biking trails – like North Branch, or anywhere near the water!
Free summer activities:
The farmer’s market – I particularly love the Wednesday night market in Andersonville.
In general, you’ll catch us:
Soaking up the sun, throwing a picnic, and making our friends test drive cocktail recipes at our patio BBQ.
