Taste of TLT - June 6, 2011
Today's the day! It's 6/6, so that means we're hittin' the road. Over the next fifteen days Theresa and I will be driving Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica and back and we'll be documenting the entire trip on our website at route66.thelocaltourist.com. Don't worry that you'll miss out on your daily Taste, though, because we've got 'em ready to go for the whole time we're gone. We'd love it if you came to see us off this morning. We'll be at Jackson and Michigan in a shiny Chevy Camaro Convertible at 9:30, ready to take on this epic journey.
Even though we'll be gone, life in Chicago does go on and here's what's happening.
Today through Thursday the Museum of Science & Industry is free. That museum has so much to offer you might just need all four days. TLT favorites are the U505 and the Storms exhibits. The Adler Planetarium is also free this week, and it's even free on Friday.
Loyola's farmers market is now open, and this one's a little later in the day so you don't have to be an early bird. The market doesn't open until 3:30 and you can shop until 6pm.
Today's Taste of TLT is brought to you by AlphaBeer! Get to know your A-Beer-C's at the only event that invites you to sample a craft brew for every letter of the alphabet. Tickets on sale now at bit.ly/tltabv
The Publican is getting its own custom brew from Lagunitas, and they're debuting it tonight at a special beer dinner. Brewed with sister spot Big Star, Zephyr is named for the California-to-Chicago train line. Zephyr, eh? Sounds like that would make a good "Z" for AlphaBeer!
It's 6-06-11, and Chicago zip code 60611 thinks it's a perfect day to celebrate its fantastic restaurants and shopping. Since it's home to the Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier, there's quite a lot to brag about. See what all the fuss is at tonight's Taste of 60611 kick off party at River East Art Center.
Have a great day!
Music: The awesome intro and outro music is from Chicago singer/songwriter David Kav
