Grant Park Orchestra

Last Wednesday, before biking home in the dusk, I spent the evening with my friend Sara, enjoying a free performance by the Grant Park Orchestra in Chicago’s gorgeous Pritzker Pavilion.  The performance was part of a summer-long Grant Park Music Festival.

I try to go once a week; everyone in Chicago should try to go at least once a season.  The music and scenery are beautiful, and you’re allowed to bring a picnic complete with wine.

Best of all, once the concert is over, I get to bike off into the beautiful sunset.
I’ve written about these concerts a few times before.
Happy Official Summer!  :-)

Neighborhood Biking in Nashville

The weekend before Labor Day (wow, am I ever behind on blog posts!) was the second installment of this year’s 12South Concert series. Held in Nashville’s Sevier Park, these free concerts are open to everyone (and their dog—literally!), so I packed a picnic and went to check it out by bike with my friend Chiara, who’s always game for a bicycle outing.

The next 12South Concert is tonight—it’s definitely worth checking out.
