Have I mentioned that summers in Chicago are the best? ‘Cause they are!
Last week, I went to the Museum of Contemporary Art for Tuesdays on the Terrace, a free event with admission to the exhibits and the back garden, where a jazz band entertained and people enjoyed fresh grilled food and drinks. I lounged on a blanket with my friends Chika and Linda, enjoying the outside ambiance.
The museum is right by Lake Michigan and Chika walked me to the lakefront trail at the end of the evening. Coco is a bit too big for her, but I think they make a lovely pair.
I enjoyed my bike ride home in the evening, totally content. Bicycling with the fresh air and sunset and skyline is the best way to end a Tuesday. Certainly better than a usual mid-week bike commute.
I plan to go to as many Tuesdays on the Terrace events as possible this summer. After all, the event is free! ;) No reason not to take advantage of all the culture Chicago offers.
