The lake is beautiful and the parks are green. Here’s a few of my favorite things to do to soak up the beautiful Chicago summer.   You want a little west coast in the midwest: North Avenue Beach You want a fun workout to do with…

Welcome back to Meehandering the 312, Brunch Edition. This is definitely the most difficult post I’ve done in this series because there’s seriously so many places to get brunch in Chicago.
