25 Actually Cool Things to Do in Chicago During Quarantine
Never get bored again.
As you know, the coronavirus pandemic has upended every aspect of our daily lives. But while you can’t go outside and enjoy the city’s fine wealth of bars, restaurants, museums, music venues, and theaters for the time being, you can still recreate the experience at home thanks to the magic of Zoom. Many of Chicago’s businesses have quickly adapted to our new reality with a standout slate of at-home experiences from virtual concerts and remote theatre viewings to virtual river cruises and boozy brunches. And don’t worry, there are still plenty of IRL experiences to help you break your cabin fever, such as outdoor mural tours and nature hikes (just make sure to practice social distancing).
Even though you can’t be kicking back at your favorite watering hole right now, you can still drink like you are. Thanks to our seemingly endless quarantine, you can now mix any kind of cocktail from the comfort of your home — from upscale offerings by folks like The Aviary and Violet Hour to more down-to-Earth booze creations such as Big Star margaritas and Twisted Spoke Bloody Marys. You can also go tiki with tropical creations from 3 Dots and a Dash.
