Where To Have Your Birthday Outside

Where To Have Your Birthday Outside

Original Article: "Where To Have Your Birthday Outside"

When you were a kid and your birthday was in the summer, it was bittersweet. Sure, you could have a pool party, but you were probably one of the youngest in your class, and you never got a special birthday treat at school, like a cupcake or a pinata full of stale bubble gum (everyone knows half-birthday celebrations are a lame consolation prize).

But you’re an adult now, and you no longer need to rely on others to procure celebratory baked goods or expired candy. Plus, you get to celebrate your birthday during the best time of the year in Chicago. Do so at one of these places.

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba has been around since 1985, and it’s a Lincoln Park neighborhood staple for a reason – this Spanish spot has great tapas, like chorizo-wrapped dates and chicken empanadas. When it’s warm outside, you and your friends want to be out on the patio drinking sangria. Don’t think your birthday meal has to be a dinner, either – come for brunch to get things like mini pancakes.
