Places We Love

We are very lucky to be getting married over a long weekend, giving more time for family and friends to be together. With many of our guests coming in from out of town, we would love for everyone to make the most of their weekend in this city and enjoy everything it has to offer. We've put together a short list of our favorite places that never disappoint. Hope you love them as much as we do!

Sprinkles Cupcakes
50 E Walton St, Chicago 60611

First and foremost...dessert. Steps from the lake and Michigan Ave., nothing beats a cupcake and a view. If you're too busy to stop in because you're already heading to your next adventure, don't worry, we've tested their cupcake ATM many times and it works perfectly for these situations.

Stan's Donuts
1301 W Lake St, Chicago 60607

Donuts: a pillar in our relationship that we would be lost without. Our suggestion for this shop? "One of everything, please".

*They have multiple locations across the city!

Sweet Maple Cafe
1339 W Taylor St, Chicago 60607

Breakfast! The most important meal of the day. If you have time to come hang out in our neighborhood of Little Italy, be sure to hit our favorite spot. Note: this restaurant is Frank Adrian approved.

Archer & Cermak, 60616

Shopping, food, and plenty of culture. This area has always been one of our favorite date spots. Never a dull moment!

938 W Webster Ave, Chicago 60614

Not your typical Chicago style pizza, but so, SO tasty. Cory would eat this for every meal if possible. A great atmosphere and a great bar, plus endless pizza options...this has been one of our favorites for years.

The Adler Planetarium
1300 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago 60605

Whether you're visiting during the day or late at night, you will never see the skyline like this! One of our favorite (and most memorable) spots to hang out and take a million pictures. They will all be wonderful.

Howl at the Moon
26 W Hubbard St, Chicago 60654

What more do you need besides fruity drinks served in a giant bucket? Dualing pianos, perhaps? This place has them both. Many celebrations and fun nights have been spent at this bar. If you're looking for a good time, we highly recommend this spot!

Lagunitas Brewery
2607 W 17th St, Chicago 60608

Lagunitas, you will always hold a special place in our hearts. An upbeat place with music and plenty of drinks, plus brewery tours, you can find us here any day.

Tin Lizzie
2483 N Clark St, Chicago 60614

A great sports bar to watch a game inside or outside, but most importantly...turtle races. That's right. Bet on your favorite four-legged friend and watch him crawl (slowly) to the finish while you throw back some beers.

Lincoln Park Zoo
2001 N Clark St, Chicago 60614

A top spot on any Chicagoan's list! There is always something new here, plus, the view can't be beat.
