1. Free Museum Days
Escape the freezing temperatures and take advantage of the free museum days this month for Illinois residents. Spend an afternoon with Sue (the T.Rex) at the Field Museum or make your way to the Shedd Aquarium to watch the dolphins.

2. Check out a new restaurant/bar
Blue Door Farm Stand and Celeste are new additions to the dining scene here in Chicago. Head over to Lincoln Park to check out Blue Door Farm Stand for delicious fresh seasonal food and cold pressed juices. If you're in the mood for a cocktail Celeste recently opened in River North with an impressive cocktail menu.
Grab your friends and catch a classic movie at the Drake Hotel's Movie Monday event. The films will be shown biweekly, the second and fourth Monday of every month (check the entertainment page for a full schedule). Admission is free and complimentary popcorn will be served.
4. Band of Horses
If you're in the mood for a concert this month head over to the Vic to see Band of Horses perform a special acoustic set. If you haven't listened to Band of Horses you're missing out (catch up on Spotify).
5. Take a class
Try something new this month and take a class through Dabble. I'm looking to cross off something from my 101 in 1001 list by taking a Calligraphy class.
