Happy February, everyone!
We're celebrating this month with outdoor adventures, theatrics and cultural outings. It's your chance this weekend to see snow sculptures (even if we haven't been able to build any of our own), catch top-notch theatrical entertainment, get your hands on some chocolate and open your eyes to a powerful new exhibit shining a light on America's past.
Through February 3
Lake Geneva, Wisc.
We know—this hasn't been the best winter season for building your own snow people. So don't miss this chance to see some pretty incredible snow structures—the U.S. Nationals Snow Sculpting Competition is just part of the fun surrounding Geneva Lake this weekend.
February 1 & 2
Chicago Symphony Orchestra, 220 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago
It doesn't get much bigger than John Malkovich when it comes to an epic theater experience in the city. Part monologue, part symphony, all shrewd entertainment—but definitely one just for the adults.
February 2 & 3
Morton Arboretum, Lisle
It's where to go for the good stuff—a two-day fest all about February's flavor—chocolate. Sample a few, test your candy bar taste buds and stock up for the season. Family friendly fun!
February 1 - 10
Josephine Louis Theatre, 20 Arts Circle Dr., Evanston
Barbara Ehrenreich's bestseller comes to stage in Evanston this weekend—a theatrical telling of what it's like to live and work on the lowest end of the pay scale here in America.
Opens February 3
Illinois Holocaust Museum, 9603 Woods Dr., Skokie
Instead of reading about our nation's history, experience it—visit the Illinois Holocaust Museum for this moving exhibit highlighting our nation's segregationist past and the courage of those who stood up to fight against it.
