Your Weekend Guide

Happy Fri-Yay Boss Babes!


If your week was anything like mine then I'm sure you're all anxious to get the weekend started. Right? Cross your finger, this gloomy weather will go away! Nonetheless, it's been said that Chicago will be moving toward Phase 4 of reopening! Now, for those of you who have no clue what that means, here's a few things to look forward to:


  • Meetings and Events can resume with either 50ppl or less OR 50% of the overall room capacity

  • Indoor dining will resume with groups of 10 or less with the required 6FT table spacing

  • Reopening of museums and zoos (At 25% occupancy and with certain rides/exhibits closed) and movie theaters (at 50% of overall capacity)

  • Reopening of gyms and recreational centers (So after you indulge in all the fun this weekend, head to the gym to sweat it off! lol)


So if you're planning on heading into the city to get a piece of the action or trying to make the most of your weekend, here is your official Weekend Rooftop/Patio Guide.

IF THERE'S ONE THING ALL CHICAGOANS LOVE, IT'S DEFINITELY PATIO/ROOFTOP WEATHER! WHEN ITS COLD, ITS COLD! SO WE APPRECIATE THE SUN AND NICER DAYS- NOT TO MUCH WE'VE BEEN SHELTERED IN PLACE FOR 3 MONTHS. GO OUT AND GET YOU SOME FRESH AIR- YOU DESERVE THAT! BUT, MAKE SURE YOU'RE STAYING SAFE. & IN CASE YOU'VE GOTTEN TOO COMFORTABLE AND HAVE FORGOTTEN THE RULES, HERE'S SOME REMINDERS.


  1. WEAR A MASK....BECAUSE, IT'S KINDA THE LAW NOW.

  2. WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE AND AFTER EATING, COUGHING/SNEEZING, TOUCHING DOOR HANDLES....JUST KEEP WASHING YOUR HANDS.

  3. TRY YOUR BEST TO KEEP YOUR DISTANCE...6FT TO. BE EXACT.

NOW IF YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILY HAVE DECIDED TO NOT KEEP SO MUCH OF A DISTANCE, THATS FINE. JUST MAKE SURE YOU'RE RESPECTING THE BOUNDARIES OF OTHERS. PEOPLE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU'RE TOO CLOSE....BY PEOPLE, I MEAN ME. I WILL GLADLY TELL YOU- OR SHOW YOU WHERE YOU SHOULD BE STANDING (LOL)

4. LAST BUT DEFINITELY NOT THE LEAST- IF YOU'RE FEELING SICK- STAY HOME! ITS LITERALLY, NOT THAT SEROUS. FOMO ISN'T A THING ANYMORE


ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND EVERYONE! LET ME KNOW IF YOU'VE DECIDED TO VISIT ANY OF THESE PLACES!
