    The Paul B Moses exhibit which runs fall 2022 is an awesome experience that shows the work of a pioneer in African American art.

    I attended a performance of the Chicago Jazz Orchestra in a tribute to Charles Mingus in the theater at the Institute. The upstairs theater was intimate, modern and clean. The bathrooms were also cleaner than local businesses and museums nearby. The upstairs windows give a lovely night view of the park. The architecture feels unique and protective of the inner layers of the building. This event did not offer concessions, but the lobby does have a permanent service area. As we walked around outside the theater, I enjoyed the exhibits. The curatorial staff, in fact all of their staff, appear to do a great job. I will go back for programs or events in this nice space.

    Was invited by some business associates to get in to a wine and food tasting prepared by the students and staff. The upcoming chefs did a great job in preparing their meals. It was elegant and well-thought out. Though my dates could be wrong, I was not sure what month but it was this past summer that I attended.

    I have been to this restaurant twice. Once with friends and once with my family on a vacation. Both times I was equally impressed. Casual upscale dining. The food is classic American with a gourmet flare. For the quality of food and presentation, the menu is very diverse and very fairly priced. The owners are always around and very friendly. The last time we ate there we had our 4 kids with us (9, 7 and 5 at the time) and it went very well. The owners told us they have a child and they have a ridiculously inexpensive children's menu to accomodate kids. It is probably my favorite restaurant in Chicago. The only drawback for me is I usually stay downtown and it is a bit of trek to the trendy area it is located in but don't let that stop you from finding this Chicago gem.

    Everyone was very nice! All exhibits/studies were voluntary! Learned something new about how my brain works.

    If you are a magician, you need to visit this shop at least once during your lifetime. You never know what famous performer you are likely to run into.
