|About the Book|
For both native and new Chicagoans, this lively guide shows how to get out of the house, meet new people, see the sights, and explore hobbies and volunteer opportunities. Taking dance lessons might be one idea, and here are the details and contact information for Latin Street Dancing and the Joel Hall Dance Center, where lessons are offered for salsa, belly dancing, tap, and hip-hop. An interest in food and cooking might lead a reader to Sur La Table, which offers classes such as Sushi for Beginners and Single Gal Cooking. Also described are cultural attractions, sports organizations, and volunteer opportunities. For more dating, socializing, and networking ideas, Chicago Sport and Social Club, Chicago Social Monster, Lincoln Park Young Professionals, and Big Ten Chicago are recommended for their events such as wine tastings, restaurant openings, concerts, and parties throughout the year. This wide-ranging guide provides detailed descriptions of each organization along with contact information and a guarantee for fun in the Windy City.
