Weekend Whereabouts: January 27 – 29
As the winter months drone-on with seemingly little relief, we take comfort in knowing that the wide array of weekend activities in Chicago provides some excitement and warmth to the ever-lingering cold. There are enough shows to see, concerts to attend and sports teams to cheer to distract us from the fact that our cars doors are frozen shut and even our pets are reluctant to go outdoors. CUI has scoured the city and identified a variety of activities for this weekend that are sure to combat the winter blues.
Batsheva Dance Company is the premiere dance company hailing all the way from Israel. Artistic Director Ohad Naharin remains one of the most influential and preeminent choreographers of this century. Naharin is the originator of the movement language, Gaga, which has revolutionized the movement vocabulary of dancers and companies across the world. Batsheva will be presenting their evening-length work entitled Last Work at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance this Friday and Saturday evening. Don’t miss the opportunity to see one of the most celebrated and unique companies of our time.
The American pop band, Twenty One Pilots, will be in Chicago this weekend as a part of their Emotional Roadshow World Tour 2017. The duo quickly rose to fame in the mid 2010’s and has been on a collision course of success ever since. They’re only in Chicago for one night!
Just in time for restaurant week, Boleo is launching its very own Fernet inspired by the South American flavors of the restaurant’s cuisine. The private dining room will be transformed into a tasting room featuring live music and food and drink specials. The event is open to the public and free to attend. If you’re interested in making a night of it, contact your CUI Concierge for preferred rates at the Kimpton Gray Hotel.
