The licensed educators at Kindermusik help enrich family relationships and bolster kiddies' mental development through interactive, music-focused play dates. Children from newborns to 7-year-olds can investigate the world of sound waves through age-specific sessions of sing-alongs, musical compositions, and sound barrier-breaking drum solos. ACE Music & Me sessions foster reading and language skills through dance and rhyme, and Village classes stimulate cognitive growth through musical activities. Guardians are encouraged to pick up a tambourine and belt out a note alongside their musical wards. After each pressure-free play date, Kindermusik instructors outfit each parent with a number of after-class activities suited to their child's developmental level and ability to impersonate Dick Clark.

The finish line is a blur of color. Every runner and walker that arrives at Active Care ColorBlast 5K's end point looks like he or she just escaped in slow motion from an exploding chalk factory. In addition to sporting this prismatic new fashion statement, they all seem to have smiles on their faces. That's because the event is more of a celebration than a competition?getting as much color as you can takes precedent over getting the best time you can. In fact, lingering at key points along the 5k route is encouraged. It's at these locations, named color stations, that volunteers toss colored powder?which is made from completely natural and biodegradable food-grade cornstarch?towards the participants, turning their white t-shirts into something akin to tie-die. More hues wait at the finish line, where group color throws begin immediately after the race's end. As the vibrant cloud rises above the crowd, it announces a collective victory, not just for each participant but the community as a whole. 100% of proceeds from each Color Blast 5k benefits Clearbrook's programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Annually, the charity supports more than 6,000 individuals as well as their families in 13 counties, in over 160 communities and 50 locations throughout Chicago and the suburbs.

A neighborhood bar is best when it reflects the local culture, which is why it’s no surprise that Harrys’ of Arlington pours brews from a variety of local craft breweries such as Revolution, 5 Rabbit, and Goose Island. A long wooden bar that stretches nearly the length of the room features a dozen tap handles in regimented rows above its polished surface. Those taps spout both macro- and microbrewed beers, which can be obtained on specials that run every day of the week. Cooks complement these libations with an extensive menu of pub grub, including customizable sirloin-patty burgers, sandwiches, and a variety of mac and cheeses spiced up with enticing ingredients. Occasionally, the staff clears the rows of tables and hooks up their sound and light systems to host concerts. For these convivial events, they invite musicians who run the gamut of musical styles, from rock and blues to funk and tribute bands, who play music in lieu of paying taxes.

Ping pong balls ricochet off 10 tables arranged neatly within a 5,000 square-foot dedicated space, only to rise up and meet a whipping paddle that instantaneously reverses their direction, back over the net and across the table. The scene may conjure images of international tournaments, and for good reason: Joola Table Tennis Club, an official table and apparel sponsor of USA Table Tennis, was never bound to take the game lightly. Instead of limiting invitations to championship-caliber players, however, the club also invites mere mortals to take hold of a paddle, line up themselves up at a table, and try their hand at the challenging, fast-paced sport. Novices can enroll in private or group training with a professional, or even rent a robot for concerted stroke repetitions or practice shaking someone's hand. When ready to put their new skills to the test, players can also take on challengers during all-day open play sessions.

Every single night of the week, patrons can find an upbeat sing-along at Big Shot Piano Lounge, whose pianists know more than 1,000 songs in a wide variety of genres. The musicians have played at piano bars throughout Chicagoland for years and are ready to belt out a show tune or a classic or Top 40 song as soon as someone requests it. Upscale American food fuels the revelry, items such as oven-baked shrimp platters drizzled in dijon butter and breadcrumbs and pan-seared chicken topped with swiss. There are also more casual hand foods, including flat-bread pizzas and burgers. And then of course there are the martinis and cocktails, which are as synonymous with a piano lounge as juice boxes full of Tang are with space camp.
