Searching for a parking spot can become vexing: the endless driving in circles, doubting whether your car will fit, making sure the spot isn't labeled for clown-size cars only—it can wear a driver down. SpotHero takes the stress out of the search by instantly connecting drivers with private, open parking spots around the city. First, search by city, zipcode, or landmark for a space, then select the date and times you'll need an available slab of concrete. After checking out a few options in the area you're searching, choose the spot you want and it's yours. Best of all, SpotHero makes sure its process has no one to tip, no standing in lines, and no parking meters that deserve to be kicked. Monthly parking is also available. You can reserve from SpotHero's website and print out your reservation, or reserve via your iPhone or Android App for a seamless mobile experience.
State Parking serves the needs of its transiting customers, providing safe stalls for valuable horseless chariots. Drop your ride off at the Clark Street garage while you run errands, or see the sights of Lincoln Park, the Lincoln Park Zoo, or the North Avenue beach. Discerning drivers may also lodge roadsters at the State Parkway location, offering proximity to the bustle of Rush Street, the impressive façade of the John Hancock Center, and the low melting point of the Gold Coast. Both garages are covered and offer 24-hour access, ensuring sedans sneaking out for a midnight skinny dip in Lake Michigan won’t get caught in the cold.
Nevada Ballet Theatre will launch its 39th season on October 15 with its Fall Series tribute to the late Robert Joffrey. This unprecedented performance will feature the combined dance powers of four of the nation's leading companies: Ballet West, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and the Nevada Ballet Theatre. NBT dancers will kick off the evening with fluid, impressionistic movements that passionately recall the beauty of Degas paintings without subjecting the audience to overly talkative art historians with turpentine breath. Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will take the stage to perform the pas de deux from Gnawa, followed by Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's rendition of Jorma Elo's Red Sweet, a hyperkinetic blend of robotics and pirouettes. Danceophiles can also wiggle their feet fingers in anticipation of a special preview performance of Jiri Kylian's joyous Sinfonietta, danced by Ballet West.
