When dogs need a break from burying bones, chasing mailmen, and playing professional basketball, Go Doggie Home Doggie provides overnight respite in airy single- and double-occupancy cottages. Owners can leave their dogs with all their personal effects from home—such as blankets, beds, and toys—to help them sleep soundly at night. During the day the pet-loving staff takes canines for refreshing walks and supervises their socializing during indoor play sessions, along with showering them with affectionate ear scratches. Meanwhile, at the onsite grooming-and-bathing salon, groomers treat dog care as an art form as revered as that of a cappella howling.

Go Doggie's facilities also include kitty condos—private boarding rooms where cats can sink their claws into scratching posts and philosophize about the virtues of shoeboxes as they gaze through ample windows. The premises are located a frisbee's throw away from O'Hare International Airport to enable speedy pickup and drop-off of furry comrades.

The organizers of Double Denim Bar Crawl have two goals: raise awareness of autism and have fun doing it. Their yearly bar crawls through historic Wrigleyville, which take place during Austism Awareness Month, gather revelers suited up from head to toe in denim jeans, jackets, and shirts to let loose amid raffles, dance-offs, and debates on the cultural degradation caused by khaki. Contests including kiddie-cocktail races and a rock-paper-scissors tournament complement prizes for best and worst double denim, denim princess, and being a HugeParty. Celebrants can feel good about every sudsy libation they imbibe, too, since profits of the crawl go to Young Professional Chicagoland Chapter of Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding autism research, spreading awareness, and advocating for the individuals and families affected by autism.
