To truly understand what makes Lori's Shoes so special, it helps to take a walk in founder Lori Andre's shoes. That exchange of footwear would send you across the globe?from the biggest fashion houses of New York City to a small boot manufacturer in Florence. Every year, Andre travels to markets in America's biggest cities before she hops a plane to Europe and spends two to three weeks searching the storefronts of France, Italy, and the exclusive, secret VIP country located between France and Italy.
Andre's obsession with fashion has taken Lori's Shoes from a small Lincoln Park storefront in 1983 to a modern empire that includes three stores in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Each one contains an impressive bounty totaling thousands of women's shoes, boots, bags, and garments. The items' tags read like a who's who of the design world?Jeffrey Campbell, Frye, and Sam Edelman are just a few choice picks from the 200-plus names that fill the stores' shelves and tables. Sales staff keep a handle on it all: "its staffers are well-versed in current trends," noted Racked in placing Lori's on its list of The 38 Essential Chicago Shopping Experiences.
From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon a frosty foundation of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirls idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal a surprise filling of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.
Fruit rules the roost on the other side of the slushy emporium, where Orange Julius blends its signature frothy drinks crafted from fruit juice, ice, and a "magic? powdered sweetener that explains why they disappear from most customers? cups minutes after the first delicious sip. Real fruit pur?e forms the basis for the shop's smoothies, which also come in diet-friendly light versions that boast 150 calories or fewer.
In 1904, workers transformed a grassy field northwest of Chicago into a landscaped, tree-sheltered concert venue. That venue endured, becoming one of Chicago's favorite summer concert spots. The Pavilion's picturesque garden and stage serve as the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well the stage for jazz luminaries, classical icons, and pop stars from around the world. Families can occupy a cluster of the Pavilion's 3,400 seats, or conduct picnics on the well-manicured lawn, catching every sound through the park's stunning sound system. Located within walking distance of the The Pavilion, The Martin Theatre, a restored recital hall from 1904, and Bennett Gordon Hall, a facility that showcases rising stars, also promulgate music appreciation. Beyond performance, Ravinia also conducts educational outreach programs to foster an interest in music. They take a three-step approach, named "Reach, Teach, Play," to mint new musicians. After welcoming young folks to performances, teachers elucidate the origins of that music and musical theory, and, ultimately, encourage students to pick up an instrument and learn to play.
Upon a marbled wall, a Japanese triptych mural tells the story of a gargantuan fish licked by cerulean waves and a tiny boat tossed about in its wake. Even though this vibrant piece reflects a chaotic scene, the sushi bar where the owner and head chef crafts creative rolls and maki is anything but—he’s a seasoned artist with more than 15 years' experience slicing, dicing, and coiling. He carefully furls Alaskan king crab, shrimp tempura, and sweet chili sauce and creates tantalizing nigiri and sashimi with freshly carved squid and freshwater eel. Bartenders, meanwhile, pour wines and sakes to complement the chef's mouthwatering Japanese cuisine.
Sunlight pours through ground-to-ceiling windows, streaming across hardwood floors and dark wooden tables that friendly servers speckle with dishes of aromatic steak teriyaki and tempura udon soup. Diners can enjoy these exotic feasts amid the contemporary yet casual dining room’s traditional folding screens and bamboo accents or, when the extraterrestrial overlords who control the weather permit it, outside on the patio.
While conventional medical practices can nullify the physical symptoms of a variety of ailments, they oftentimes overlook the interconnectivity of one's physical, mental, and spiritual states. With this in mind, North Suburban Wellness's staff takes an integrative approach to medicine—creating personalized treatments that aim to achieve optimal vitality and wellness by incorporating a number of health methodologies. With chiropractic and nutritional medicine, the doctor boosts metabolism levels and addresses discomfort caused by conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome as the massage therapist relaxes muscles tense from hours of trying to keep one's skeleton from running away. For mental relaxation, the yoga instructor, who has been practicing for nearly 30 years, helps patients tend to worries with calming, methodical movements. Clinical psychology and biofeedback, kinesiotherapy, and Chinese-medicine specialists also lend their talents to the medical team to truly care for patients both inside and out.
