Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 17 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.

Chicago may be a city of industry, of big shoulders, and of windy gusts, but it's also a city of food. Just ask the residents who frame their pasts with memories of dining at iconic restaurants or plot out their futures with reservations at new hotspots. Or better yet, ask the board and committee of Chicago Culinary Museum and Chefs Hall of Fame, a group wholly dedicated to celebrating the city's rich culinary life. Ever since 2005, the group has been recognizing those who've taken Chicago's dining scene to new levels. They do so through an annual Chef's Hall of Fame bash, during which guests can sip drinks and mingle with some of the food industry's brightest stars. Past Hall of Fame inductees include legendary chefs Charlie Trotter, Rick Bayless, and Priscila Satkoff. The 2014 event brings in luminaries such as Stephanie Izard, the James Beard award-winning chef behind Girl & the Goat and Little Goat. The organization operates beyond the annual bash too, by preserving rare kitchen artifacts, cookbooks, and fossilized silverware in a culinary museum.
