I am planning a gals (cousins) weekend April 4-6. The plan is to stay at the Seneca Hotel - it's one of the few in our price range. One cousin is originally from here, but has been in the Detroit area for many years. The other two grew up here, live in the suburbs now. So Chicago isn't new to any of us. All that being said, any suggestions for things to do? We would probably like shopping, dining, a quiet cocktail place. Museums if there are special exhibits that weekend. But I'm also looking for different things - like a cooking class, or a tour of something off the beaten path, or theater. Where can I go to an events calendar that would give me that info?
Thanks in advance for any help.
