Ughhh, it’s Tuesday. We know, those feelings of boredom are starting to creep up and you’re developing a bit of a mid-week slump. In an effort to add some meaning to your Tuesday, we’ve developed a little guide:
Museum of Contemporary Art | 220 E. Chicago Ave.
First up, make it a goal to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art today, where you can get in for free all summer! Eternal Youth is one of the many MCA exhibitions being held this season. This exhibition encounters the foundation of youth and reveal its fullness of life dating back to the 1990s. With this, it aims to cover the struggles of the youth culture living in the western world projecting fear and desire among the younger generations causing a response to social, cultural, and political shifts such as HIV awareness and gender bending transition. “This exhibition examines the different ways youth is portrayed- as simultaneously innocent and desirous- revealing the treatment of young bodies as sexualized, radical, and medicated objects” — Museum of Contemporary Arts Chicago
Chicago Electric Boat Company | 300 N. State Street, Marina Level
Tuesday’s not looking too bad – the fun is just getting started! Grab some buddies and your favorite summer brew and head over to the Chicago Electric Boat Company to save 50% on all Tuesday summer boat rentals with promo code TUESDAY50. Be the captain for a day at a fraction of the cost! Mind blowing, right? All cruises are BYOB and boats seat up to 12 passengers. Since you’re saving a little green with the discount, why not opt for their brand new Riverwalk model. That way you have the option to either catch some rays on the back deck or sit in style under the canopy.
10 Pin Bowling Lounge | 330 N. State Street
Once you’re back on dry land, stop by 10 Pin Bowling Lounge for $10 unlimited bowling from 8:30 p.m. to midnight, with purchase of dinner or drinks. 10pin is a combination of the upscale nightlife and the modern bowling experience packed into one. 10pin offers gourmet savory small plates designed to be shared- delivering the traditional aspect of communal bowling. They offer classics with a new twist, like their artisan pizzas, gourmet sliders, and healthy wraps. In addition, they have a fully stocked bar that serves not only classic cocktails, but also speciality drinks- bringing a drastic turn from the average Chicago bowling alley. Consider drinks such as their Coconut Basil Gimlet which features Ciroc Coconut infused with basil and freshly-squeezed in-house sour, or their Smoke and Spice made with mezcal, Reyes chili liqueur, fresh lime, and agave. Thanks to 10pin, the bowling experience in Chicago will never be the same.
See, Tuesday’s don’t have to be so bad! It’s summer in Chicago, that means every day needs to count so this Tuesday do something unforgettable, without emptying your pockets.
