    Happy Father’s Day Weekend!

    We hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend celebrating the dads/father figures in your lives! Last minute shopper? Don’t sweat it! We created a gift guide just in the nick of time:

    For the dad with the green thumb: A trip to the Lincoln Park Conservatory, it’s free and open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Pack a cooler and bring blankets for a picnic on the beautifully manicured grounds right outside the front door. (free)

    For the foodie dad: He’ll love a sampling of small-batch handcrafted syrups by locally owned Jo Snow Syrups. With mouthwatering combinations like Tangerine Lavender Honey and Fig Vanilla Black Pepper, they’ll be a welcome addition to his morning coffee routine. (starts at $11)

    For the grillmaster: Get him a thickly-cut slab of Himalayan sea salt from Sur La Table that adds flavor to food cooked over the grill. Naturally low maintenance, the slab is anti-microbial. To clean just scrub the surface and pat dry. ($35+tax)

    For the dad who loves a little pampering: Treat him to an invigorating Road Warrior Massage at our Asha Spa, an Aveda salon. His fatherly worries will melt away in our relaxing and tranquil spa setting. (starts at $105)

    Maybe we’re a little biased but we enjoyed this CBS Sports article on why the Hawks will win it all.

    Will you be rooting on the Hawks tonight? Cheer along with us on Twitter and Facebook.
