Earth Month 2010

April 1 marks the beginning of Earth Month 2010.  We’re celebrating and commemorating the month with art exhibits, hotel packages and more.

Today, the recycled art/sustainable art exhibit was officially set up in our lobby (111 W. Huron in Chicago) , thanks to 360SEE Gallery.

A few more happenings at the Hotel Felix:

-Art Exhibits: Top eco-artists will display their work during the month. Work by Sculptor Brian Mock, Designers Richard Liddel of Cohda, and Bannavis Andrew Sribyatta of Project Import Export will be on display in the lobby throughout the month. Guests can also be one of the firsts to see Allen Christian’s art car design, “Elmer the Art Car.” The brightly-colored car is decked out in reclaimed objects.

-Be Eco, Be Fast: The Tesla Roadster, known for going from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds without a drop of gas, will be available for test drives during Earth Month. The car is faster than a Porsche and greener than a Prius. Want to give it a spin? It’s available for test drive from 12-4 p.m. April 21-24.

-Extravagantly Green: Fall in love with the Tesla Roadster and and it’s yours. This one-of-a-kind package includes the keys and title to the Tesla Roadster, along two-night accommodations at the Hotel Felix, dinner for two at Elate and a free breakfast. For $125,000, this package is simply extravagantly green.

-Windy City’s Wind Turbine: From April 7-30, a working wind turbine and solar panel will be on display outside the hotel. The display will show guests and locals how wind and sunshine are converted into energy.

-An Eco-Friendly Toast: A new menu item on the lobby bar? The $12 Treetini martini – made with VeeV acai spirit and other organic ingredients – supports the planting of a tree.

Stop by and Happy Earth Month!
