Happy March Madness Chicago! We know you’ve done your research, consulted your friends, and analyzed your brackets. (Some might even say their brackets are broken with so many upsets already).
What better way to reward yourself for your hard work than enjoying our neighbor restaurant Troquet River North’s March Madness game day special? For all March Madness games, Troquet River North will offer their Troquet Burger with fries and a Miller Lite for only $10.
With an angus beef patty, shallot jam, and roasted garlic aioli the Troquet Burger is the perfect lunch or dinner option when cheering on your favorite team. And if you’re craving another dish for lunch or dinner, each item on Troquet’s menu is inspired by a region in France. Complete with a fully stocked wine bar, there’s little chance that your menu choice will go wrong (though we can’t say the same about your bracket).
To make a reservation call 312-202-9900 or visit www.troquetrivernorth.com. Let the madness begin!

Get moving! Chicago is known for their robust running and racing season. Which is why here at Hotel Felix we couldn’t be more excited for the kick off to the season, The Bank of American Shamrock Shuffle, in just three short weeks. The Shamrock Shuffle is in its 36th year and shows no sign of slowing down. Open to runners of all ages and skill levels, the race begins at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 29 at Grant Park in Chicago.
To keep runners motivated in that home stretch, the Shamrock Shuffle’s famous “green guys and green girl” will make an appearance once again this year during the race. The “green guys and green girl” serve as morale captains to keep the fun, festive spirit of the race alive all the way to the finish line.
With Grant Park only about a 20 minute walk from Hotel Felix, we’re the perfect location for any out of town participants looking for a place to rest and prep before the big day. All rooms at Hotel Felix are complete with linens and bedding woven from the finest cotton, L’Occitane amenities, and plush robes. Complimentary internet access is also available in every room. And what better to unwind after any run than with a luxurious spa treatment from Spa Boutique Felix.
To make a reservation visit hotefelixchicago.com or call our concierge at 312-447-3440. So to all participants in the Shamrock Shuffle, good luck! And we hope to see you soon.

Calling all green thumbs! The Chicago Flower and Garden Show is approaching. One of our favorite events to attend here at Hotel Felix, the Chicago Flower and Garden show has been a sign that spring has begun after a long, cold winter since 1847.
Held at Navy Pier, the Chicago Flower and Garden Show works to create realistic gardening inspiration for all attendees. From the moment you step inside, you are immersed into a lush landscape with miniature gardens displaying perennials, annuals, and trees. These miniature gardens are courtesy of local landscape designers, builders, and suppliers whose goal it is each year to inspire seasoned gardeners and newcomers alike. In addition, there will be the Gardening Live stage and How-To Garden sessions to provide interactive and educational sessions for all levels of gardeners.
The annual American Institute of Floral Designers Bobbi Cup Design Competition will be held during the Flower and Garden Show on March 14, at 1p.m. This live design competition features some of the best floral designers in the industry. Watch them as they race to create the best floral display in only an hour and a half.
The Chicago Flower and Garden show takes place March 14-22 at Navy Pier.
– Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday – 10a.m.-6p.m.
– Thursday, Friday, and Saturday – 10a.m.-8p.m.
Tickets prices range from $10 to $17 and can be purchased at www.chicagoflower.com.

Looking for a great festival to attend while winter sticks around? Here’s one we recommend: attend the One Earth Film Festival on March 6-8. It combines two of our favorite things at Hotel Felix: movies and the environment.
Part of Green Community Connections, One Earth Film Festival is now in its fourth consecutive year. The purpose of One Earth Film Festival is simple – create opportunities for understanding climate change and sustainability through the power of film. Each film is shown at designated theaters around the city of Chicago. Following the film, moderators from Green Community Connections lead discussions focused on the environmental solutions proposed in each film. Featured films this year include:
– Angel Azul, Directed by Marcy Cravat and Kath Delaney
– Arise, Directed by Lori Joyce and Candice Orlando
– Edible City, Directed by Andrew Hasse
– Field Biologist, Directed by Jared Flescher
With a selection of more than 35 riveting environmental films, there is certain to be a film for each festival-goer. For movie times, tickets, and a full weekend agenda visit greencommunityconnections.org.
