The Night Life is the Good Life - Chicago, IL
Dairy Foods, Oct 15, 1999 by: Gerry Clark

"The night life ain't no good life, but it's my life," B.B. King sings in the Willie Nelson-penned "Night Life." Obviously the legendary bluesman wasn't thinking about Chicago.

Especially after a day-long, on-the-dogs experience at Worldwide Food Expo, night time is indeed the right time for some well-deserved R&R...just don't make it too late (unless you literally want to hit the show floor the next morning).

The city offers action extending from theaters to music clubs to taverns and beyond, opening the door to all kinds of evening-time excitement.

In particular, Chicago boasts an explosive music scene, punctuated by a roster of authentic blues clubs (and no, House of Blues isn't one of them) that showcase some of the biggest names and premium talent to hit a stage anyplace.

Mini-Guide to Chicago, Illinois

More on the City of Chicago:

The main city of Illinois offers plenty to do, whether you're looking to visit, or planning to make Chicago your new home. Come and watch the magic of the Chicago Bulls, enjoy a White Sox game, or try to beat the curse of the Chicago Cubs.

Educate yourself in the Harold Washington Library Center, the world's larges public library which holds two million books, or visit the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, which took thirteen years to restore. Enjoy the view of the Windy City from the 103rd floor of the Skydeck in the Sears Tower, or take a walk on the open-air sky walk at the Hancock Observatory, where you can view as far as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana.

Take the kids to the Brookfield Zoo where they can see over two thousand animals, or have a robot guide you through the history of Chicago on the Time Escape ride at Navy Pier. The Chicago Air and Water Show is a free show every August that showcases the Navy Blue Angels, but if you want to spend some money, the Magnificent Mile is a one-mile stretch of land that hosts 460 shops.

The Chicago Cultural Center hosts numerous shows throughout the year, but no visit to Chicago would be complete without taking in a show at the world famous Apollo Theater. With forty museums and over six thousand restaurants, it's hard to be bored in Chicago. It's even harder to do everything worthwhile in one trip.
