AN HISTORICAL EVENT Hamilton: The Exhibition is now open, offering an interactive experience for all ages from the creators of the hit musical


Advertisement Come sailing aboard the majestic Tall Ship Windy this summer! Windy is a 148-foot traditional four-masted Schooner, and is the only working sailing ship on Navy Pier. Since 1995, Windy has offered daily public sailing excursions, fireworks cruises, educational programs, and private events. Other unique events during the season include storytelling cruises, when guests hear “tall tales” of pirate history, and the glorious architecture of the Chicago Skyline, and two unforgettable annual Jazz orchestra cruises. Windy’s mission is to bring Tall Ship sailing to the public for enjoyment, personal and spiritual growth, and self-discovery. The ship’s motto is “Exploration, Education, and Discovery”. Windy was awarded the status of the Official Flagship of the City of Chicago, by Mayor Richard Daley in 2006. Tall Ship Windy is hard to miss from the shoreline; you can see her 11 sails billowing in the wind and she gracefully glides across the Chicago lakefront. Not many people routinely have the opportunity to experience sailing, which is so unlike any other boating experience. Seldom do you get to be “at one” with nature, feel the wind, sunshine, the sound of the water, and the skyline views, without the roar of a diesel engine or the smells of engine exhaust. Not to mention, you are spending time on a vessel that is historic. A truly unique blend of the old and the new, Windy is constructed from modern materials, but her design is that of old trading ships of the 19th Century, which brought people and goods from far and wide to settle the Midwest. In those days, when there were no highways, or steamships, Tall Ships were the “trucks” of the era. Windy is modern, while maintaining the character and charm of the Golden Age of Sail. She is truly a beauty! You are not just a captive “passenger” on Tall Ship Windy…and we don’t just motor around the harbor- Once we cast off, the sails are “set”, the engine turned off, and you are now real sailors! Without a prescribed course, we sail wherever the wind takes us. While of course you are invited to relax, sit back and enjoy the view, cruising on Windy can also be an active, interactive experience which is fun for all ages. You are invited to hoist the working sails, learn the vocabulary of sailing, “trim the sheets”, and even take a turn at the helm. Guests are free to move about the ship, explore, ask questions and learn about seafaring and Tall Ships. Our Captains and crew will love to engage you in stories, demonstrations, activities, and are known to an occasional burst forth in song! Several times each day, we offer short storytelling programs such as Tales of Pirates on the Great Lakes, and our legendary Lakefront Architecture Sail. A popular sail is our twilight early evening sail, in which you are treated to relaxing music, as the sun wanes down over the city. Visit Windy’s “Ship Store” for your enjoyment; we have a full bar equipped with drinks for small ones, drinks for tall ones, and a variety of soft drinks, coffee, and portable snacks. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, join us for the best seat in the house for the Summer Fireworks display at Navy Pier! Windy sails “rain or shine”, if at all possible, we are not going to let a passing shower set us back, except for a possible brief postponement. The Windy experience is special, and so is the ship’s story. When you step aboard Windy, you are not cruising with a large corporation who has a “fleet” of tourist boats. Windy is a small, family-owned and operated business helmed by the husband-and-wife team of Captain Bruce and Karen Randall. Captain Bruce is a member of a large maritime family who grew up in the Boston area. Most of the men and many of the women in his family have been professional sailors: sea captains, fishermen, merchant marine or military mariners. He has raced sailboats, taught and coached others, and has been a licensed Captain for 15 years. Karen also grew up in a sailing family in New York, and after a career as a Clinical Psychologist returned to leisure and competitive sailing in the 1990’s. We’ll bet you’ll never guess WHO was one of her sailing coaches! Many of the Randall family members work or have worked for Windy over the years, and others who join the crew quickly become members of the “Windy family”. It is a convivial and intimate atmosphere, with numerous of the crew members living aboard the ship 24/7, for the summer. They build their own mini-community and lovingly take care of the ship as their home for the season. You are quickly drawn into the teamwork, mutual respect, affection, laughter and good energy in this family-oriented and family-friendly business, which makes Tall Ship Windy a very special kind of adventure – and anything BUT ordinary!

COURTESY SHEDD AQUARIUM

T

his summer, as you’re enjoying one of Chicago’s many breathtaking waterways, now there’s a way to give back to nature at the same time through a unique program. Through the Shedd Aquarium’s Kayak For Conservation mission, individuals and groups can sign up to paddle the Chicago River’s North Branch Canal alongside Shedd’s wildlife conservation experts to help look for animals in need, pick up litter and collect data that contributes to Shedd’s scientific research of the Chicago River and the area riverbeds. The program is open to all ages and skill levels, from those who’ve never paddled to advanced rowers. Not only does it give a tour of the scenic waterways of the city, but it offers participants the opportunity to make a positive impact on Chicago’s aquatic ecosystem. And the best part is that you will likely see painted and red-eared slider turtles, multiple species of herons and ducks, honeybees, butterfl ies and more during the tour. There are two different options to partake in—the 2-hour River Explorers sessions, which are introductory in nature, and the 3-hour River Monitors sessions that provide an intermediate paddling experience. Prices and times vary, but there are options all throughout July. Head to www.sheddaquarium.org for the latest information.

This year’s lineup includes indie darlings Haim, the 60th anniversary celebration of The Isley Brothers, pop queen Robyn, plus Mavis Staples, Belle & Sebastian and Charlie XCX. In addition to the music, Pitchfork hosts

a mini version of the Renegade Craft Fair and the Flatstock Poster Fair. www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com The 38th annual American Music Festival (July 3-6) is a must-do for fans of alt country and roots rock.

Witch and more to be announced, plus a kids stage and plenty of food and drink vendors. www.wickerparkbucktown.com Coming up soon is also the giant outing Lollapalooza (August 1-4), with The Strokes, Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae and Gary Clark Jr. www.lollapalooza.com

FEST STYLES FROM BOSS HAIR GROUP

FRESH FESTIVAL LOOKS Music festivals aren’t only about what’s being heard but how you want to be seen too. Here are some local spots to get fest-worthy hair and fashion. BOSS HAIR GROUP This hip eco-friendly salon, in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, has a large mural of David Bowie on the wall to inspire your music festival looks. Founder John Blue and a team of talented stylists can whip up trendy braided hair styles (a great way to beat the heat, too), funky color that stands out and sweat-proof curls. www.bosshairgroup.com LOST GIRLS VINTAGE For boho chic fashion looks, trust Sarah Azzouzi and Kyla Embrey. The owners of Lost Girls Vintage (up until recently) ran their business out of Winnie, a 1976 Dodge RV Camper, as well as pop-ups around town like the Renegade Art Fair. Now the duo has their first brick-and-mortar store in West Town where their eye for design is on display through shelves up on shelves of vintage clothing handsourced by the duo, alongside a line of vintage plus size garments that are often hard to find. Also score jewelry and beauty products while you shop. www.lostgirlschicago.com

He conquered helping the Chicago Cubs to a World Series victory, now team manager Joe Maddon is taking on his latest challenge–presenting a new restaurant.

Just Beachy

Chicago has an incredible 18.5 miles of lakefront from the north to south sides, offering a record number of beaches to enjoy in the warmer weather. But beyond the sand and blue waves, some beaches have extra special features that make them stand out based on the experience you’re looking to get under the sun. Whether you’re toting along the kids, have a pet that loves the sand or want a unique dining experience, here’s where to go.

PET-FRIENDLY: MONTROSE HARBOR Not all Chicago beaches welcome your pooches, but there is a dedicated canine community that has open arms at Montrose Harbor in the Uptown neighborhood. This area is actually the only off-leash beach for dogs in the city and it’s open yearround. Montrose & Simonds Dr.

DINING IN THE SAND: NORTH AVENUE BEACH North Avenue Beach is one of the best spots in the city for all kinds of activities, from vol-

SHORE CLUB AT NORTH AVENUE BEACH

leyball tournaments to the fun at Castaways Bar, but there’s also the great addition of Shore Club. This “urban oasis” offers a formal dining area, plus a patio and exclusive lounge area filled with daybeds and cabanas, where you can enjoy brunch, lunch and dinner menus with Mediterranean-inspired fare plus a summery cocktail menu. 1600 N. Lake Shore Dr.

GREAT VIEWS: 12TH STREET BEACH Located in Burnham Park, on Chicago’s Museum Campus,

this scenic beach features a background of the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium. It’s great for walking and paddelboarding with calm waters, and if you’re hungry there’s the Del Campos eatery. 1200 S. Linn White Dr.

NATURE’S GLORY: RAINBOW BEACH & PARK This lakefront spread, in the South Shore neighborhood, is part of a 60-acre park and next to one of Chicago’s oldest public gardens. There’s also dunes with wildlife. 2873 E 75th St.

OOH! AHH! FIREWORKS! HERE ARE THE BEST WAYS TO ENJOY JULY 4TH IN CHICAGO

CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT: ODYSSEY CRUISES ALONG THE RIVERFRONT; THE VIEWS YOU CAN EXPECT; OFFSHORE ROOFTOP

Offshore Rooftop The nation’s largest rooftop, Offshore, just opened at Navy Pier, and is the perfect spot to catch the Pier’s fireworks display. 1000 East Grand Ave. Odyssey Cruises Another great way to catch the fireworks over Lake Michigan and the Chicago River is on an Odyssey dinner cruise that offer cocktails, plated dinners,

DJs and of course some of the best views around. 600 E. Grand Ave. Grant Park Music Fest The Independence Day Salute is an annual tradition with symphonic presentations of patriotic favorites, including Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever, the Armed Forces Salute and more.
