Puck’s Places to Play: Chicago
MuckFest® MS Chicago is next weekend, so Puck had us put together a list of his favorite places to play in the Windy City when he’s taking a break from rolling around in the mud!
Let yourself be a tourist for the day and check out Chicago’s coolest landmark.
Head over to Millennium Park to take in the sights and sounds of the Windy City. Don’t forget to see Chicago’s most iconic piece of art; Cloud Gate, also known as The Bean. Taking a photo at The Bean is a cool way to see the Chicago skyline as it reflects off the mirrored surface of the sculpture. Puck tells us the best view of the city is from the top, but with The Bean sitting 12 feet tall we might need to grow some wings to verify his opinion.
Enjoy a hot meal after a long day in the mud at any pizza joint in town.
If Chicago is known for anything, it’s the deep dish pizza. Whether you decide to eat your pie at Lou Malnati’s, Giordano’s, or Gino’s East, one thing is certain, you’ll have enough cheese and sauce to satisfy any pizza craving. And if you’re anything like Puck, your order will be inspired by MuckFest MS with fresh muckshrooms and extra muckzzarella.
Make sure you don’t touch anything with your muddy hands at any of Chicago’s world famous museums.
Not only does Chicago have world class pizza, but you can also find a handful of world-class museums along Lake Michigan. Whether you’re into art, history, or animals, Chicago has got you covered! For a relaxing day after MuckFest MS, Puck likes to stroll through the Art Institute of Chicago, The Field Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium. He recommends you do the same, but just make sure you take a bath first. The museums aren’t a fan of his muddy wing prints on the glass.
Thought you saw some nutty stuff at MuckFest MS? Check out Second City!
Known for being the starting ground for some of the greatest comedians around, Second City is the perfect place to continue laughing after MuckFest MS. Catch a show or even take a comedy class on the same stage that the likes of Bill Murray, Tina Fey, and Steve Carell have all graced. And if you hear any “quacks” in the midst of all the laughs, you’ll know Puck is somewhere enjoying himself.
Check out the view from the Skydeck that may be even better than the top of Crash Landing.
Open 365 days a year, this 1,353-foot-tall building lets you venture out onto a glass ledge from the 103rd floor. Known as the Willis Tower and the tallest building in the western hemisphere, the Skydeck let’s those brave enough step out onto the glass and take in an aerial view of the Windy City. Now you’ll officially be able to say that you’ve seen Chicago from Puck’s perspective!
