farrago Make No Little Plans: Daniel Burnham and the American City
Centennial toasts to Daniel Burnham’s Plan of Chicago are nearly as plentiful as cabs on the Boul Mich. But not every nod takes place in a Burnham-envisioned space—i.e., the city’s lush lakefront lawn—or features Governor Pat Quinn as guest speaker. For history buffs, the civic-minded, and those who just like watching movies outdoors, we recommend this documentary premiere.
GO: Sep 2 at 7:30. Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park, Michigan and Randolph. millenniumpark.org
Talk about social climbing: On Oct 25, 100 daredevil types will rappel down the 27-story facade of The Wit Hotel in a feat of urban bravado. If you hear your inner thrill seeker calling, go to lungchicago.org to register. Spots are limited, and participants must commit to a minimum donation of $1,000, which goes to the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago. But the views? Priceless.
