FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
architecture Wright in the City Holiday Open House
If this bummer of an economy means your office canceled its annual holiday party, don’t fret: Grab your favorite coworkers and crash this bash in The Rookery’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed lobby. Free snacks and live music in a gorgeous space should cure any cubicle blues. But work-party rule number 1 still applies: Go easy on the free Champagne.
GO: 12/1 from 5 to 7. The Rookery, 209 S LaSalle. gowright.org
