Friday Round Up

It’s hot outside, we get it, but that’s no excuse to worship your air conditioner all weekend! The Pitchfork Music Festival is heating up The Windy City today through Sunday. Throw on some sunscreen and catch Icelandic music legend Björk rocking out with nearly fifty other musical acts.

Take five to freeze your brain at Chicago’s favorite slushie machine: Parson’s Chicken and Fish serves scorched-to-perfection fried chicken alongside icy and irresistibly popular Negroni Slushies. Cool kicks can also be found in your very own kitchen with easy homemade Blueberry-Green Tea Slushies.

Too hot to wander out for a manicure? Have the nail art shipped to you with Scratch’s monthly subscriptions—each box contains three limited-edition nail wraps from a featured artist, nail art tools and accents, step-by-step tutorials, and a gift from that month's artist.

While you’re on a DIY streak, turn vino into the perfect table number marker at your summer wedding. This crafty table setting will have guests drinking to your good fortune—and your excellent taste.
