B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Loves Chicago

Guess What's Back!!

After a brief hiatus for the fall, we are bringing back our B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Loves Chicago feature--highlighting the most amazing features and events in the City of Chicago.

Since it's a bit chilly these days, these selections will center around staying warm in the cold, but still making the most of the cooler temps.

Enjoy!
