  • Eat some pi 

This Sunday (March 14) is pi day—a day dedicated to celebrating the value of pi. Why this day you ask? Because it is 3-14 or 3.14. Even if you aren’t a fan of numbers, this day is a great excuse to chow down on some pie.

  • Go outside

The weather has finally gotten warmer, so go outside and embrace it. Maybe you want to hike, go for a bike ride, take a picnic, or do anything else, but just remember to embrace some fresh air and enjoy the amazing weather.

  • Don’t forget about Daylight Savings

It is time for our clocks to spring forward once again, so make sure you get some rest to prepare for the loss of an hour.

  • Watch the Snyder Cut of Justice League  

If you have HBO Max, stream the re-produced Justice League film. Its goal is the fix all the errors in the original film, but only time will tell.

  • Ice Skating at Millennium Park

Millennium Park’s outdoor ice-skating rinks are opening up once again for the Holiday season. The McCormick Tribune Rink is a traditional oval shape perfect for beginners. The Ribbon, located at Maggie Daily Park, is a long circular path with level, uphill, and downhill skating for a slightly more experienced skater although beginners are welcome to try. Skates may be rented for $16-20 a pair, but bring your own, and it’s completely free of charge. Due to COVID-19, there will be limited capacity. Go to maggiedaleypark.com/things-to-do-see/skating-ribbon/ to make your reservations now or to learn more about skating downtown.
