Sometime last summer, my friend Molly mentioned a book she was writing about things to do in Chicago. Hmmmm, I thought, definitely sounds like something up her alley. She’s very much an advocate for Chicago (she gives tours around the city) and also works for the Chicago Architecture Foundation. Fast forward to February, and OMG, the book is very much done. :-O
Last weekend, to celebrate, she had a book party at Logan Arcade (which happens to be the #25 thing to do in the book). In case you can’t tell in the picture above, Molly is always smiling and has to be one of the nicest, most genuine person in Chicago – if not the world. If it’s true that you can judge a person by the company she keeps, then you know that she’s a great person as everyone at her party was so supportive of her; her crazy, ridiculous talent and omg, this year-long commitment she made to writing this book (from what I could tell, it certainly was a labor of love). I was only there for a short time, but what I noticed was there were so many smiles and hugs on Saturday. The girl is loved. And so is her book. So I’m going to have to tell you to go out and grab 100 Things to Do in Chicago Before You Die. (You can also order it on Amazon.) Then, if you’re in Chicago, reach out to Molly (seriously, she’ll love it) and have her sign your book. I assure you that 1) she would do it and 2) she would love (LOVE) to hear from you.
While you’re at it, go to the book’s Facebook page; “like” the page and then admire the profile picture. Look familiar? 😉
