This summer, the Chicago riverfront welcomed its newest restaurant: Pizzeria Portofino

The sun-drenched casual restaurant is filled with breezy decor that will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera. Inside, guests dine amidst white-washed wood, colorful shutters, and playful striped booths as they look out onto the beautiful water and Chicago’s historic architecture outside.  

Pizzeria Portofino's coastal Italian cuisine is present throughout every inch of the restaurant. Guests can feast in the 2,000-square-foot, 108-person dining room or the expansive 1,600-square-foot outdoor patio that hosts an additional 80 people.  

Smaller events are scattered throughout the main dining room and patio, allowing for guests of smaller events to enjoy the energy and atmosphere of the restaurant. While there are not separate private event spaces or rooms at Pizzeria Portofino, large groups can buy out the entire space.  

Pizzeria Portofino has opened in a location that is central to several of Chicago’s greatest neighborhoods including the Loop and River North, and with everything it has to offer, the restaurant is sure to make a name for itself amid the culture, history and water.  

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has announced the launch of its Dive-In Movie series, a classic, child-friendly summer film series inside the hotel's historic indoor pool. Beginning at sunset every Saturday night through Labor Day, guests can grab a bag of freshly popped popcorn and complimentary inflatables to enjoy a full-length feature film projected on the hotel's 80-foot jumbo screen.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
