The Village of Lisle and the Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau have partnered to create a Special Events Grant Program, a curriculum designed to provide funding to organizations and groups that are actively creating new, or enhancing existing, community events in Lisle.

"This program will help us achieve a number of Board directives," said Mayor Joe Broda. "High quality special events improve the quality of life for the community, a major goal of the Village Board. Engaging volunteers to serve on the committee reflects the Board’s directive to increase civic engagement opportunities. More than a dozen people have volunteered to date- the majority of members have lived in Lisle for more than seventeen years. Now that’s commitment and I thank them for their dedication and look forward to some strong results from this talented group."

The program aims to facilitate high quality, family events available to the public, as well as attract visitors, increase economic vitality, and create a sense of positive community. A Special Events Grant Committee, composed of members of the Village Board, staff and community volunteers, will evaluate grant requests and provide recommendations to the board. The Village Board has ultimate authority to award grants.

Located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, ACME Hotel is bringing the personality. Bold art, outstanding technology and a locale that reflects the neighborhood’s vibrant nightlife are just a few of the attractions.

 

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.  

 

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.
