On Aug. 15, 2016, The El San Juan Hotel & Casino will temporarily close to undergo a multimillion dollar renovation; the changes are set for an end date of early 2017. Guest rooms, pool area, meeting and entertainment spaces, food and beverage venues and spa and fitness facilities will all be renovated.

“El San Juan is truly a one-of-a-kind property that we look forward to revitalizing," says Andro Nodarse-León of León Mayer & Co., one of the owners and asset manager of the resort. The updates will pay homage to the historical status of this property as an iconic luxury lifestyle and entertainment resort, while incorporating a playfully elegant feeling to the modernized setting.” 

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.

 
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.
