After 51 years of business, Geja’s Café  in Chicago has just unveiled it’s much-anticipated transformation. Updates include new dining chairs and silverware, and a transformed outdoor space with three fire pits.

“The Geja’s experience will now only be enhanced the moment you step onto the patio,” says Jeff Lawler, proprietor. “We feel that the addition of the outdoor patio with fire pits and garden flowers as guests enter will only add to the romance and ambiance that is Geja’s.”

With construction completed, guests will once again be able to enjoy the restaurant  that has been voted “Best Fondue Dining,” by CNN; the “Ultimate Romantic Dipping Place in North America,” by Food Network Channel; and one of “America’s 50 Most Romantic Restaurants” by Open Table.

Geja’s menu features a list of fine wines and more than 20 types of fondue entrees, including cheese and chocolate fondues. For more information, visit gejascafe.com.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.
