Summertime’s here Chicago! Shed those winter coats and go out and explore everything The Loop has to offer. Just to be clear, we’ve all had a case of the after-work boost. Right? Y’know, that sudden burst of energy you get (sometimes) right after leaving the job. It comes out of nowhere, and usually just leads to a really energetic commute home. You might not know where to put all that energy. Well, we’ve got a couple of ideas for you. How about you go try a weekday party cruise in Chicago. Don’t know where to find them? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Weekday Party Cruise in Chicago
Hate Mondays? Why? You can’t start a productive week if at the beginning you’re already feeling the day’s pulling your teeth. Life’s too short to stay grumpy all the time. Plus, there’s plenty of reasons not to hate Mondays. The most important one being our weekly Monday Night Sunset Cocktail Cruise that takes you on a trip across the Lake aboard the beautiful Mystic Blue Yacht. Catch a drink with like-minded individuals looking to liven up an otherwise mundane Monday. Choose from a menu of bar classics and enjoy the magnificent view of Chi-Town’s skyline. This cruise is setting sail every Monday this summer, so don’t miss your chance to party like it’s Friday, on a Monday.
But it doesn’t stop there, we’re also T’d on Tuesdays on the good o’le Mystic Blue. Our Rock The Yacht Tuesday Night Happy Hour Cruise is the perfect place for you to let loose off the clock. Head to Navy Pier, hop aboard, and hit the dancefloor. There will be a live DJ playing the hottest Dance, Pop, Hip-Hop, and Top 40 Hits the entire cruise. Grab a drink while you enjoy the sights of the Chicago skyline. Cool off from a hot day in that hot office and let that summer breeze remind you how beautiful the Windy City is. This happy hour cruise will be setting sail every Tuesday this summer; so meet us on The Lake for some weekday fun.
After you’ve done your duties as a weekday warrior, it’s nice to treat yourself to a little after-work fun. Good thing we know exactly where all the best weekly cruises are, and now you know where they are too. You’re welcome.
Alright, Now What?
So you’ve sailed on one of these cruises, but you’re just not quite ready to just call it night. We understand, so here are some recommendations on great water-side eateries you’d want to check out.
Chicago Cut Steakhouse
A steakhouse with its own dry-aging room? Count us in! This Chicago staple has a plethora of appetizing sounding appetizers like the Lobsterscargot (lobster tail pieces dipped in garlic butter) and the Lollipop Lamb Chops. Not to mention an extensive amount of options for fresh seafood and salad. Oh, and there’s also steaks.
Oak Street Beach Food + Drink
This nice beach-side bistro has enough flavor-filled foods to totally destroy that beach bod you’ve been building all winter. You could grab a Chicago Dog, or a Mag Mile Burger, then wash it down with one of their signature frozen margaritas.
Dick’s Last Resort
This place is anything but a last resort, Dick’s has been well known for its vibrancy, and light-hearted jabbing. Servers routinely place dunce cap Esq paper hats with less than flattery words scribbled on them atop the heads unsuspecting guest. But hey, it’s worth it once you get a bite of their signature fall-off-the-bone ribs.
