Cozy, Intimate Blues Experience
If you want a cozy, intimate blues experience, this is the place to go. There isn’t a bad seat in the house in this small, authentic venue, which has music 6 days a week (closed Mondays). Doors open at 8 pm, and the music starts at 9:30 pm. B.L.U.E.S. is also located across the street from Kingston Mines, so if you’re up to for two places in one evening, it doesn’t get any more convenient.
I have been running since the first grade. Running is still my BFF! The 2018 Chicago Marathon was my 100th marathon and my 24th time running Chicago. (And during my first one, I thought, “Never again.” After I finished, I changed my tune to, “What else can I do?”) Since then, I’ve competed in marathons all over the world and I’m a huge proponent of racecations. I believe the best way to see another city is on your feet. I most recently published my first book, “Me, You & 26.2: Coach Denise’s Guide to Get You To Your First Marathon.” The book echoes what I tell my coaching clients, whether I’ve been helping them get to their first mile or their first 100 miler.
