Funky Tiki Cocktail Bar
A trip to this funky tiki cocktail bar will make you feel like you’re really “in the know.” Three Dots and a Dash prides itself on being a secret hideaway: The entrance is literally in an alley. Once you find your way there, you’ll find yourself choosing from a selection of more than 200 rums and exotic cocktails like Too Many Chiefs, Idle Hands and the Zombie (which appears on the menu with two skulls next to it for its potency), the (enterand on its unique cocktail concoctions. It was even named one of the World’s Best 50 Bars by Drinks International. Food wise, there are small plates and appetizers. If you are looking a full meal, maybe stop here for “dessert”! Note: You must be 21 or older to enter. Not a good place to bring the kids!
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.
