COME FOR BUSINESS, STAY FOR PLEASURE
ACME'S GUIDE TO CHICAGO WEEKNIGHT EXPERIENCES
Even though most of the summer festivals fall on the weekends in summertime, you can still have an amazing Chicago Summer Experience if you're traveling here on business during the week! Yup! It's time to break away from that snoozy sales meeting and venture out! If you know what to do, you can actually make a Tuesday FEEL like a Friday! Love concerts? We've partnered with Schubas + Lincoln Hall to bring you ACME's Summer of Rock Promotion - which gets you seats to some of the best sets in town! That's a pretty cool diversion from work, right? We also offer a specially curated Art tour . . . which means you are driven around to see some of the coolest graffiti in the city!
Also, check out some of our favorite options below for turning your business trip into a pleasure trip and experience some local weeknight (and day) fun!
