MPC Events Blog
You may have noticed that we have a new website and a new logo. Or you may have not. The logo still has the same colors and still have some of the initials. The new domain name though very different in print visually seems familiar. After all MPC stands for Meet People Chicago. This seamless transition was on purpose of course.
If you have ever lived in Chicago for more than a few months, one thing you know you need to do before you move out of town is to enjoy a day (or night) in one of Chicago's best rooftops. This is because Chicago, as we locals like to say, has two seasons: Winter and Construction. Laughs aside, our summer is woefully short. We may have three months of good weather and that's it. And until recently, Chicago wasn't known for rooftop bars. In fact it's only been in the last few years that there's been a thankful proliferation of rooftop venues. And now (smiles) there are many good ones to choose from. But since we can't choose them all, we'll pick our favorite rooftop bars in the heart of Chicago nightlife, River North. Sit back, relax, and see (and read) where your next outing will be in the coming summer months!
Chicago is a city that loves its sports, as well as one with a respected reputation for comfort food and drinks. Combining these two things, it comes as no surprise that the city is just about the best place in America to find a great sports bar. There are in fact dozens of noteworthy places to catch a game, have a few drinks, and enjoy some classic game food. Among them though, some stand out as particularly great options. Here is our list of the top sports bars in Chicago.
St Patrick's Day. If you are not from Chicago the first thing you're thinking is probably something like this: Irish inspired holiday, leprechauns, a Catholic saint named Patrick, green, people drinking booze. Yes, that's what Chicagoans think too but here's the thing. St Patrick's Day in Chicago is more like an event. An ALL DAY CITY EVENT.
Anyone who has walked or passed downtown Chicago know that the Saturday of or before the actual official holiday (and yes in Chicago we considered it a holiday), millions of Chicagoans, midwesterners, even people from the east coast, west coast and people from all over the world come to Chicago to celebrate this special day.
