  • Visit the Adler Planetarium

Enjoy all the Adler Planetarium has to offer this Monday through Thursday (March 9-12) for free via the Illinois resident free days. Make sure that you bring your Illinois state ID (or TigerCard) to get in for free. Free admission includes everything included in general admission. Remember to be prepared for pricy parking- fill your car up to help divide the price or consider taking public transportation. The Roosevelt train station is near the Field. From there you can take a one-mile walk through the city or take the 146 bus to the Museum Campus. To get more detailed travel information, use https://tripplanner.rtachicago.com/ccg3/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2.

  • Eat some frozen food

March is National Frozen Food Month, so eat some frozen food. Grab those pizza rolls. Pull out the pot stickers. Round up the TV dinners. Have some friends over and just eat appetizers, or find the craziest frozen foods such as Old School Pepperoni Pizza Eggrolls or Haagen-Dazs Vegetable Ice Cream.
