For whatever reason, you are not going to Lollapalooza. That doesn’t mean give up on finding anything to do in the city this weekend. Crain’s Chicago Business has ten good suggestions for what you might do in the next couple of days that won’t involve crushing throngs of people and overstimulated sensory overload.
My number one pick is SAIL. Want to get some cooling lake breezes running through your pup’s fur? Buy a ticket on a MERCURY CANINE CRUISE. The 90-minute boat ride highlights the Windy City’s dog-friendly establishments. Water bowls and newspapers are provided. Aug. 5, 10 a.m. Tickets are $7 dogs, $10 kids, $28 for adults. 112 E. Wacker Dr., (312) 332-1353, www.mercuryskylinecruiseline.com
LAUGH. Forget the highbrow performances this weekend. Instead, check out Theater Wit’s campy THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL. The story, set in Florida, is about relationships, romance and trailer parks. Aug. 3, 8 p.m. Tickets are $30. 1229 W. Belmont Ave., (773) 975-8150, www.kokandyproductions.com
