October is certainly a banner month at the United Center, Florence + The Machine take the stage on the 19th. Phil Collins makes his return in his cheekily titled Not Dead Yet, LIVE! Tour.

oct 26/27
Sir Elton John takes the stage in what is billed as his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour at the United Center. We certainly hope it's not farewell, forever. 

oct 31
We can think of few places that turn out Halloween quite like Boystown in Chicago. For the pinnacle of costumery and pageantry, find yourself at the Northalsted Halloween Parade! The Parade steps off at 7:30 at Halsted and Belmont, so its a short "L" or Uber away from dana. 

nov 1 - nov 4
A must see this Fall is SOFA, the Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design show at Navy Pier's Festival Hall. A favorite every year, this show distinguishes itself by featuring three-dimensional art that "crosses the boundaries of fine art, decorative art, and design."

Ice skating in Millennial Park

Michigan Avenue shimmers and shines in this beloved Chicago Holiday tradition. The Magnificent Miles Lights Festival steps off with all our beloved Disney Characters and of course,  the seasons first siting of the big guy himself. It's perfect for adults, teens, and kids.
