Things to do in Chicago from Now till Monday
Because you’ve already solidified your brackets. Happy March Madness!
Also, a big thank you to Blue Lagoon and WAGSTAFF WORLDWIDE for sending Chicagoings.com a care package filled with a candle, body scrub, and the most unique skin masks I’ve ever seen! These Natural Algae Mask contains algae harvested straight from Blue Lagoon in Iceland. It promises to rejuvenate and nourish skin from within and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving an immediate lift and youthful glow. We’ll see! I can’t wait to try these!
The package was sent as a reminder that for the first time Icelandair is now flying to the country directly from O’Hare. Plus, the Taste of Iceland starts tomorrow. Let’s go to Reykjavik!

Love Notes Music Organization, a 501©3 not for profit, was started by Lee England Jr. in an effort to continue the tradition of music and the arts in schools.
