20 things to do on warm nights in Chicago besides shoot people

Last night was a beautiful warm night in Chicago. My husband and I took advantage of the warm weather to sit on our back porch, drink beer, stare at our phones and talk about electronic content management solutions. (You thought we were pretty cool until I got to those last two items, didn’t you?) A lot of other people, however, took advantage of the warm weather by going out and shooting people. 3 people are dead and at least 17 wounded from shootings last night. WTF, Chicago?!
