We're feeling chipper this morning. Maybe it's the way the sun now stays up until almost 5:30 p.m., or maybe we've just started hallucinating to subconsciously cope with seasonal affective disorder, but gosh darn it if it doesn't feel like spring's right around the corner!
And you know what the short, barely-existing Chicago spring means: Summer!
And, to us, nothing means Chicago in the summertime like the Grant Park Music Festival, which has released its 2010 schedule. So thank you, GPMF, for reminding us that warm evenings spent sitting in the Millennium Park grass watching the sun descend over the city while sipping wine and listening to free performances by the Grant Park Orchestra are NOT figments of our imaginations. We just have to make it four more months.

Grant Park Music Festival Announces 2010 Lineup
Free music is fun! Although this is just outside of the Sloop it's still close enough to enjoy, here is the write-up courtesy of the Chicagoist:
We're particularly looking forward to July 4th when you can check out Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
