It happens all too often: I see a flier, an advertisement, an article or a blog post about an event, restaurant or activity and I promptly think: “I should do that.” Nine out of ten times I become distracted, sidetracked or for one reason or another forget about said activity and it never happens.
CitySwarm provides a better way to explore Chicago by offering unique, memorable event experiences spanning recreation, culture, dining and nightlife. Think: sailing on Lake Michigan followed by a lakeside picnic, dining and drinks on some of the city’s hottest patios or a day trip to ski in Wisconsin and sample local beers. You can sign up for events with groups of friends — or fly solo and meet new people.
Lindsay Saewitz founded CitySwarm to provide a way for the young people of Chicago to break out of their social ruts, explore Chicago and meet new people, while taking advantage of group-buying benefits that remain popular, especially among budget-conscious young professionals.
“I love trying new restaurants, bars and activities, but it can be so difficult to coordinate large group outings,” said Saewitz, a University of Michigan graduate. “I tend to take on the role as social coordinator in my groups of friends, but organizing can often be a huge pain.”
Events range from a night out at the theater to a competitive Whirlyball tournament to cocktails at the newest bar, and everything in between. On August 1 at 6:00 p.m. CitySwarm will host an installment of its Patio Series at Frontier in West Town that for $15 will grant guests entrance to its beer garden, two complimentary cocktails, exclusive prices on an appetizer menu and a special gift from Frontier
