ticket lodgeIf there’s one thing you must do if you live in the Chicago suburbs, it’s to check out the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL.  The festival takes place June 2 through Sept. 11.  Notable acts include Paul Simon on June 18, Seth McFarlene on June 22, Patti Labelle and The Commodores on June 23, Bob Dylan on June 24, Gavin DeGraw and the Fray on June 25, Duran Duran on July 8, and Diana Ross on July 27.  I’m personally very excited to hear about O.A.R. on Sept. 4.  That would be a ton of fun.  Ravinia is the largest and longest running permanent outdoor arena in the U.S.
