As we enter the final stretch of another Chicago winter, summer days still seem like a distant dream. It will be several months before we can once again swim in Lake Michigan, purchase paletas any time of day, or go to free films in Millennium Park. Who can help but be tempted by the safety of home and Netflix? But there too lies a wintry danger: Cabin Fever. With another month (at least) of snow and slush and cold winds, we at KOVAL decided we needed to find a way to get ourselves out of the house without risking exposure. What you might not know about KOVAL, though, is that we love books. A good book from a unique and beautiful library? We’re there! What’s more, we love a good book while sipping KOVAL spirits at warm, toasty bars … with fireplaces. Follow along as we explore the city’s libraries and nearby cozy warm up spots.
