Visit one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations with little to no children blocking your path. If you’ve ever been to Jazzin’ at the Shedd, you know what to expect. Jingle Jazzin’ is happening only this week til Dec. 23. Saunter into the Shedd for $20, which gets you admission into most exhibits at the aquarium, plus the opportunity to buy beers, wines by the glass and by bottle (on my last visit, the bottle really was the more economical choice). Tickets are $20 each here or there the day of, and drinks will run you $7 and up. Of course if you’re a member of the Shedd, you get in free with one additional person. The aquarium is open til 9 p.m. this week.
Now go make some fishy faces, but don’t spill.
