No Bull

Chicago's got a brand-New Age bag

ShareThis

Okay, the Bulls are terrible, the winters are subarctic, and that famous Italian sausage will, science has proved, demolish your arteries. But Chicago's moved past all that. A new, mellow attitude has taken over. Start your Second City weekend with an afternoon at Salon and Spa Blue, a New Age establishment specializing in an assortment of "glows" and wraps. Bed down at the low-key, boutiquey Willows Hotel, located two blocks from Lake Michigan, where a psyche-cleansing sundown stroll reveals the skyline in all its Thomas Edison splendor. For dinner, sup at Tru, the restaurant of the moment, run by the celebrated husband-and-wife cooking team Gale Gand and Rick Tramonto. No kielbasa here; try the steamed halibut and braised vegetables for a healthy meal, Chicago-style.

DETAILS Willows Hotel, 773-528-8400 (rooms start at $119); Salon and Spa Blue, 773-525-2583; Tru, 312-202-0001.
