Mercat a la Planxa, Chicago, IL
How to Summer Mercat Style
June is all about spending time outside and enjoying the beautiful summer city that Chicago is. Luckily, Mercat a la Planxa is right next to two of the best parks in the city, Millennium and Grant. There are numerous summer events on the calendar, and there are no excuses to miss out on the fun. What pairs well with summer in the park? Catalan tapas, of course! We came up with the perfect pairing recommendation for the event that floats your boat.
Millenium Park Summer Film Series – Each Tuesday from June 5-August 21 Millennium Park shows a different film. Stop into Mercat for surtido de quesos artesanales tradicionales (local and Spanish cheese plate) and a glass of Red Sangria.
Chicago SummerDance in Grant Park – A glass of Rosé and a Serrano Ham & Fig Salad is a light option before you go get your dance on. SummerDance occurs Thursday-Sundays through August in Grant Park.
Millennium Park Workout Series – There’s no better way to kick off your weekend than with a workout followed by a good brunch spread. Workout classes take place on Saturdays from 7-11am.
