Grant Park Music Festival

Last Monday, New Music Mondays at Pritzker Pavilion was a great band called She & Him. The lead singer is Zooey Deschanel. She's also an actress who's been in many movies, most recently (500) Days of Summer. I think because of her fame and the fact that She & Him is a great band, the place was packed! We met some friends including Jay, the Czaszwicz's (Chris, Meghan, Mae and Dominic), CeCe and her boyfriend. Adam has known Jay since they were toddlers and went to high school with the rest of the gang. Here are some pics from that night:

I got there super early, 1.5 hours before the show, to reserve us some lawn space. The orange chairs are ours. They have footrests, which is awesome!

The place was unbelievably packed. The lawn actually filled completely, which I think is a first for the concert series.

Skyline view.

Chris and Meghan's super cute daughter, Mae.

And her adorable younger brother, Dominic.

Jay, looking relaxed.

Adam having a good time.

It was a beautiful 80 degree day but got a bit chilly once the sun set below the buildings.

The whole gang- Jay, Meghan, Chris, CeCe, Mae and Dom.

The new Goose Island tent right next to the lawn.

And for the wine lovers, an array of Cooper Hawk wines (actually from the previous week).

A good time was had by all!


  1. I didn't know Zooey Deschanel was in a band. I LOVE her! Looks like a fun time.

  2. Kris- I'm pretty sure you would like her band, She & Him. You should check them out on Pandora!
