Turn left and continue north on N Michigan Avenue one block. Turn left onto E Lake Street and pick up lunch at the Broken English Taco Pub.  Open 11am-12am and just a two-minute walk from Millennium Station, the Broken English Taco Pup is the perfect place to pick up a delicious casual lunch to take with you to the park; be sure to call ahead! Not in the mood for tacos? Continue west on Lake Street one block and stop by Chick-fil-A.

Picnic ready, it is time to head to the park to enjoy the beautiful summer weather. Head back to N Michigan Avenue, turn right, and continue south one block.
