Alternative Summer Guide: Chicago's favorite season is almost here but we're not here to hype the most obvious summer hotspots. Instead, we're here to tell you how to get on a boat in Chicago especially if you don't own one (or know someone who knows someone who does), all the best summer places for your dog, and where to find mezcal, the hot spirit of the summer. Plus, the case for trading in your Lollapalooza pass, your guide to skipping this summer's popcorn movies in favor of a season full of dynamic screenings, and why you should skip the Cubs and check out the lovable losers of sixteen-inch softball.
