It's errand day. Here are my suggestions of where to check the essentials (yoga, nails, booze run) and occasionals (jewelry or bike repair) off your to-do list.
This shop is full of cycling geeks, which bodes well even if you're a clueless biker. Great service, whether you need a tune-up or a new set of wheels.
A splurge, but results speak for themselves! Always on top of trends, has a rep as the best salon in town. Ask for Hans- a sheer genius!
Looks like a big box shop but has the feel on an indy, thanks to the fantastic staff. Craft beer, every liquor under the sun, and wines galore.
If you can fork up the cash, make this your sweat box of choice! Equipment is top-notch, classes are fresh and fun, and eye candy is plentiful. Parking is a bummer, so bike or CTA bus it if you can.
I messed up my knee and these kind folks promptly unmessed it for me. Easy to get an appointment, and a great pick for athletes.
Everything you want in a mani: speedy, long-lasting polish, good variety of colors (OPI, Essie, China Glaze). Also, no-chip Shellac manis.
An impeccably curated selection of local (Pasta Puttana! Pleasant House!) an organic groceries with craft beers to boot. Just a feel-good spot.
There's lots to love here, from the wayyy above average wine selection, to the laid-back staff who'll help you navigate the shelves of craft beer. Lots of tasting events too.
You don't have to love French fare to dig this huge indoor market. Spots like Saigon Sisters, a juice bar, a frites vendor, and a pasta spot have a lunch treat for any craving.
Welcoming for all levels. Clean, bright space. Buy a package to save some cash.
A stellar pick on Jewelers' Row. I needed my engagement ring resized, and they did it onsite and same-day. Score!
The Disneyland of grocers. Wander the two-storied emporium making sure to pause for cheese and gelato samples upstairs.
