The Shedd Aquarium’s live cam is equal parts relaxing and mesmerizing
Hey, Chicago. Take a deep breath, unclench your jaw and relax your shoulders. Good—now tune into this inexplicably beautiful live cam that the Shedd Aquarium set up in one of its most colorful pools of water, which is filled with angelfishes, wrasses, tangs and butterflyfishes. We’re feeling better already, aren’t you?

Some of Chicago’s finest sushi spots are now offering delivery
Cravings hit different when we're stuck at home. If you're fantasizing about nigiri, sashimi and maki, we've got the fix. Some of the best sushi restaurants in Chicago are now offering takeout and delivery so that you can get fresh fish delivered straight to your door. (And if you want more, head to our full list of options.)
A west-town classic
The sushi masters at Arami are back with a menu of maki and poke available for curbside pickup and delivery. Start with an order of spicy king crab wrapped in marinated tuna before selecting a few rolls to share (the Trio Maki with yellowtail, tuna and salmon is a classic).

A noteworthy revival
Secret sushi den Naoki shuttered toward the end of last year, leaving a shrimp-sized hole in our hearts. You can imagine our delight when we found out that chef Naoki Nakashima was back in the kitchen with a resurrected pop-up of his beloved restaurant for a limited time.

Hero of the week
One of the hardest things about social distancing is that we don't get to see our friends, family members and favorite bartenders whenever we want. But the sooner we get this over with, the sooner we can all get back to our normal lives. Until then, we will happily delight in these quarantine-themed cakes from Chicago pastry genius Emily Nejad, owner of Bon Vivant Cakes. Available for no-contact delivery, each confection comes emblazoned with cheeky phrases, like “Can’t Touch This” and “Free the TP.” How sweet.
We don’t know who needs to hear this but…
Now's not the time to experiment with bangs. Or is it?
