The Beatles. Prince. Bruce Springsteen. KISS. All have made rock history with guitars (and occasionally, face paint). And this is your chance to own guitars signed by them. Because they did not sign any bottles of face paint.

Gibsons Italia Wants You to Come Play on Its Roof
And Don't Forget the Fleetwood Mac Pop-Up. Or Your Mom.By Pearl Plotkin
This Rooftop Isn't Private Anymore
What was once a private event space is now a breezy spot to sip martinis and dine on beef carpaccio overlooking the city. Indeed, Gibsons Italia is opening its rooftop to everyone so you can eat fancy finger foods and bask in the sun under a retractable glass roof. Sun permitting.
Eat Here. Drink Here. Exercise Here.
It looks like a resort. Feels like a resort. And yet, it's just North Avenue Beach. The Shore Club has returned for the season with a snazzy upgrade featuring an island-inspired patio serving Mediterranean dishes, frozen libations (hello, Frozignon Blanc), plus weekly fitness programs. Twist.
Gin, Tarot Cards and Fleetwood Mac
Enter the Rookery for an evening of majestic Fleetwood Mac-inspired cocktails, a tarot card reader and the beckoning of the Celtic Moon Goddess, Rhiannon. Will your favorite drink be the Landslide? The Black Magic Woman with activated charcoal, gin and lychee liqueur? Anyway, Fleetwood Mac pop-up.
She Gave Birth to You, Now Treat Her to Some Tea and Petit Fours
Mother's Day: still happening. And to that end, take her out for an afternoon of sipping tea in the Virgin Hotels Chicago Commons Club. As a unique iteration of their weekly Upside Down Tea Party, enjoy a special pop-up shop from jewelry designer Kendra Scott, blended satchels of tea from Jenway and champagne. Of course there's champagne.
Mother's Day Brunch + Flowery Portraits = This
If you still need Mother's Day brunch plans, consider City Mouse's featuring anything from roasted asparagus with egg yolk jam to chocolate glazed strawberry Old Fashioned donuts. Then, head over to the Gallery where Chicago photographer, Jen Jansen will take photos of you and mom. Gift: check. Activity: check.
