Everyone’s busy this time of year, so I thought you could use a money-saving gift tip and info about fun outdoor skating alternatives to MILLENIUM PARK.

In one tab, go to RESTAURANT.COM’S web site, to look up nearby restaurants by zip code or city, so you can get an idea of what restaurants accept their coupons.  If you like what you see, open another tab, and go to this COUPON CABIN link with promo codes for RESTAURANT.COM.  After you click on the online coupon for $1 for $25 gift certificates, it will take you to a RESTAURANT.COM link where you can continue your transaction.  You will be able to send your gift certificate via email or print it out.  Somewhere along the way it will ask you if you want to spend another $2 for another $25 gift certificate, so it will end up costing you $3 for two $25 gift certificates.  It’s a great deal that expires 12/24.

Here is a link to SOME FREE skating rinks in Chicago including RIIS PARK, WARREN PARK, and MILLENIUM PARK downtown.  For admission to the free skating rinks, you need to bring your own skates.  However, some skating rinks do charge whether you bring your own skates or not like they do at WRIGLEY FIELD. 

I hope you, your family, and friends enjoy a memorable and Happy Holiday and a healthy and prosperous New Year!

Fun Family Events & Why It’s the Best Time to Own Rental Property

A few of my clients have asked about purchasing rental properties, so I thought I would pass on a Wall Street Journal article about the strong rental market where national vacancy rates are 5.6%:  the lowest rate since 2006.

Since the holidays are here, I also thought you could also use something fun to do with your family.  The Chicago Park District has events all over the city some of which are free.  I’m including links to a free one at the North Park Village Nature Center, a paid one for chocolate lovers at Shabonna Park, and a link to the calendar of events main page.

I hope you, your family, and friends enjoy memorable and Happy Holidays!
