Check out Masoulah, a Roger’s Park Gem!

1st March

Masouleh is one of the most unique restaurants I have been to in Rogers Park and I can’t wait to go back! It’s right off of Clark street, is very clean, and they even have jars of homemade pickled vegetable mixes for sale.

The couple who owns it are absolutely adorable and extremely nice! When I wasn’t sure what to order they answered all of my questions (many questions) and made me feel right at home. Beautiful photography from Iran is featured on the brick walls with middle eastern decor in an urban atmosphere.

Near the Morse Red Line stop!

Excerpt from website: The Field Columbian Museum opened to the public on June 2, 1894. Originally conceived as a commemoration of the Fair, not as a natural history institution, it became a source of civic pride. Over time, certain departments were eliminated, such as Industrial Arts, forming the natural history museum you know today.

Tickets: And all the permanent exhibitions! $31 for adults, $21 for children (3-11), and $25 for students and seniors (65+)  Read more on the website…
