But, planning trips can be so frustrating especially when your kids seem bored and are begging for new ideas on something fun to do.

Eli’s Cheesecake Welcomes Eddie & Jobo of B96 to their new studio at Two Prudential Plaza
After more than 50 years at the converted stables at 630 N. McClurg Court, the CBS Radio Stations have moved. Today it was our pleasure to salute Eddi & Jobo, the morning co-hosts on B96 FM with their move this week to new studios at Two Prudential Plaza overlooking Lake Shore East and Lake Michigan. What a change from the windowless bunker on McClurg Court to some very slick studios with picture windows just off Michigan Avenue.

Eli’s Marc Schulman presents a welcoming Eli’s Cheesecake to B96 morning team, Eddie Volkman, Joe Bohannon and Erica Cobb.

One of the great events of the summer in Chicago is the B96 Summer Bash. This year the Summer Bash is on June 24th at the new Bridgeview Stadium, which is home to the Chicago Fire. We are delighted the Happiness Club, which a group that we actively support, will be a participant thanks to Pepsi and B96.
