Tonight's the night! The weather is warmer and Lincoln Park's First Thursday's is how to celebrate. Explore the new shops in the neighborhood until 9PM with cocktails, deals and discounts. Your itinerary tonight should include Thread Lounge, Frimson, Comfort Me, Shop 857, Rara Avis and Fortunate Discoveries who is doing a furniture giveaway. The action happens on Armitage, though you'll find a few stray party-goers/sale-shoppers on Halsted. [Racked Inbox]
