Let’s start with the obvious one. If you’ve yet to experience Chicago’s infamous and largest fall festival, you’re in luck! Jack’s Pumpkin Pop-Up has returned to Goose Island for its fifth year through November 5th. Save yourself a trip to the suburbs and head to Jack’s instead where you can get lost in Chicago’s largest corn maze, challenge your partner in an axe throwing competition, and finally indulge in those delicious fall treats you’ve been dreaming about since June. The jack’s experience is truly the best of fall all wrapped into one!

Get A Taste of Autumn In Italy At Sur La Table

There’s nothing more romantic than an Italian dinner with the one you love most, but wouldn’t it be great if you could bring that romance to your own table? We know firsthand cooking is not everyone’s forte, but it’s never too late to learn. At Sur La Table’s “Date Night” class, you and your partner’s tastebuds will be taken on a journey through Italy as you learn how to cook an authentic, seasonal dinner. The class is taught by a professional chef who will teach you the tricks of the trade all while getting to meet and mingle with other couples. You're sure to learn a little something to impress your soon-to-be hubby or wifey on your next date night in! Check out the next event in Chicago on Friday, October 27th! 

Get Your Drink On At Lincoln Park Wine Fest

If there’s one neighborhood that absolutely shines in autumn, it’s Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park is home to some of Chicago’s most beautiful architecture and its residents spare no expense when it comes to Halloween decorations. There’s only one thing that could make a stroll through Lincoln Park with your fiance better. Wine! Lincoln Park’s annual open-air wine fest is returning to Jonquil Park this October and will showcase a number of grape varietals and food pavilions. It will be the best sip and stroll you’ve ever had!

Transport To Paris For Lunch At Le Bouchon

Not all of us have the luxury of an engagement spent in Paris, but at Le Bouchon, you can get pretty close! Le Bouchon is consistently ranked as one of the best French restaurants in the country and its home none other than Chicago. With its ample wine list and ever so popular onion tart, we certainly understand why! The charming bistro is truly Parisian in its size, but it sets the tone for an intimate dining experience that you and your lover will never forget. We promise it will be worth the wait!
