Get ready to sleep around River North

SHARE Get ready to sleep around River North

Ever thought you could be on the “Amazing Race,” but worried about what effect a trek around the world might have on your relationship with your partner (not to mention your job)? You can experience the rush without the extended commitment during the River North Sleep Around Challenge on Thursday, May 6.

Teams of four (you can sign up as a team or individually), will begin a tour around the neighborhood, solving puzzles, answering quizzes, taking pictures and touring hotels. Prizes include an overnight stay in a King suite at the Amalfi Hotel, four tickets to a hit show from Broadway in Chicago and an American Girl overnight package from Embassy Suites Chicago. Participating hotels, many of which are offering special rates for the night, include the dana hotel and spa, Hotel Felix and the new Hotel Palomar, and Martini Park will host an after-party at 8:30 p.m. Registration starts at 5 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza ($35 per individual, $135 for a team of four).
