A studio in the center of it all, but so quiet...IF... you want to race into the city to see a play, go for a jog along the lake, have a quick coffee with a friend or enjoy a fine restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, it's all here in the lovely lakeside town of EVANSTON, IL. You can enjoy it all while living in my studio apartment w/private kitchen, private bath, private entry, shared laundry area and......., if you need it, garage parking, too! Enjoy my garden on warm summer days; in winter, you will love the heated floor!

  • Forge a Silver Ring with a Silversmith
    At this time, I am requiring all guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to provide proof of vaccination. In this workshop, you'll make a sterling silver ring through the silversmithing "fabrication" technique. Learn the basics of texturing metal, forming metal with mandrels and hammers, soldering (yes, you'll play with fire!), and decorative finishing and leave with a beautiful handmade ring that will last a lifetime! This is not just some craft project. You will be working on the same tools that I use myself as a professional silversmith and your ring will be professional quality. It's always a fun evening! You'll be floored by what you can create! Other things to note: You will get plenty of ideas for rings during the class. I also encourage you to look at the photos in this experience as well as guest photos for ideas!

  • Trickery Chicago Magic Show
    Chicago’s most entertaining magic show! Fun, intimate, sometimes outrageous, and always hilarious. Door opens 15 minutes prior to scheduled start time. Venue is BYOB for guests 21+. Cups and bottle openers are available if needed. We do not stock ice but there is a 7-Eleven just down the street (3407 N Halsted). Performance runs approximately 1 hour. This experience is ongoing. Future dates will be continually added. Also available for private appointments by request (Monday-Sunday). For corporate bookings: Great for groups, great for teams, and great for team building! Please note that Airbnb is a third party partner for marketing Trickery’s show. Guests find us through various avenues so there may ultimately be as many as 30 audience members for any given showtime. City of Chicago’s only reopening guideline at this time is a mask mandate. We are a BYOB venue so guests may remove face coverings for drinking. Social distancing is not a local requirement or feasible in our space. If uncomfortable being around strangers, this experience may not be for you.

  • Sail Chicago's Lakefront on a Yacht
    Our sailing experience begins at Monroe Harbor right in downtown Chicago. Guests will enjoy a captained cruise on our luxury class sailing yacht, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37. We will cast off and motor out to Lake Michigan where we will set sail to a favorable course. Bring your favorite food and drinks, listen to music, relax, and take in the views of our city’s iconic buildings from the lakefront. The courageous can try their hand at the helm and rigging the sails-Captain Greg is a volunteer sailing instructor for a local non-profit and enjoys sharing his knowledge. On hot days be sure to bring a bathing suit to swim in the lake to cool off. Please feel free to inquire about custom bookings. We have hosted engagements, bachelorette parties, corporate outings and many more memorable events! Other things to note New friends will join your booking unless you reserve the entire boat. We only wait 15 minutes for a late guest out of courtesy for timely guests. We only cancel for lightning and will refund everyone. If you tend to get motion/seasick, or have a hangover, take motion medication 30 minutes prior.

  • Chicago Food Tour in River North
    We start with a very popular Chicago dish: the Chicago-style hot dog - which is taken very seriously by locals. Every Chicagoan has their own preference as to how the dog should be made, and you’ll get a chance to try my favorite version. Next up is the world-famous Chicago deep-dish pizza - an entire meal unto itself. I'll take you to a pizza place that’s an icon to Chicago natives to try the real deal for yourself. After you’ve filled up on pizza and hot dogs, we’ll stroll through two classic Chicago establishments. One is a uniquely Midwest phenomenon that is a sight to behold. The other stop is a restaurant born in Chicago and recognized by nearly everyone on earth - but this one is something special. We’ll then continue our tasting journey with a classic Chicago sandwich: Italian beef. You’ll sample this sandwich in a real city institution — no-frills decor included! Finally, it’s time for something sweet inside a truly local hangout. Here, you’ll enjoy a dessert, relax, and purchase a beverage of your choice. If you would like to book this tour for a private group, please message us directly for more information.

We'll take you to Picasso, Miró, Dalí, Warhol, Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and we can guide you in the direction where to go later. P.D: If you do not have a smart phone we can use ours and send pictures later. So no problem at all!!
