1.) Eat at Buffalo Joe’s
If you like buffalo wings, you’re going to LOVE Buffalo Joe’s. I’ve been going to Buffalo Joe’s ever since I was a little kid (I’m 23 now) and my mouth still waters just thinking about the savory, buttery goodness of the famous Buffalo Joe’s wing sauce. Oh, and let’s not forget that the quality of the chicken wings is good, too. Really good. One bite and you’re hooked; trust me. This Evanston staple is sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Price: $8.49 (approx. 10-12 wings) –> Click here to go to the official Buffalo Joe’s Website.
Pro Tip: If you’re in the mood for some real bold, fiery flavor, the “suicide” wings are topped with a layer of jalapeño peppers. Oh, and they have waffle fries, too.
2.) Attend a Northwestern Athletics Event

3.) Check out the Grosse Point Lighthouse
Grosse Point Lighthouse was built by the United States Government in 1873 as the lead lighthouse marking the approach to Chicago after several shipwrecks demonstrated its need. The promontory on which it stands was named Grosse Point (Great Point) by early French explorers and traders in the 17th century. Over the years, the U.S. Government dropped the French “e” on Point. (Information provided by Grosse Point Lighthouse).
The Lighthouse is now owned and operated by the Lighthouse Park District and is open for tours.
Price: $6 for adults, $3 for children aged 8-12
4.) Charles Gates Dawes House
The Charles Gates Dawes House is the lakefront mansion of the former United States Vice President, Charles Gates Dawes. Dawes also served as a General during World War I and a U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain. 26 years before his death in 1951, Gates Dawes received a Nobel Peace Prize for his plan to alleviate the burden of war reparations Germany had to pay because due to its aggression in World War I.
