Our Editor’s Afternoon on Southport Avenue

Read next

In what seemed like the blink of an eye, Southport Avenue in Lakeview became the most family-friendly street in Chicago. We spent a recent afternoon there and soaked up everything from a new community market to a hidden-gem park to an out-of-this-world barbershop. Flip through our photo album to see what editor Kelly and her two five-year-olds did on their afternoon blitz. Then get out there and choose your own adventure.

Treat: Candyality

Confession: We're not above offering bribes. Mom stocked up on sweet rewards at <a target="_blank" href="http://candyality.com/&quot; target="_blank">Candyality</a>, a colorful sugar den that sells everything from lollipops to licorice to milk chocolate. The biggest hit was mix-and-match candy sold by the pound. We readied ourselves for a gummy bear overdose. Find it at 3425 N. Southport Ave. (773-472-7800).fuck
