our "chicago bucket list" keeps your "to do" list busy!

There are so many things to do, see, taste and experience in Chicago that we had to make a to do list (or a bucket list) just to get them all done! Our bucket list keeps growing, check back to see what new was added to our list of things to do in Chicago.


You'll be able to check off your own personal bucket list with Mingle Around as we explore everything Chicago has to offer while mingling with sexy, social singles. A singles event company like us doesn't just host a speed dating event and offer some matchmaking... we aim to FILL your social calendar with fun things to do that you've probably always wanted to do!


There is no cost to join Mingle Around and to start checking off items on your own Bucket List!
