¨I really want to go to the Winter Wonder fest this year. I just have to save up some money before I go, especially since I like getting food after.” says Kennya Delgado ´20. 


There are many restaurants located at Navy Pier, so if you get hungry after a day full of activity that won’t be a problem. There is an array of options to choose from when browsing the pier. You can enjoy food such as Burgers from Tiny Tavern to seafood from Riva’s Crabhouse.  


¨I’m hoping my friends can get it together so we can all go and have a fun day over the break instead of just staying home the entire time. ¨
