Let’s be honest. It isn’t always easy making new friends as an adult. In fact, it can sometimes be a bit awkward at times. Luckily, Jesi, Peggy, and I were introduced to CLIQ.

What is CLIQ you ask? Well, it’s a new social app that helps connect people by breaking down the barriers. Let’s face it. When you go out with the same group of people every weekend, it is bound to get boring. The CLIQ app is all about bring people together to try new things, meet new people, and create new experiences that turn into lifelong memories.

CLIQ is all about enjoying and exploring your city with friends and meeting some interesting new ones along the way. The app not only helps connect different groups of people, but also gives you recommendations of fun activities to try out around the city. There are even a few perks along the way including free cover to a club, free drinks, or even free concert tickets {oh yeah!}.

There are so many fun activities around the city {especially during the festive month of December}, so today, Jesi, Peggy, and I are rounding up a few of our favorites with CLIQ:

1. Christkindlemarket at Daley Plaza
2. ZooLights & BrewLights at Lincoln Park Zoo
3. Ice Skating at Millennium Park
4. The Nutcracker at The Joffrey Ballet
5. The Polar Express Train Ride at Union Station
6. Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier
7. Christmas Decorations & Dinner at Club Lucky
8. A Christmas Carol at The Goodman Theater
9. Christmas Around the World at the Museum of Science & Industry
10. Sauced Night Market in Logan Square
