Chicago Athletic Association
12 S. Michigan Ave., 312-940-3552
While the Chicago Athletic Association’s Cones of Chaos pop-up event isn’t specifically inspired by Lollapalooza, the historic hotel is right across the street from Grant Park, which makes it pretty convenient. The event offers vegan ice cream in a number of different varieties from Cindy’s executive pastry chef Jove Hubbard, with flavors like farm strawberry, pistachio roasted cherry, dark chocolate oak milk and coconut vanilla. Cones will run you $6 for a single scoop and $9 for a double.
There will also be some other frozen treats: matcha and farm strawberry mochi ($6), a mango chile paleta ($6) and blueberry coconut macaron and double chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches ($6). The pop-up is located at the CAA side entrance along Madison Street. The specials last from 1 to 4 p.m. from Thursday through Sunday.
