    From darkened storefronts to empty festival grounds, coronavirus has turned the hospitality world on its head. And, in the absence of a vaccine, the long-term outlook isn’t much different. 

    In the first chapter of our exploration of Chicago’s new normal, we’re looking at how stay-at-home has completely reshaped what it means to go out. In a conversation moderated by Kate Sullivan, leaders in Chicago’s world-renowned hospitality and entertainment industries will examine how they have reinvented their approaches overnight, developing innovative solutions to stay afloat in turbulent waters. 

    Looking ahead to the approaching summer season—usually a busy time for the industry—we’ll take a close look at what the future of going out will look like in a world redefined by COVID-19.
