Discover Chicago with Sosh

sosh.com/?ref=blog_asquared One of the most wonderful things about living in a city like Chicago is that there is always something to do: a cool show to see, a fun street festival to attend, or a fabulous new restaurant opening on any given day in any given neighborhood. This, however, can also be one of the most overwhelming things about big city life. How do you choose?

There are tons of apps and websites out there that will tell you what's going on in your city, but it can be tricky to wade through all of those items that don't interest you. Wouldn't it be great if someone could filter out the boring things and just tell you what's happening that might interest you? Enter Sosh.

Sosh is a fun new lifestyle app that pulls together all of the coolest things to do in your city-- and it launched in Chicago this week! The app customizes its suggestions based on your experiences and your preferences. Once you download and launch the app it will prompt you to select your favorite neighborhoods: West Loop? Check. Wicker Park? Check. And then your favorite things to do: Craft Beer? Check. Fit for Foodies? Check. Dancing? No thanks. And just like that, Sosh will start curating a list of events, restaurants, and venues especially for you.


You can bookmark suggestions that you'd like to try out and you can also view how many other Sosh users have bookmarked it as well. If you've already done something, you can check it off your list or let Sosh know that you did it or that you loved it-- and you can leave tips for other users too. When you do that, the app will start tailoring its future suggestions for you based on things that you have already done and enjoyed. Pretty cool, right?

I have had the chance to give the app a test drive over the past week and I have been having so much fun with it! Over the weekend, for example, Alex and I were checking out some open houses in the Bucktown and Wicker Park areas and suddenly it was 2 PM and we were starving for lunch. I pulled up my Sosh app, did a quick search for "lunch wicker park," and poof! A variety of options selected especially for me (and located within blocks of where we were standing) were lined up for me to pick from. I scrolled through, found Lillie's Q (bookmarked by several other Sosh users too) and we headed over for an amazing barbecue lunch.


As I mentioned, Sosh launched in Chicago this week so be sure to check it out! You can sign up on the web here or download the free app here. And don't forget to follow me on Sosh! I'm constantly updating my profile with my favorite places and events and I would love to share them with you!
