On November 5, 2020, "Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced a new initiative aimed at supporting bars and restaurants as indoor dining has once again been halted amid a surge of coronavirus cases across the city and state. 'Take Out Chicago' is designed to help boost the struggling hospitality industry by offering residents who order take out from 10 different bars and restaurants between now and Dec. 15 entry into a contest to win a VIP tour to various places like Soldier Field and the Art Institute.
Residents who wish to enter the contest should submit their names and a list of the places they ordered take out from using a portal on the city’s website":

The Rizal Community Center is a multicultural, multigenerational community and cultural center located in Chicago's Lakeview neiighborhood! But it's more than a building. It's a revitalized way of thinking about who we are and how we engage with our community, our neighborhood, and our city.
The Rizal Community Center is a welcoming, dynamic place for people of all backgrounds to come together and participate in cultural experiences that nourish by inspiring learning and dialogue; foster bridging, appreciation, and understanding; celebrate our vibrant, diverse communities, and place in pluralistic American society; and call upon us to help nurture a more just and equitable society.
We do this through relevant programming in arts and culture, civic engagement, public policy, community education, and Filipino life; meaningful service to combat food insecurity and to empower people.
The Rizal Community Center operates under the aegis of the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago, one of the oldest cultural organizations in the nation.
