Michigan Avenue - - THE SOURCE: SCENE -

WHO: Di­rec­tor, Graff Di­a­monds (103 E. Oak St., 312-604-1000; graff di­a­monds.com). FAVE ’HOOD: “The Gold Coast, es­pe­cially with the re­nais­sance hap­pen­ing in the Oak Street area. It is the ul­ti­mate in lux­ury, easy to walk around, and has a small neigh­bor­hood feel.” IN­SPIRED AR­CHI­TEC­TURE: “The Har­ris The­ater (205 E. Ran­dolph St., 312334-7777; har­risthe­ater­chicago.org). The build­ing de­sign bril­liantly con­nects the city with an open-air feel in the mid­dle of Mil­len­nium Park.” SUM­MER LOVES: “Walks along the lake­front or a pic­nic at Ravinia (200 Ravinia Park Road, High­land Park, 847-266-5100; ravinia.org). Just tak­ing the time for a short walk along the lake makes you feel like you have had a lit­tle get­away.” LO­CAL IN­DUL­GENCE: “I don’t re­ally get that much ‘me time,’ so es­cap­ing to the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art (220 E. Chicago Ave., 312-280-2660; mcachicago.org) for an hour to see the lat­est ex­hibit or a per­for­mance is my es­cape.” EV­ERY VIS­I­TOR SHOULD: “Take the Chicago Ar­chi­tec­ture Boat Tour (cruisechicago.com/ar­chi­tec­ture-tours). Def­i­nitely my all-time fa­vorite thing to do in the city. There truly is no bet­ter way to see 20th- and 21st-cen­tury ar­chi­tec­ture at its best in one city.”
