Rosemont, Ill.: Things to do after the World's Fair of Money closes for the day

The World's Fair of Money will be held in Rosemont, Ill. The city once known as a low-key suburb has been making major changes to transform itself into a more desireable location for convention attendees. Annually, the suburb hosts numerous large scale conventions.

A major factor in the improvement to Rosemont's entertainment is the newly formed MB Financial Park at Rosemont. The MB Financial Park includes restaurants, pubs, bars, taverns, bowling, a movie theater and a comedy night club.


During the World's Fair of Money there will be two no-cost admission concerts held in the MB Financial Park area. The first concert, Thursday August 15, is part of the Rockin in the Park Free Summer Concert Series. Performing that night will be The Breakfast Club tribute band, which will play high energy '80s rock and dance music.


On August 17 Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill will host a concert headlined by country singer Allan Craig and the Nashville Machine.


Those wanting a quieter atmosphere can catch the latest new movies at the Muvico Theaters Rosemont 18. The theater offers an amazing digital viewing experience with reclining stadium-style seats, VIP specials, and a full-service restaurant and bar.


Looking for some laughs? Then Zanies is the spot you want to be, Aug. 14-17 Bret Ernst will be providing the laughs with his stand-up comedy act. Ernst has made national television appearances on Showtime, Comedy Centeral, Oxygen, BET, CBS, E!, Fox and ABC.

Another addition to the Rosemont area is the new Fashion Outlets of Chicago, which will be the first enclosed mall to be built in the Chicago area in more than a decade. The $250 million two-level mall totals 530,000 square feet and is set to open Aug. 1. Shops will include Bloomingdale's The Outlet Store, Gymboree Outlet, Aeropostale, Asics, Giorgio Armani, Guess Factory Store, Puma, Van Heusen, Under Armour, Prada, and many other stores. The mall is also a great option for those looking for a variety of food choices: It will host dozens of small eateries and feature two restaurants, Prasino and Villagio.
