Miss A Columnist

Colleen McNicholas is a Chicago South Sider who frequently wanders the streets of the windy city. She is always on the lookout for the best food and adventures this city has to offer. She is a Columbia College Chicago grad and is a marketing/PR professional. A few years ago, Colleen realized how many limitations she was putting on her life and decided she needed a change. She created a bucket list back in 2011 and has been following that bucket list ever since. Now, Colleen finally feels like she is living the life she has always wanted. When not working, volunteering, or trying new restaurants, she enjoys playing the guitar, fashion, going to concerts, running races, and meeting new people. Colleen is also a big thrill seeker: from extreme zip lining, to helicopter rides, to whale watching in Alaska, all the way to skydiving. Colleen wants to inspire people to take risks, try new things, and enjoy every second of life.

Ask Miss A readers! We are so excited to announce that Randolph Street Market in Chicago has a fun weekend planned for you. March 28-29, 2015 will be their FINAL indoor market until summer. Despite getting snow recently, Randolph Street Market is here to bring on the spring! Easter will be here soon so the event will be offering FREE admission to those wearing Easter bonnets at the door. An Easter Egg Hunt will be going on all through the weekend and there will also be plenty of delicious treats and some great bargains going on.

Ask Miss A writers have always been big fans of Randolph Street Market and appreciate their dedication to helping out many different charities. This year, the market will be welcoming a charity from Bridgeport, Project Onward. Project Onward will be showcasing their art at all of Randolph Street Market’s events.
