Planning on a rendezvous at the Swissotel Chicago this weekend? You've got company. From 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Shedd Aquarium experts will be bringing some slimy friends to the hotel's lobby for the Very Important Kids Animal Encounters event. Expected guests include a blue-tongued skink (pictured) and a 12-pound yellow-footed tortoise. No reservations are necessary.
