Every Michigan Avenue shopper needs a break - especially when you have little children in your crew. We like to visit Santa Claus at 900 North Michigan Avenue: He's the most photogenic Santa out there, with a natural beard. The lines here are rarely loooooonnnng, and Santa sits on a fancy Santa-quality throne with a 40 ft. tree as a backdrop. Not to mention, he also gifts every kid - whether you pay for a photo or not - with a sweet little stuffy. While you're at 900 North Michigan Ave., step on over to the Four Seasons for some complimentary chestnuts roasting on an open fire, available from 5 to 7 p.m. daily, from Nov. 26-Dec. 30 at the Seasons Lounge. Order an ultra-fancy hot cocoa for the kids; Mom and Dad may need to indulge in a festive cocktail such as the Frosty the Snowtini or Ebenezer's Egg Nog.
