CHICAGO -- If you need a break from the cold weather of winter, there are two places right here in Chicago that will help you escape.
One is a suburban tropical oasis in North Riverside that has been serving up Asian-fusion food and tropical drinks since 1976. It's called Chef Shangri-La and it has fan favorites like live entertainment and hula dancers.
The other is a tiki bar in Logan Square called Lost Lake with some retro vibes and exotic drinks. Ji shows Ryan and Val a boozy, sharable Lost Lake drink called the "Fogcutter" but the bar is also known for other cocktails like the "Tic-Tac-Taxi" and the banana daiquiri.
