Also don't be the only one without regalia to wear as the president of your personal fan club. Today's the last day to rent 'em!

You snailed it!

Shout out to all the Second Years and 1Y's who are staring down the last three weeks of B-school! It's the final countdown, and as we said above, the VERY LAST DAY to order tickets to the all Northwestern University Commencement (Kellogg's ceremony has unlimited tickets) and rent those very upscale bathrobes we call regalia. Unlike that bridesmaid dress in your closet, you probably can't shorten it and wear it again. Read on for where to book a table for dinner with your fam when it's all said and done.

Too busy to read all the way to the end of Daybreak? Don't worry, we've got an app for that! If you've got an Alexa, just say "Alexa, enable Daybreak," to include us in your daily news briefing. Then, say, "Alexa, read me my news," and you'll get all the best Kellogg news while you're brushing your teeth. Daybreak audio now coming to you thanks to our very own Sophie Ashton in collaboration with Matt St. John and Kellogg outsider Mike Johnson who created Verbstack, which enables users (like us) to create a custom experience on Alexa in under 10 minutes without needing to code.  

Spring-y mix

It's a mixed bag this weekend with some rain, some sun and some temperatures that will make you ask, "Do I really need a jacket?" every time you walk out the door. We will see a high of 62°F (17°C) and lows around 53°F (12°C). Expect that trend to continue through the weekend with showers predicted for Sunday.

Can we take you out to celebrate? 

Sweeter words were never spoken, and as you prepare to host parents, relatives and friends for graduation, chances are someone else MAY be picking up the tab for dinner. Maybe you're finally hitting up Alinea (instead of booking that flight to Europe), or maybe you're more interested in a burger with a side of nostalgia at Bat 17. For the reservation-less just realizing that graduation is mere weeks (yes, weeks) away, don't panic. We've got some graduation celebration dinner spots for you. 

  • The Barn. This Evanston hot-spot had us at "meat-centric dining experience." Menu here.
  • Gibson's Italia. Take your Godfather to this Steakhouse/Italian gem in River North. Menu here
  • The Girl and the Goat. A West Loop classic that takes "global" to a whole new level. If you can't get in, it's spin-off, The Little Goat Diner, is nearby. Menu here
  • Roister. If you've ever wondered, "How did they make that?" then this Fulton Market establishment where restaurant and kitchen combine is for you. Menu here
  • Peckish Pig. Head just south to Howard Avenue and nosh on everything from Kimchi Mac n' Cheese to an "Amazing Kale Burger." Oh, and lots of pork belly. Menu here
