Using Happenstance is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3.
1. Select Your Tastes
Choose what kind of stories you'd like to hear from our editorial pillars: arts, food, landmarks and sports. If you love food, but hate sports! No problem. Hear the unique stories (we lovingly call them Haps) about Chicago that are specific to your selected tastes.
2. Explore Your Surroundings
Our Haps are limited to a one-mile radius, encouraging you to explore new areas of the city and see what other stories are hiding just around the corner.
3. Enjoy Your Haps
That's it!! Happenstance runs in the background, so just walk about your day and you'll receive a push notification whenever one of our Haps are nearby. Just listen, learn and share! Our content is all exclusive to our library, created by us or for us by one of our awesome neighborhood content partners.
