September is off to a great start in Chicago!

 We began the week with Bocce Ball and $4 burgers. And no, they were not small dinky patties, but full size delicious juicy burgers that are regularly priced at $11. Our guys vs gals bocce battles were pretty intense! We all learned a thing or two about the game. The weather was beautiful on Wednesday for sand volleyball in Grant Park as well as Thursday outdoor movie night. The showing was a remake of the American classic, Footloose. It was a great movie to conclude our monthly summer “movies in the park” series. We all shared snacks, drinks and good company. Some of us even danced our way to the car! Come out soon to see what the rest of the month has in store for you!

Scavenger Hunt Downtown Chicago!

 When you live in a big city, sometimes it’s easy to forget the little gems that make it so great.  The Chicago E&A’ers got a chance to participate in our first ever Scavenger Hunt!  We broke up into teams and ran all over downtown Chicago, searching for landmarks and collecting interesting information.  Did you know the sculpture at Millennium Park that we lovingly call “The Bean” is actually named Cloud Gate?  Who knew?!  We also learned that it is not as easy to find a book of matches as it might have been a few years ago, am I right Scavenger Hunters?  We roared with the lions at the Art Institute, interviewed each other in front of ABC Studios, and blew bubble gum bubbles in front of the Wrigley Building, and that’s only scratching the surface!  After a day like that how could we not feel proud to call Chicago our home!
