Get Your Kicks and Food Fix on Route 66

Deskpass Gives Access to a Giant Co-Working Network

If your work office is too noisy or your home office is in too much disarray to actually get anything done, there’s an app for that. It’s called Deskpass, from a Chicagobased company called Desktime, and it offers a subscription platform providing an online directory of 25 co-working spaces you can reserve with the tap of a button.

For $199 a month you can have a different workspace every day, or for $99 you can reserve a new space eight days out of the month.

In a partnership of the restaurant group, concert organizers Joe’s on Weed Street and the Windy City Smokeout festival comes Bub City & Joe’s Live.

Team-building Venues Offer Activities for Every Kid at Heart

It was a sight even Blue Harbor Resort’s Susan Engler couldn’t believe. The sun had set, and a group of corporate lawyers that the director of sales had seen earlier in the day in their suits and ties were now frolicking on the glow-in-the-dark mini golf course.
