Chicago Air & Water Show 2014

8050922420_439952c1a8_k
For fun and frolic Saturday and Sunday August 16 – 17, 2014, join the throngs of people in downtown Chicago for the aerial dynamics of the best and the brightest. Once every year, Chicagoans can enjoy the spectacular feats of the Blue Angels and the Golden Knights as they show us what they are made of. This year’s show, the 56th annual, will be better than ever.

Crowds will be lined along the lakefront with North Avenue Beach as the jumping-off spot. Get downtown early to stake out your spot for a full day of aeronautical adventures.

Bring the kids

Everyone from Grandma to toddlers will be wowed by the teams as the U.S. Blue Angels fly loop-de-loops through the clouds while the U.S. Golden Knights show how parachuting is done. Your kids will be inspired by the gravity-defying maneuvers in the air and amazed at the perfect landings of the paratroopers.

Military derring-do

Lake Michigan will also host the astounding jumping skills of the Navy Leap Frogs as they springboard out of an airplane 12,500 feet above the water at speeds of over 120 mph. The long history of the Chicago and Water Show debuted in 1946 and it is still going strong.

View aircraft

Get a closer look at the Air Force F-22 fighter jet and Marine MV-22 Osprey helicopter while the show is going on. These truly impressive aircraft will be on display for visitors to examine during show hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Free admission

With free admission, you and your family can enjoy the last few days of summer before school is back in session. Come into the city and spend a day of it, checking out new restaurants and seeing the sights. Directions and additional information are available at chicagoairandwatershow.us.

Chicago rescue teams

Chicago rescue teams will also be performing for the audience throughout both days. The Chicago Fire Department will show off their skills along with its specialized Helicopter Air Sea Rescue unit. The aerial show will be evident in the skies all around the center of Chicago, but to see the water show, you will have to get closer to the lakefront. Teams on the lake will be boat jumping, water skiing and demonstrating how they rescue boaters using their unique training.

Flying in formation

It will be tough to keep from bumping into people on Saturday and Sunday as so many will have their noses in the air. But, how can you not watch the awesome formations of the Blue Angels as they pilot through the sky. The Blue Angels are truly the creme of the crop and each pilot will have his name painted on the side of his Boeing F/A-18 Hornet.

Transportation

If you are too far out to walk to the show, you can get downtown via taxi, bus or car. But if a car is too cumbersome for city driving, alternative travel help can be arranged through The BusBank.

Lagunitas Taproom Now Open In Chicago!

party bus beerIn a city filled with countless world class breweries, its time to add another to the list! After months of anticipation Lagunitas opened the doors to their taproom late last month in Douglas Park, just a short drive or train ride from downtown Chicago! They are open from 11 am to 9 pm Wednesday through Sunday and while they do have a kitchen, the menu is pretty small but will have something for everyone.

The taproom gives view to the inside of the brewery while seating about 300 people mostly at communal tables which is seeming to be becoming more commonplace at taprooms. Over the last several weeks I have heard nothing but great things about the new Lagunitas Taproom here in Chicago, it is a must do if you’re a lover of beer!

The BusBank charters countless party buses each week, more and more we are seeing groups that want to go around the city to check out the best breweries. So make sure when you book your party bus from us to add this stop to the list!

Cheers!

sheffield garden walkWeather aside, we are now in full swing of summer here in Chicago although it may not seem like it with all of this rain we’ve been getting. Regardless, hopefully this rain now will make your weekend more enjoyable. Especially if you plan on attending the 46th Annual Sheffield Garden Walk & Music Festival in Lincoln Park this Saturday or Sunday July 19th & 20th respectively.

The Sheffield Garden Walk is one of Chicago’s longest running street festivals and anyone who has attended to can attest to why. The Sheffield Garden Walk is much more than the typical street festival with music, food and beer. Sure, it has all of those but where it truly stands apart from other Chicago street festivals is that you get the opportunity embark on unguided (between noon and 5:30pm) and guided (3:30pm) tours through some of the most beautiful and historic properties in the Lincoln Park neighborhood!

Gardens not your thing? That’s okay, because the Sheffield Garden Walk is full of musical acts this year! The Fullerton Stage is new this year and will play host to 8 bands throughout the weekend, several of whom who will play multiple sets. The main stage will have acts starting at or around 6pm both Saturday and Sunday nights. For the full lineup please visit the official website.

Want to try some new craft beer? You’re in luck, this year the expanded Chicago Craft Beer Festival is being hosted in tandem to the Sheffield Garden Walk! For a fee you will be able to try 15 different beers in 3 oz. pours. The full brewery lineup has not yet been released but you can fully expect many Chicago breweries to be highlighted!

No matter what you’re looking for the Sheffield Garden Walk is sure to deliver as a street festival. With only a $10 suggested donation to gain entry, you really have no excuse to not check out one of the best festivals in Chicago this summer!

Will You FALL In Love With Niagara?

niagara falls bus tour

People that have traveled to Niagara Falls, NY can attest as to why it has been given the title of one of the seven natural wonders of North America! Separating Canada from The United States, the Niagara River drains Lake Erie in to Lake Ontario with an average flow of more than 4 million cubic feet of water per minute, the largest flow rate of any waterfall in the world! It is quite a spectacle when witnessed in person.

The location of the falls, situated between Canada and New York allows for less than a  half days drive from Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Ontario for the more than 30 million annual visitors. The falls, a mere 17 miles from Buffalo, NY or a short 70 mile drive from Toronto both allow you to arrive in less than an hour! Visitors are free to enjoy opposing views from both the United States and Canadian sides but please remember to bring a valid passport or you will be denied entry to cross the border without one!

There is so much to do here for a day trip but the most historic tour to take while visiting Niagara Falls is to embark on a Maid of The Mist boat tour! Tours started running in 1846 and have been going strong ever since! Currently Maid of The Mist fleet includes 2, 600 passenger vessels to accommodate patrons, named the Maid in The Mist VI and VII respectively. Trips start every 15 minutes and is the best way to get a up close view of Niagara Falls!

On a personal note, please make sure to wear your the rain poncho that they hand out! I still remember doing this as a kid and refusing to wear the provided poncho, subsequently, I ended up absolutely drenched as the boat creeped towards the falls. On the bright side, it was a hot day and it felt pretty good at the time!

If you’re are thinking of taking a trip to Niagara Falls either on the US or Canadian side, please feel free to contact us and arrive in style!

We get many different answers from clients as to why they would like to start offering an employee shuttle, commonly we get the following answers:

1)      They are seeing increased productivity from employees who have the opportunity to get work completed while relaxing on the employee shuttle buses.

2)      Improved overall wellness from removing the stress of commuting to and from work, people seem to be much happier and tend to demonstrate higher workplace satisfaction than before the shuttle was in place.

3)      Offer the ability to reduce your company’s carbon footprint. By offering employee shuttle services, many gallons of gas will be saved.

Companies who pursue the use of employee shuttles often utilize them for a vast number of reasons but we often get requests for corporate use. However, it is not uncommon to see employee shuttles used for any of the following:

1)      Office relocation, when a temporary new office is needed or a parking lot is not accessible.

2)      Dual campuses, when employees must move between buildings that are not close enough together to walk to/from.

3)      Large construction projects, where often no on-site parking is not available for workers.
