District Brew Yard…they have a huge variety of beers that you can just go around and taste. You pour however much you want. It’s a big place with big tables and lots of board games.


Flight club is a good option but can get a bit pricey. You can also look at pinstripes. They have bowling and bocce


Shamrock on Kinzie. Dive bar with snack food and pitchers.


The Dawson


Centennial on lasalle has a great upstairs room that you can reserve!!

Metropolitan Brewing - right on the river and have a good sized space to rent

I just accepted an offer as a Web Developer for a great company. After 20 years in the restaurant I went to a coding bootcamp in March and am so happy to find a job one month after graduating.

I'm now very nervous about passing my background check. I have two DUI's, one in 2005 and one in 2015. I have never had a background check during my time in the restaurant industry.

Should I be worried? Should I let the hiring manager know beforehand so there are no surprises? Please help!

Looking for recruiting firms to help me find my next project / program management role.

Struggling to determine which firms can help with PM roles AND I'm struggling to get the ones I do find to respond to me. It may have something to do where I'm at in my career - 15+ years of PM experience & director-level roles at my last 2 companies - so more exec level but not quite C-Suite. Have tons of one-off recruiters hitting me up on LinkedIn about contract PM roles but that's not what I want.
