Don’t succumb to post-summer sadness – it’s time to layer up and get excited for football, falling leaves, and all things pumpkin. There’s nothing better than fall in Chicago, and the change of seasons provides a great opportunity for co-workers to reconnect in new ways. Here are 5 ways your team can bond this fall:

  1. Say “prost!” to Oktoberfest
