Take caution, Chicago. Summer is nearly over. We’re not entirely sure what happened to June, July or August, but with Labor Day just a few days away, we’re suddenly feeling a lot of pressure to cram a slew of summer activities into the holiday weekend. We’re planning a few days filled with an evening at the Jazz Fest, a party or two, and perhaps an impromptu trip to the lake. Although we’re a bit wary of what we might find in the water (like a curious construction barrier, as shown in abmarfia’s photo above), a day of sand and sea sounds decidedly preferable to a day in the office.

What are your plans for the holiday?
