TAP-Chicago members will be pairing up with children from Horizons for Youth (grades K-7) as they explore the miniature city and explore a variety of careers by role-playing.
All the real badass NFL teams play outdoor in the snow! This is your chance to be as badass as Briggs, Urlacher, Suggs, Von Miller, JPP, oh, and Sam Gordon (for the ladies out there). Join TAP-Chicago for a fun-filled night of coed flag football…in the snow! (But with my luck, it’s going to be nice, sunny, and only slightly chilly.) We made a few changes to the rules. These rules are designed to facilitate a fun, female friendly game, and a good workout. Please ask if anything is unclear. (more…)
