New Ideas for Summer Outings that Millennials will Love (and families too!)

  • Food Truck Rally

Who doesn’t love food trucks?! Now add an outdoor location that is reserved exclusively for your team. It’s the perfect combination of great food and fun for all to enjoy. PIC coordinates with well-known Chicago Food Trucks and adds great summer entertainment (think baggo, bocce, giant jenga and music) to create an event that will get everyone in your office excited. Plus you don’t have to track down the Lobster Roll Truck and call around for the next available Donut Truck - PIC does that part for you!

  • Brunch in the Park

Bacon. Waffles. Custom omelets. More bacon. It's already sounding amazing! And honestly, a big percentage of your workforce is brunching on the weekends anyway. So why not offer your employees a day of free brunching along with lawn games, music and a great view of the skyline? If that isn’t enough, make your brunch utterly irresistible with bottomless mimosas and bloody marys.

  • Taste of Summer

Imagine a weekend street festival. Food stations, live music, inflatables to tire out the kids, games of skill and chance to engage the adults...now imagine all that without the crowds; an event exclusive to your employees and their families. PIC has the experience and the expertise to make a festival-style summer outing a real perk!
