Swashbuckling on Chicago's Lake Michigan

Five new employees started all around the same time last month, so we decided to combine our welcome parties into one big hurrah. Travelling to the eastern seas of the Midwest (i.e. Lake Michigan) we sallied forth into the unknown waters of pirating. Below, a few of my fellow welcome party recipients share their favorite parts of the adventure. “DMC now has one more area of expertise to add to its repertoire; sailing tall ships! We were trained by what we are sure was a real-life pirate...

'Lions, Tigers, and Brews' Proves Fun Despite Blustery Day

When the opportunity arose to go to the already-awesome Lincoln Park Zoo in order to taste 150 plus awesome beers, I knew many at DMC couldn’t resist.

First we tried out some of the bigger, more popular breweries such as Founders and Goose Island. We experienced these old familiars under the watchful eye of the tiger, who was outside watching the...
