The dapper and professional chauffeurs behind Limos, Inc. transport wayfarers to weddings, airports, and events with their fleet of vehicles. While Lincoln Town Cars offer leather seating for up to three, stretch limos provide walnut accents, champagne chillers, and one-touch intercom systems for as many as 10. For groups in search of a mobile shindig, the 15-passenger party bus combines a black paint job with mysterious tinted windows that conceal an interior illuminated by neon lights. All vehicles come equipped with musical devices, such as radios, CD players, and player pianos.
The only thing better than tailgating with friends is tailgating with professional football players. At Corporate Tailgate, partygoers have the chance to toast and mingle with former Chicago Bears players during celebratory pre-game festivities held in the sprawling Adler Planetarium lot. As attendees trade game stats and toss around football-shaped watermelons, they can also savor chef-made meals and dance to tunes spun by a live DJ.
Easy Airport Parking offers safe haven to cars whose owners are bound for Indianapolis International Airport. Drivers silence engines in a valet lane and exchange keys or ignition-lodged screwdrivers for a claim check, relinquishing vehicles to employees who steer them into a standard or oversize spot. They then hop aboard a shuttle bus that drops off at terminals within 5 or 10 minutes. Since the buses run 24 hours a day, jet setters can call for a pickup as soon as they return, no matter the hour. The parking lot is also open all day and night, with security fences, cameras, and guards watching over roadsters and keeping patrons' personal chauffeurs from escaping. For an additional fee, cars can freshen up with a wash.
Every two years, the United States and Europe deploy an army of their 12 best professional golfers to do battle in a team match-play format at a venue that alternates between the two sides of the Atlantic. For the 2012 Ryder Cup event, Team USA captain Davis Love III and Team Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabal will lead their teams into an intercontinental duel on the links at Medinah Country Club in Illinois. Perennial stalwarts Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, as well as 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson, will headline the United States team as they try to avenge a 2010 loss to the Europeans at Celtic Manor Resort. Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, current world number one, leads a European team attempting to build upon a recent streak that has seen them win four out of the last five Ryder Cup events and successfully complete five out of their last six human pyramids.
City Cycle Chicago Inc's staff members combine the duties of instructors with the gung-ho nature of enthusiasts; it's their stated goal to spread motorcycle awareness, safety, and love throughout the City of Chicago. They even help riders earn their licenses, going so far as to show up with a vehicle on the day of the DMV test to provide coaching and support. But renting out their fleet of scooters for recreational riding is what gets their operation the most kudos. They tout the rentals as the "best way to see the Windy City," a claim they live up to by delivering the scooter to your front door and by noting that it's easy to park one just about anywhere, such as between two cars or right inside the mayor's office.
Chicago Limo Net ushers its office-, nightlife-, and airport-bound clientele about the Chicago area in a fleet of luxurious, custom buses and limousines. Twenty-four-passenger party buses bedecked in low-level lighting, leather couches, dancing poles, and mirror-laden roofs bestow a nightclub-like feel minus the acute stares of gargantuan doormen. Smaller 6- and 10-passenger limousines present many of the same creature comforts in a more aerodynamic package for airport or around-town trips. Each party conveyance is piloted by a professional chauffeur with extensive knowledge of downtown Chicago, who will gladly take the fastest or most scenic route and can offer unique insights into the city, such as how to differentiate between the Willis Tower and the pier's ferris wheel.
