Events ‘A Plenty!

Events ‘A Plenty!

The number one question I’m always asked as we wind down a season is “Do you go to Florida in your off season?” I WISH!! The day we close the shop in October, we shift gears and start to prepare for the next season. I’m the only one in Chicago who thinks the winter goes too […]

Well, there’s no complaining here at Caps. We have pretty much dodged a bullet with this warmer weather – which has us REALLY thinking about Spring! 2017 marks our 16th season. I still cannot believe how time flies. We’ve been so lucky and blessed with all our wonderful customers, the awards and recognitions we’ve received, […]

Spread the Love!

I suppose we need to look at the bright side. January’s rain could have been snow. If the sun would ever surface from behind these relentless clouds, we would know that sunset slowly inches later and later into the evening. And this is a GOOD thing because it means we are closer and closer to […]
