Lunch and Learn--it's Free!

REI wants to educate you on how to get active outdoors, oh, and they want to give you a free lunch from Chipotle. It doesn't get much better than that.

Here's the deal: Throughout the month of October, REI is hosting a Lunch and Learn every Tuesday from noon to 1pm. The sessions start on Oct. 6 and run until Oct. 27. The goal of this program is to help people get out of the office and have fun. Topics for each class range from "Getting Outdoors in the City," to "Quick and Easy Volunteering," from "Introduction to Action Sports," to "Introduction to Winter Sports." Each session will educate Chicagoans on ways to get out there, enjoy the city, and be active.

All it takes is a quick phone call to register for one Lunch and Learn during October. After picking which session to attend, one can then choose a steak, chicken, or veggie burrito for free lunch. The burrito will be waiting for attendees when they arrive at noon.

All sessions will be held at REI Lincoln Park, 2nd Floor Community Room, 1466 N. Halsted St. Call 312-951-6020 to register.
