If you haven't noticed, Chicago has been quite frigid this week!

We would like to take a moment to THANK the ground crew for their hard work and dedication. It's currently 12 degrees Fahrenheit, but with the wind chill it feels like -3. We can say it's cold, but they work in it all day and night. THANK YOU all, we appreciate all that you do. <3

The HMSHost Elf on the Shelf had quite the time running around O'Hare this holiday season!

He went from terminal to terminal checking out the concessionaires and helping when he could. Did you catch him? He still has a few more stops ;) #HMSHostElf

Get a taste of Chicago at the new Goose Island bar in Terminal 1 near Gates B1-4!

The recently opened bar carries eight beers on tap, with a focus on brews that reflect the local region. Plus, there are a number of charging stations available at both the bar and accompanying communal seating area. Come stop by! goo.gl/jgDHlK

Father Christmas gave O'Hare a visit yesterday!

He was checking his list of the passengers who were naughty and nice this year. We already know all those who passed through O'Hare were extra nice :)
