Join REI and Fat Tire for an exciting summer evening. We'll paddle one of our favorite Chicagoland areas and follow it with an afterparty hosted by Fat Tire. After a basic paddling orientation, we'll hit the water to explore the area from the unique perspective of a kayak. Then we'll enjoy the evening with Fat Tire at a local, nearby bar. Oh, and the first round is on us! Age 21+.
