Chicago Ideas Week may be a couple months away (October 14-20) but we're already combing through the confirmed events for our favorites. On October 15, Threadless is going to be leading a Think Lab session at their headquarters, which is definitely a must see! Tickets aren't on sale yet but we're keeping our eyes peeled for more amazing events. Stay tuned!—Shelby Blitz [Chicago Ideas Week]
