Hey everyone, I'm taking my first real visit to Chicago and I'm very excited. The only other time I've been in the area is to stop at the hectic airport there. I'm looking to gather old and new faces together for a social event. I'll be in Chicago for the SOHO Event at Loyola University, where I'm keynoting on the topic of personal branding, which probably won't surprise you.
The social event will take place at Bar Deville (information below) at 8:30 at night, as recommended by one of my close friends from elemenatry school who lives there. You're welcome to bring guests and to forward this eventbrite link and promote it on Twitter, etc. This will be a social event, very casual and there will be no speakers.
I hope to see you there!
Name: Bar Deville
Street: 701 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL
8:30 PM CT
