Who says winter is a time to hibernate? (Ok, I did, a few weeks ago...and on TV, no less). But you wouldn't know it from all the wonderful charity events taking place in the next week. Will I see you out and about?
REMIX II: Tuned Up
benefiting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's outreach programs
Friday, March 2, 2012. 7-9p VIP Pre-Party, 9p-1a General Admission
Architectural Artifacts, 4325 N. Ravenswood
$115 General Admission (contact me for a special discount on the VIP price)
Alright, as a member of the planning committee I'm a wee bit biased, but this is one glam party. The evening starts off with a jazzy tone, but by 1am we'll be dancing to DJ Madrid's high energy beats (Funny story: he was the DJ at the now-defunct Virgin Record store and I used to pester him with "Hey! What song was just playing?" questions. Small world.)
Can't attend? Sign up for Make It Better magazine's wonderful email newsletter and the Symphony will receive a $5 donation for every subscription. Win-win!
