Let's have a wonderful time enjoying some great wines and hor d'eouvres at the Wine Bar in the Metropolitan Club at the Willis Tower.
We're calling this event "Views, Visions and Veneto" because we'll enjoy some great views of Chicago, it's a great time to relax and think about your personal vision and Veneto wine tops off this time of rejuvenation.
Let's chill and enjoy a semi-private evening getting to know one another in a restorative setting. Take time to enjoy an evening relaxing after the work week has ended. Please note: We will be partaking in some fine wines that cost approximately $45 - $70 per bottle, not the usual $20 - $30 bottles you get at other wine tastings (I've inquired at a couple). PLUS, the Club Sommelier will briefly visit us so we'll have a short talk with a trained and knowledgeable wine professional. Michelle may be able to arrange some tours so please be sure to answer the MeetUp question about this if you're interested in a tour of this private business club. We definitely look forward to this event and experiencing this time with those of you who will be in attendance. Here's the 411:Please pay for this event in full as soon as you RSVP. Unpaid RSVPs will be removed DAILY so we can make room for attendees willing and ready to pay so please RSVP only if you are sure that you can attend.

Metropolitan Club History from its website: "In 1974, Mr. Arthur M. Wood, former Sears Roebuck & Co Board Chairman, championed not only the development of the Sears Tower but also the establishment of the tower’s Metropolitan Club. Since that time, the West Loop has flourished, and The Metropolitan Club has become known as the place to conduct business and meet Chicago’s “who’s who,” and has developed a reputation as Chicago’s finest business club. Understanding that the executives of today are vastly different from decades past, the Club provides our Members with the atmosphere, amenities and personalized service they seek. Located on the 66th and 67th floors of the Willis Tower, The Metropolitan Club of Chicago encourages professional and social networking through a variety of special events and Club Committees."
