Hi Cooking Chicks!

What a long, strange, trip and break it's been from our Cooking Chick events! After hosting 75 events, in 3-years - I needed some time way to really think about who we are, what we have become, and where Cooking Chicks can go.

We are more then a meetup and truly have the ability to impact people from all over the country and the world with our message of sharing, meeting, eating, and learning how to cook!

So many of you during this time have reached out and responded to the call out to help and assist and have also asked when we'll be hosting our next set of events. It has been completely appreciated across the board as I have been slowly working my hardest to balance my current life as a busy Realtor, to morphing this new life as a full-time Cooking Chick and budding homecook-turned professional Chef. None of the success of this new life I have discovered is without thanks to all of you who again believe in The Cooking Chicks!

Life is pulling me everyday towards food events, education and getting to know each and everyone of you who wants to see this grow and be successful.

We are more then a meetup, we are a true growing culture of homecooks, chefs and foodies alike and we are one of the only concepted groups like this in the country. Connections around the U.S. are calling for a Cooking Chicks group to open up near them so we are working towards expanding too! We want to spread the word and belief in the power of learning, creating and bringing back homecooked, from-scratch meal-making to our kitchens. Why? Because your dinner table misses you!

Let's start sharing again....

Join me with RSVPs open to 30 'Chicks to be our guest at Logan Square's cutest Pie, Buscuit and Coffee joint ~ Bang Bang Pie!

Guests will enjoy a Choice of Small Coffee or Tea, and a Buiscuit or Slice of Pie on us!

We'll be "eatworking" our form of networking and discussing the following items:

1. Discussion about where we are and where we plan to go

2. A formal call out to those interested in helping with The new Cooking Chicks happenings, events, and prepare for our concept relaunch

3. Provide some market feedback & surveying to us to help the group grow

4. Hear from those who want to help lead events (an inquiry we've put out before and got a great response)


*Also if you can kindly please only RSVP if you can FOR SURE come we are really hoping to keep this to those you are 100% in and committed to joining us* All attendees will also leave with with special small thank you gift for attending!

Thank you all and look forward to get cookin' with you all again!
