Kind of a networking party Dec 9 from 6:30om-9ish
Where: Holiday Club 4000 N. Sheridan Road Chicago, IL 60613
See more info and the RSVP link, at their site:http://www.chicago-social-marketing.com
I found out about this by also being a member of some related suburban Meetup groups.
Fox Valley Computing Professionals ( FVCP on Meetup / Facebook / Twitter ) and
Suburban Chicago PHP & Web Development Meetup
Links for those are: http://www.meetup.com/foxvalleycphttp://www.meetup.com/suburbanchicagowebdev
run by Eric M. and Dave R. respectively.
I'd recommend both groups even though it maybe hard for Chicagoans to attend the meetings in person.
