The event will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel at 505 N Michigan Ave. Tickets are $10 for Chicago Council members and $20 for non-members. There's a cash bar reception starting at 5:30pm and then the discussion will start at 6.
There should be a Starbucks right next to the hotel. Let's meet there at 5:15 and venture over together at 5:30. If you're not able to meet us at Starbucks, look for me at the hotel -- I'll be wearing a small Go Girl pin.
Looking forward to seeing your lovely faces!
