    Good event. I thought it would be bigger, but still worth the trip from the burbs. A couple of suggestions for next year.
    1. The people selling cosmetics should book makeover appointments during the show so we could see the characteristics of the products being demonstrated.
    2. The people selling packaged food should have provided bags to carry the items home.

    This sounds great. NOTHING like this in Jacksonville, FL. I will have been in the area for 3 weeks by the time this rolls around, so it's all going to be new to me. Looking forward to all these amazing events and options. I think I will be 'home'. :)

    Please RSVP for the official Chicago VeganMania After-Party ASAP so we could give as accurate number to the restaurant as possible beforehand. Also, please consider to pre-pay in advance (by the end of Sept 19th) to save some money for the admission. Please see the event description for more details here:

    What is parking suggestion?

    September 16, 2013

    • Marla R.

      There is lots of metered parking around the Armory but the earliest you can get there, the best. The Thorndale red line stop of the L is the absolute best and what we recommend to people. It's a very short walk from there.

      While we definitely plan to have some give-aways at our table, we have not decided yet if we will have raffle tickets at the table. However, we will definitely have raffle at the After-Party: http://www.ChicagoVeg...­
