The Chicago Loop Happy Hour Group Message Board › Meetup Update and Reminder for This Wednesday: Creative Women Taking Charge
|A former member||
Dear Loop Happy Hour members,
First, thanks again to Bryan and Tommy for working with me on this event; I look forward to more Meetup collaborations with you two in the future.
Creative Women Taking Charge #1 is taking place this coming Wednesday, 6 PM, at Old Town Pub, 1339 North Wells. I spoke with the pub last night and we are all ready to go. We have over 100 people signed up and a great program so this should be an exceptional evening celebrating the creative work of three outstanding women. FULL DETAILS ARE BELOW.
All members who have RSVPed have been marked as PAID (free), as will those who RSVP in advance through Meetup. Otherwise, registration at the door is $5. We still have a few spots open, so please RSVP ASAP if you are interested. If you wait and wind up on the wait list, we will do our best to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee a spot as space is limited.
Old Town Pub will provide free pizza and tater tots. At the end of the program, a few of us will stick around for OTP's always-fun regular Wednesday night karaoke!
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Both women and men are encouraged to attend this CSC event honoring Creative Women Taking Charge!
One thing that is for sure about the Creative Social Club, this Meetup Group is blessed with many exceptional creative women as members. Whether they are entrepreneurs or artists or social media mavens or otherwise movers-and-shakers, the ladies of the Creative Social Club take the initiative in doing great things and making their creative dreams come true. One of the benefits of being the Organizer of the CSC is I get to meet outstanding people all the time, and in recognizing that the CSC's greatest unique strength may well be the ability to bring together Chicago's outstanding creative women, I have decided to start an event series honoring creative women and sharing their experiences with other people. The inaugural Creative Women Taking Charge! event will be on Wednesday, March 6th, commemorating International Women's Day 2013 two days later.
Creative Women Taking Charge #1 will feature an extraordinarily dynamic, diverse trio of women, all CSC members:
This Meetup is sponsored by FunderHut, a brand new Chicago crowdfunding startup co-founded by CSC member Dan Salganik. I met with Dan in December and I am impressed with his locally-oriented, community-based vision for crowdfunding. It is a good thing to see a crowdfunding startup in Chicago, but even more so to have one that is so focused on helping build local communities. We will ask Dan to provide an overview of crowdfunding, how it ties to people's creative initiatives, and a demonstration of how to use FunderHut.
Registration for this event is $5 at the door. However, if you register in advance (RSVP) through Meetup, you will be marked as paid (free). We will ask for your full name and those of your guests when you RSVP so that you will be on our registration list. Please update your RSVPs if your plans change and do not no-show as space is limited.
Event Host and Co-Sponsor Old Town Pub will provide free pizza and tater tots. At the end of the program, a few of us will stick around for OTP's always-fun regular Wednesday night karaoke!
