Bloga what? Why is she telling me this? What is she talking about? Must be some geeky blogger version of Lollapalooza. This doesn't sound family-friendly. I came to this blog to find out about the best parks in town -- not some crazy blogging festival.
Stick with me for a minute here. Blogapalooza isn't a weird blogging event. I swear. It is more like a meet-and-greet combined with a chance to eat, drink and chill out at the 900 North Michigan Shops on a Thursday night. I am going to be the featured blogger in the Kid's Korner -- which I assure you, is definitely going to be kid-friendly.
Bring your kiddies down for face painting and a scavenger hunt sponsored by Oilily, Mini Me, Preggers and Galt Toys. I am going to have cookies from Potbelly's (for the kids, but maybe for you too). I am also going to be sharing my top five family must-do events for fall.
Plus, I am giving away free passes to Day Frog, a great indoor play space in the Streeterville neighborhood (trust me, you are going to want these when winter blows into town in a few weeks).
But enough about me and your kids. Let's talk about what Blogapalooza has to offer YOU.
At this event, you can enter to win a style make-over courtesy of Bloomingdales and Styled in Chicago. Then maybe hop over to Williams-Sonoma to sample food prepared by Sarah Stegner of Prairie Chefs. Send your husband over to Mark Shale to have a drink, get a shoe shine and talk sports while you mingle with socialite Candace Jordan of Candid Candace. Alpana Singh will be hosting a wine tasting. Maya Henderson will be talking yoga at Lululemon. And there is more -- lots more.
We're talking good times here. And it's all free. Plus, validated parking in the 900 N. Michigan garage is only $6 for those who enter after 4:00 pm. Sounds pretty good, right? Things kick off at 5:00 and it runs until 7:00 pm. Learn more about the event here. And don't forget to RSVP here so I know you'll be there.
