Free Thursday: Blogapalooza

ChicagoNow's throwing a little party for the general public tomorrow along with the 900 shops on Michigan Ave. Well, it's kind of an event at the various stores, but since there will be free food and drink and fun, interesting people there, I shall call it a party.

Michigan Ave.! Just like Oprah's party. Here are the deets:

Thursday, Sept. 24

5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

900 N. Michigan Ave.

Actually, better than Oprah's party, because unlike Oprah's party, our party will have free food and drink. In fact, the Web site says "spirits," which I would take to mean free cocktails, right? (And that means a lot now that the liquor sellers are taking advantage of the tax hike to charge us more for the booze here in Illinois.) Oh! I just read a little more on the Web site and it says there will even be scotch. I love scotch.

OK, our party will lack Oprah, which I heard they totally had at Oprah's party. Also our party will lack the big-name musical acts that Oprah had. It will just have a DJ. 


Our party will have ChicagoNow bloggers such as Miss Illinois USA Ashley Bond and former Playboy bunny Candace Jordan, as well as Check Please hoste Alpana Singh. Also, parking is only $6 there after 4 p.m., with validation from any participating retailer.

And hey, I'll be there! I'm not listed on the bill or anything because I'll be with my 3 kids and I have no idea if I'll be able to provide much in the way of intelligible money saving advice, but I do plan to go.

For one thing, there will be free food. And drinks.

So glad to hear that you are coming? I'm guessing you are planning a stop at the Kid's Korner? See you there.
