Chicago Prime Italian
Hi everyone. First of all, I want to say thank you so much for your patience and support! I’m excited to say we finally have a location for the first U.S. Blogging Event! Please feel free to reblog and/or share on social media. Here it is below:
Our dinner and awards ceremony will be held at Chicago Prime Italian in Schaumburg, Illinois on Saturday Aug. 26, 2017 at 6 p.m. for three to four hours. Depending on traffic, Schaumburg is about 40 minutes away from Chicago using public transportation or a taxi. You may even be able to stay in Schaumburg. We decided on Schaumburg because costs were more reasonable than Chicago. Since there is a deposit to hold the restaurant, I will need a payment of $5.50 from each person who is attending. The $5.50 will go towards holding the restaurant for us and the final bill. The payment can be made within the next few weeks by PayPal or snail mail. My Paypal e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org The meal will be $30-40 a person (this should also cover tax). This includes an appetizer, soup or salad, Italian entrée, drinks (non-alcoholic is a separate cost) and dessert. The meal can be paid for at the event. The blogging event will also include guest speakers and an awards ceremony. Nominations and finals for the blogging awards will begin in the next couple of months. Two social media pages were created on Facebook and Twitter thanks to Phil from The Phil Factor. You can follow along on Twitter at: @USBloggersBash and the US Bloggers Bash on Facebook. Those who are attending will need to figure out their own costs for travel and lodging. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com We hope to see you in August!
