The Un-Corporate Holiday Party in Chicago

Bookmark and Share

I have not been to a proper, corporate, holiday party in Chicago since 2003...and I miss it.

Costumed Characters in Chicago - Elf for Holiday Party

My last corporate job was when I worked for Accenture in 2003 - 2004, and since that time, I have not been invited to a proper, corporate event and I miss it badly. In my early career, I worked for DDB Chicago and other agencies where we had INCREDIBLE holiday parties. Epic parties that were followed by intense shame the next work day.

In 2004, I went to work for SUSHISAMBA and we had holiday parties after the holidays because we worked during the holidays. I never really count those because they took place in February and I was so busy planning other people's holiday parties that I never got a real feel for the holiday parties myself.

So now that we're in 2010, and I am self-employed, I've decided to THROW A CORPORATE HOLIDAY PARTY for the self-employed. I am doing it. I am doing it on November 30th at SUSHISAMBA. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the entrepreneur, the self-employed, the freelancer and the person who doesn't really like their company and would rather celebrate with their friends.

My favorite party of the evening

Everyone who brings in a brand new toy will receive a $20.00 gift certificate from SUSHISAMBA towards a future purchase. The toys will all go to Dreams For Kids a great local organization that throws a holiday party for at-risk youth every December. I am really excited about this event so you can imagine that I will be talking about it a lot over the next two weeks. You better be there!
