It's that time of year when people get more social. Patios open. Grills light up. People come together. One event I always look forward: Social Media Club Chicago's summer soiree.
With no formal program, the night is all about socializing, reconnecting and making new contacts. If you're in the Chicago area, join us!
You can register right here or check out the Social Media Club Chicago Summer Soiree registration site. Full disclosure: I am a founding SMC Chicago board member.
