The Diva Series is back and this week will be honoring the divas, er… ladies of the NBC Chicago Street Team! The Diva Series is the brainchild of fellow ChiGuide contributor, Sarah Vargo and seeks to celebrate influential women in Media, PR, Fitness, Fashion, Beauty and much more! Crimson Lounge hosts the weekly series with $3 drink specials (sparking champagne, house wine and draught beer)
I, among many other, NBC Chicago Street Teamers will be in attendance and celebrating! The Diva Series is always a good time for BOTH men and women! The smart guys know that the celebration of women is a very good thing. Come straight from work and enjoy the $3 sparkling wine special, which is always a hit with the ladies!
