@JenChicago meets up with @TheLocalTourist @Houseonahillorg @interactiveAmy and @MarniLevine at India House in downtown Chicago for their monthly Lunch-up!
I’m like that person in a race that is drooling and running kinda crooked but somehow still upright. This “video every day business” is kinda intense- and with travel, work and plain ol’ life it can feel like a big chore…. but not today. ‘Cause I just rambled today. Rambling is fun. Samson seems to like it.
My advice? Always have a book with you!

This summer The Local Tourist (also known as TLT), JenChicago, and Social Sami are hosting a tweetup with a twist. We love the Windy City so much we want to encourage everyone to be “Local Tourists”.
We invite all of you “social”-ites to join us on the Free Spirit Luxury Yacht for a night of networking on Lake Michigan, complete with a three hour cruise, food, beer, wine and soda, and each and every one of you will receive a goody bag filled with offers from local attractions, restaurants, and things to do [dude... the goody bag is getting really good- like how goody bags USED to be!] inviting you to be tourists in your own city. Certainly something everyone should include in the their summer plans! You’ll leave filled with so many happy memories of the great summer breeze, drinking with friends and making new ones.
[This is going to be so much fun and you'll meet really cool and interesting people on the gorgeous waters of Lake Michigan AND you have 3 of the best party hosts in Chi-town! Word.
I'm shooting a video, you can be in... We're taking pictures and having some cocktails... it's the epitome of a summer night in Chicago. It's gonna be a beautiful thing.]
$50 in advance, $60 at the dock.
We’ve only got room for 120, so RSVP to secure your spot!
If you’d like to be in the goody bags, please contact Theresa, Jen, or Sami!
[PS: If you have no idea what a tweet-up is, please come and learn in the most fun possible environment. Oh, and uh... don't forget to bring your phone.]

All my life my mom has been an exceptional educator. I know that had a HUGE effect on my life! Among other things, Mom definitely gave me a strong appreciation for reading. I’m a regular bookworm and I love it! Now that social media is becoming more prevalent, I find myself becoming an educator, of sorts, for my family and friends. In honor of my mother, I offer to you a little “mom-themed” video on how to get started with Twitter.
Moms rock and we KNOW it! Happy Mother’s Day!
