Surprise! Chicago Welcomes Me Back with Open Arms.

After spending several weeks in San Francisco, I was pleasantly surprised when my friends back in Chicago planned a party for me.  I think the biggest surprise of all was the fact that I didn’t learn of the surprise party despite its public status as a Facebook event.  Nevertheless, I greatly appreciate the Chicago tech community giving me such a warm welcome home party.  It was great to see everyone, all at once!  I regret to say that I won’t be able to make it to the upcoming Tech Cocktail conference, but I’ll be there in spirit!

Or shall I say spirits?  The overwhelming response I got from others in the tech community after posting my story about the Krisiti being born at DEMO has led to a Techtini Pocket Guide that will debut as schwag for the speakers at the Tech Cocktail conference.

Thanks to the undying support from SharedBook, this collaborative cocktail recipe guide has become quite real, and in a few days, anyone will be able to submit their own cocktail recipe to be accessible by anyone that would like to create their own custom recipe book.

I’m also extremely excited to say that the proceeds of the cocktail recipe books will be going towards non-profit organizations, so here’s saying “cheers” to a good cause.  Look out for more details about the pocket guide in the next few days, and see below for a few photos of my surprise party from last week!  Thanks, Chicago!!!!!

  1. Just great, Kristin, just great.

    Here I am, heading out to SF next week (Wed. thru Wed.) with the hopes of bumping into you.

    If you know of any “must attend” events in the area during that time frame, a heads-up would be greatly appreciated.

    Glad that you received a very warm welcome in Chicago!

    Cheers,
    David
