Seven 1010 Tweetup

| July 12, 2010 | 5 Comments

I live in Chicago…and I love it! It’s rare that I leave the city limits. However, once in a while I venture out to the suburban areas if the opportunity presents itself and if there’s a promise of a good time at the end of the road.  That was the case this past weekend with the fantastic @TargetStars @WildfireRest @Houseonahillorg hosting a tweetup at the Wildfire Restaurant in Schaumburg.

It really was a great time. We were able to chat with fellow suburban tweeps and nibble on some tasty bites and go home with a wonderful swag bag. I suppose the suburbs aren’t that bad after all!

@WildfireRest is a great restaurant, whether a dinner for two or a family night. The menu is great and the staff is wonderful and I’m very happy that there’s one in the city.

My other favorite part of the day was enjoying the company of @Houseonahillorg. We traveled in the extremely comfortable Chevy Tahoe Hybrid. I actually enjoyed getting lost because then we got to call (you literally hit a button and you’re connected to them) OnStar and ask them to send us turn-by-turn navigation directly to the Tahoe Hybrid. Pretty coo, ha? Here are some photos and the rest can be viewed on my Flickr.
