Holiday Party 2017
Ho, Ho, Ho! Warm up the oven, stretch your throttle fingers and grab those unwanted gifts and join Chicago Creative Coalition members for our annual Holiday Party!
This year’s event, at Fieldhouse Jones, features a festive pot-luck dinner, and in a flashback to the 1960s, slot car racing! Since we will all be driving and will need quick reflexes, this will be an alcohol-free (as in there won’t be any, not that you won’t have to pay for it!) evening. C3 will provide the soft drinks.
After racing we will resurrect our annual White Elephant Gift Exchange. Just bring the tackiest, unwanted, whatever-the-heck-is-this-anyway? gift you’ve ever received, wrapped up nice and pretty.
What!? You have relatives and friends of impeccable taste and don’t own anything worth re-gifting? Then, yes, you are allowed to go out and purchase the gift of your nightmares, but please, do not spend much money.
It’s amazing what some people will covet amongst the bizarre offerings. This year may see the reemergence of the infamous Monkey Book Ends (a perennial favorite weird gift).
Cost will be $20 per adult to defray venue costs. Please register below by Dec. 14.
Happy Holidays (sorry, Mr. President), and see you there!
