TECH cocktail Chicago 5TECH cocktail turned one year old this week and to celebrate we hosted our fifth TECH cocktail in Chicago (6th overall). Thank you to the close to 600 guests that came out to TECH cocktail last night at John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville. It was a sea of green as guests all tried to win some great prizes from SingleHop. Eric Olson and I are extremely pleased with the way the local tech scene has come out of the woodwork in Chicago to support TECH cocktail. It has been wonderful getting to know so many people over the past year as we have some fun together connecting to amplify the technology signal in the Windy City.

TECH cocktail sea of green!
