Lots of (happy!) new beginnings this week. First up: Congratulations to AT:Chicago co-editor Heather and Josh, who were married this past weekend and mazel tov to Bridgett (AT reader extraordinaire) and Evan (AT:Chicago house tour photo guy) on the birth of their daughter! Now, down to business... We've still got lots of color to come. Our in box is filling up with the new and expanded entries from our semifinalists and we can't wait to show them to you (but we will - first you need to meet the judges!). Then, on the 15th, we'll be gathering to celebrate everyone involved at our wrap party at CB2 - we hope you'll join us. Fall Colors Contest Wrap Party Thursday, November 15th 6PM CB2 – 800 W. North Ave., Chicago RSVP: email@example.com Also, we wanted to let you know that November 15th is shaping up to be a very bloggy night out in Chicago. In addition to sipping wine, schmoozing and dishing about the contest at our AT soiree, you can stop by the Design Sponge Biz Lady Meet Up at Jayson Home and Garden. Here is the scoop from Grace: Thursday, November 15, 2007 7pm Jayson Home and Garden RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org She says they'll be discussing small business concerns, marketing/PR, real life designer success stories and retailing/wholesaling. Please bring a snack or drink with you if you can. One lucky Biz Lady will win a $500 gift certificate to Jayson Home and Garden. Have a great week and stay tuned for more Color Contest across AT!
