Schmoozing: chicago collective opening night party

by Stephen Garner

Retailers and vendors gathered at Marshall’s Landing at the Merchandise Mart for the opening night party of the Chicago Collective on Super Bowl Sunday, February 4.

Sponsored by David Donahue, over 700 people turned up to watch Super Bowl LII and celebrate the opening of the February 2018 Chicago Collective. The game was shown on a 27-foot screen, as well as a dozen satellite screens. Guests lounged on the grand staircase and enjoyed game day-themed passed apps and buffets – wings, tots, sliders, and more – as well as a number of specialty cocktails provided by Beam Suntory and beer from Lakeshore Beverage.
