Currently, Megan writes and explores the city of Chicago as much as she can! She has found that the best way to do that is running! Whether it’s up Michigan Avenue towards the Loop, over to Bridgeport, or down to the lakefront; running is the best way to take in the city and get a little workout in. Megan loves thrift shopping all over the city and scoring new finds at unique stores. While she has enjoyed deep-dish pizza, she still loves her thin crust! She loves coffee, reading the personal journal section of The Wall Street Journal.

The event overlooked beautiful buildings of downtown Chicago, with guests mingling about and trying dishes from mini veal meatballs by Frankie’s Scallopine to red velvet donuts from Glazed & Infused. The event, hosted by Cece Gonzales and Melinda Johnson of Raymi Productions, brought out a huge crowd. Guests were able to sip on 312 beer and Terrazas de Los Andes wine.
