4th Annual Lunch with the Legends

The October meeting was the ISES Chicago 4th Annual Lunch with Legends. Guests arrived to Kaiser Tiger near the West Loop of Chicago, and gathered in the second floor event space called the Skyline Lounge. The Skyline Lounge offers breathtaking views of the Chicago Skyline from the Willis Tower to the Hancock. The Skyline Lounge was set for a seated luncheon for approximately 60 guests.
Upon entering the event space, guests were offered a homemade cider or a beverage of choice. Attendees mingled and networked for approximately 30 minutes and then President, Barb Harris welcomed all the guests. Following the welcome remarks, guests were seated, and each legend was introduced. Legends were seated at each table and starter questions were provided to get the conversation going at each stop. Each table had an ISES Chicago board member who helped get the conversation started and keep everyone on track. Guests enjoyed the opportunity to chat with each of the featured legend who changed tables every 10 minutes or so to maximize audience exposure. The tables were set very rustic as to go the look and feel of the event space. Guests enjoyed a buffet of an assortment of sausages and bacon entrees, the standard Kasier Tiger cuisine as they were served cider or a beverage of choice table side. Dessert was served tableside with a choice of coffee or tea.
The legends were as follows:

  • Bill Kubiak - Freeman
  • Gwen McNutt - Comcast
  • Rudy Jones - Gentlemen of Leisure Band
  • Sandy Sobczak - M&M Special Events
  • Kate Samuelson - Navy Pier
  • David Epstein - HMR Designs
