In honor of Women’s History Month in March, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel invites Chicago to raise a glass to and partake in a conversation about the powerhouse female figures in Chicago hospitality today as part of the hotel’s ongoing Storytelling Series. This complimentary panel celebrates the impactful, strong-willed, and game-changing women shaping the hospitality scene in Chicago.
Held in The Tank on the ground floor within the formerly men’s-only Chicago Athletic Association club, this inclusive gathering of women in hospitality carriers on the spirit of women who have long been changing the game in Chicago. The panel will be moderated by Chicago Woman Editorial and Brand Strategy Director Jennifer Smith Tapp, as she guides guests through a thoughtful conversation with:
· Elana Green, Executive Director (Land & Sea Dept.)
· Alpana Singh, Restauranteur & Master Sommelier (The Boarding House, Seven Lions, Terra & Vine)
· Nandini Khaund, Spirit Guide (Cindy’s, Chicago Athletic Association hotel)
· Shelby Allison, Partner (Lost Lake)
· Sterling Knight, Sommelier (Cindy’s)
This Storytelling Series takes place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m Admission to the event is complimentary with registration. Additionally, a portion of all proceeds Monday, March 27 from Cindy’s Rooftop will be donated to Deborah’s Place, Chicago’s largest provider of supportive housing for single women experiencing homelessness, opening doors to housing, healing, and hope.
