Foodies' Night In Special Event 8/30 - Chicago's Macello

We are so excited to share the fun of Foodies' Night In (#fni) - our weekly Twitter party with Cooking With Caitlin all about FOOD - with fellow Chicago friends!

On Monday, 8/30 we will be co-hosting Foodies' Night In with our Cincinnati-based delicious dynamos, Cooking with Caitlin, from Macello Ristorante in Chicago!

This week's mouth-watering topic is The Dinner Party Menu - and we'll chat about everything from the inspiration that spills from the cocktail menu to the guidance that the main course lends the entire evening...

For Chicago fellow foodies and entertaining tweeps, we would love to have you join us IN-PERSON!  As always, the #fni Twitter Party starts promptly at 3pCT and wraps up 5pCT.  You can arrive as early as 2.30p to get a seat and to meet foodie friends. After #fni, we'll continue with an #fni Happy Hour from 5p-7p.  We will have delicious nibbles and beverages straight from the Macello kitchen to help sustain the energy during our Foodies' Night In session!

How does a Twitter Party work?

On Monday afternoons, we meet through Twitter.  Using the hashtag #FNI, we meet & greet at the virtual party door, and get cozy to chat about whatever food-related topic is featured that day.  The sponsors and hosts have 10 questions to lead and frame the discussion over the two hours.  But the real fun begins with comments, feedback and (often unexpected) hilarity from all the Twitter participants! Drop in and out as your schedule permits - you can always catch up by reviewing the twitter logs!
