What is Chicago Twenty Something?
We produce and advertise social events that target those in their 20s and 30s. We put together everything from bar crawls and booze cruises to Adults Only Nights at Lincoln Park Zoo and Altitude Trampoline Park! Check out their website>>
When did you found Chicago Twenty Something?
I started the company in 2004 because I noticed there were several companies promoting nightclubs, but no one was producing events that targeted recent grads and young professionals.
What kind of events do you plan?
We throw dozens of events throughout the year, but some of my favorites include the Chicago Shamrock Crawl, The Mustache Crawl, Chicago Wine Fest, Chicago Donut Fest, Adults Night Out at Lincoln Park Zoo, our 20 New Year’s Eve Parties and of course Matzo Bash!
What is the most fun Jewish event you have worked on?
Matzo Bash for sure. We’ve been throwing Chicago’s Annual Christmas Eve Party Since 2004 and it has been great to see it evolve over the years. We’ve been fortunate to team up with great organizations such as JUF, FIDF, ChiTribe, Reboot, The JCC, and Shorashim. This is a great event to help raise money for each organization while providing a great option for Christmas eve.
