My Kinda Town, Chicago Is!

Filed under: ASI Shows, Editorial, Travel

Hi Everyone —

Before I head (in Philly-speak) “down the shore” to Avalon for the weekend, I just wanted to say I’m looking forward to seeing you all in Chicago at the ASI Show next week! If you’re a supplier, be sure to stop by the “Supplier Hot Topics — Uncensored!” panel I’m moderating on Wednesday, July 23rd, from 5-6:00 p.m. (room 226) immediately after the show. We’ll be discussing such crucial issues as rising prices, the impact of new employment laws in Asia and product safety. Adult beverages will be served, because, as the bon vivants say, “If drinks aren’t involved, then neither am I!”

We’ll also be broadcasting our ASI Radio Show live from Chicago on Tuesday morning, 9:30 a.m. central time. For those of you who know me, to say I am not a “morning person” is putting it mildly, so I’m sure my disposition will be snarky sass at its finest.  Thanks so much to all of you who listened and called into our first show this past Tuesday. You made it a huge success and, as always, I stand in awe of your support — you’re better than a WonderBra. If you’d like to call into the show this week when we’re in Chicago, just dial (215) 953-4979.

Check in next week for lots of photos, commentary and general kookiness from the ASI Chicago Show!

    You crack me up! Just so you know, I am stealing two of your lines from this blog.
    1. If drinks aren’t involved, then neither am I – will be my new personal motto.
    2. I stand in awe of your support – Your better than a WonderBra.
    Every time I use either saying I’ll make sure to give you props!
    Loved, loved, loved seeing you as always. Can’t wait for the next adventure!
    PS – still waiting for my Michele Bell nickname.
