You can always tell if an event has swag because there's usually a crowd that forms as thick as pea soup.
Similar to sample day at the grocery store, most folks don't care what they're getting, as long as it's free. But how many times have you started out feeling victorious because you actually claimed a bag (and made it out alive), only to get home and dump out a pile of pamphlets on the kitchen table?
Doesn't matter, there's nothing that beats the breathless anticipation of seeing what "might" be inside. So almost as quickly as Style Chicago started advertising Wednesday's "Evening of Modern Beauty" at the W Chicago City Center, the 250 goodie bags were claimed like hot cakes online.
Not to worry, even without a goodie bag, the evening will still be filled with enough food, drinks and entertainment to be considered a very economical night out with the girls. Enjoy complimentary beauty and spa treatments from 20+ beauty and lifestyle brands, cocktails, wine and hors d'oeuvres provided by the W City Center.
If your heart is really set on swag, then sign up to receive regular updates from Style Chicago, as their partnered events always promise some serious loot.
You just have to learn to move fast.
An Evening of Modern Beauty, W Chicago City Center (172 West Adams St.), August 26th, 6-9 p.m. Purchase tickets.
