Do you like innovation? Sure ya do. Welp, Sept. 5 is the Chicago Innovation Awards nominee reception at the House of Blues, which, in addition to allowing the attendees to say they have an appointment with the CIA, is also a fantastic opportunity for networking, mingling and sharing oxygen with the movers and shakers of many different aspects of Chicago biz. Tickets are only 15 smackers, which includes drinks and appetizers, and if you want to register you can point your mouse and click here. There’s not much more to tell, really, other than that the 380 nominees for the awards will be in attendance, of course, and that the place will be positively quaking with innovation. Quaking!
