December 8 - 10, 2017
Here's the Plan:
Friday, December 8th:
You're welcome to make your own hotel reservations. We recommend The Virgin Hotel, as it's in the heart of State Street Shopping. Check-in, and make yourself comfortable, we've got everything ready for you to have a Wonderful Retreat Weekend.
Meeting in The Virgin Hotel's Lounge at 5:30pm.
Join us as we 'UnWined' for the evening with wine tasting, nibbles, and connecting with friends. We'll learn a bit about each other, and the redesign plans for the weekend.
Comedy Night ...
Improvised Shakespeare Company at 7:30pm
We'll travel to the I/O theater for a night of laughter at The Improvised Shakespeare show. This long-form improv is a great way to get the weekend rolling. They'll be looking to the audience for the "title" of this show. Time to get creative!
Saturday at 9am - Christmas Decor Extravaganza
Holiday Decorating workshop with hands-on experience. Register to hold your space, with details to follow.
You'll learn to wrap your gifts like a pro.
Decorate your homes that will look like it's ready for Better Homes & Gardens.
More surprises along the way.
Afterward, we'll head back to the hotel so you can clean-up before our Dinner at the Walnut Room ... a tradition for generations.
6pm Dinner at the Walnut Room
The world famous Walnut Room has been a Chicago tradition since 1907. Located on the 7th floor of Macy’s on State Street the Walnut Room is the first restaurant ever opened in a department store. With Circassian wood paneling imported from Russia and Austrian chandeliers, the 17,000 square foot dining room is both elegant and comfortable.
Sunday at 10am - One of a Kind Gift Show or Shopping on the Magnificent MIle, or both!
Go ahead and sleep-in on Sunday morning ... or get up and take a walk ... it's your time. We'll meet at 10am in the lobby of the Virgin Hotel to head to the Merchandise Mart for the 17th Annual One of a Kind Holiday Show, with over 600 talented makers from across North America.
Hugs Goodbye -3:00pm
We'll wrap-up the weekend by 3:00 pm, so you can begin to make your trip home. We hope to see you again in February 2017 for the next Wine + Redesign Retreat.
