In addition to attending the Taste Talks events in Chicago on October 3-5, I was invited to attend an exclusive announcement event and round table panel discussion moderated by Michael Ciapciak, owner of Bang Bang Pie on August 27th, discussing the “Changing the Face of a City Block” with Anne Owen of Owen + Alchemy, Danny Shapiro of Slippery Slope, and Noelle DiPrizio of Chicago Distilling at Bang Bang Pie in Logan Square.
It was an honor to attend and I got inspired listening to these entrepreneurs that evening on how each of their business have been able to maintain their individuality in their Logan Square neighborhood while launching new concepts and looking ahead into the future. Thanks Taste Talks, Bang Bang Pie for providing your delicious snacks such as your famous chocolate pecan pie and delicious cocktails by Chicago Distilling.
