As you know, I am and have been a member of the USBG(United States Bartenders Guild), Illinois Chapter. What is the USBG you may ask? Well here it is.....
The USBG is one of the best things I have done in my professional career. Meetings, education, competitions, a nationwide brotherhood of like minded bartenders who are just as passionate about this industry as I am. I will always be a member of the USBG and will continue to encourage bartenders( esp "urban market" bartenders who aren't exposed to this part of the industry as much) to join and become active members of the family.
So with that being said, tonight, the USBG-IL chapter is hosting a tailgate party and membership drive. So if you haven't joined, or are interested in learning more, join myself and the rest of the Chicago family( well those of us who didnt make it to Portland for cocktail week) at The Brixton tonight from 7-10pm.

Until Next time
