Windy City Media Group (parent company of Windy City Times) held a winter party for its staff, contributors and delivery personnel, Feb. 2, at Mary's Attic, 5400 N. Clark St.
The Windy City folks chowed down on mac and cheese fritters and "Mary burgers" while art director Kirk Williamson doled out a huge variety of giveaways, donated by local businesses. Prizes included delicious brownies from Sweet Miss Givings; champagne from Parlour; theater tickets from MidTangent Productions; restaurant certificates from Club Lucky, Fireside Grill, and Jane's Restaurant; and concert tickets to see Lorna Luft, Magnetic Fields, Thomas Dolby, and G. Love and Special Sauce.
After the first round of giveaways, publisher Tracy Baim took the stage and gave a speech in tribute to John Pennycuff, who served as Windy City's office manager until 2006 and passed away late last month.
Some Windy City employess could not make the event, but we honor all who make what we do possible!
