As Chicago Urbanite celebrates its one year anniversary, I have to say, it was quite an international mix of beautiful people, versatility in music, dance performances and, of course, different languages spoken! I truly enjoyed meeting new people and bringing old friends to the party. Claudia, who did a phenomenal job organizing the event, looked glamorous and always on top of things. Once again, I love the ethnicity and culture that our great city has to offer. However, it really takes someone like Claudia to bring everybody together for a big celebration!
Wow! Thank you very much for such a positive review of the event Natasha! It is my intention to bring people like you together: Globalistas that enjoy and appreciate the value of cultural diversity and that have such an incredible energy to share. Chicago is a phenomenal city for this. I want to promote Chicago as global cultural destination and create an inclusive community around this theme online and offline. Thank you very much for supporting this project and bringing your friends. You are a great addition to this community. 🙂
Claudia Urbano your event was successful. I was surprise how many people you gather that night via your social media website (Chicago Urbanite). It definitely helped put Machu Picchu Restaurant in front of new potential customers. We hope will continue to work together in the future.
