During the time of the summer we like to cherish it and hang out at some good places. Some with a outdoor rooftop style area and some not. This next venue we are using is on of those that is properly equipped for good weather, good times, good peopleand just in case it rains a nice lounge called "the i-lounge"

Our Sunday Night series continues At The Godfrey Hotel's I/O Roofscape which is on their 4th floor and sports some greatviews of the western half of River North area.

This is just another way of socializing till people stop socializing because its Sunday and they have work the next day.
It's a good opportunity to meet other professionals who live and work in the downtown area and like to have fun on the weekends.
This is one of the hottest spots in the city right now and it probably will be for quite some time.

Dress code: relaxed but upscale. if you want to meet other people and make friends dress like its a relaxed cocktail party.

$10 cover. Will include a free drink ticket redeemable for one svedka mixed drink.
There will also be a special at $7 per glass on dry rose, Chardonnay and pinot grigio wine during the time we are there
