The Smart Jewelry Show Chicago

Posted on | April 29, 2010 | 6 Comments

Just got back from a great trip to Chicago for the Smart Jewelry Show where I was honored to be a featured speaker on social media for jewelers. I also hosted a great party at the Billy Goat Tavern for the Facebook Jewelers Network. I’m happy to say that they both went very well. The talk was with my colleagues Dan Gordon and Donna Jolly.  We had a packed room and an active Q & A after.

The party was a ton of fun. I want to thank my new friend, Mario Macias, for choosing the venue. The Billy Goat Tavern is a Chicago landmark, made famous from the Bill Murray SNL skit Cheeseborger, Cheeseborger. When I first went there to check it out I admit that I was a little hesitant. I wasn’t really sure if a bunch of jewelers would be willing to go to a complete dive under a bridge like this one. Luckily, I was wrong and it went over well. Check out the video from the party and my wife enjoying their signature drink “The Horny Goat”…
