2)  If you haven't already done so, please RSVP for our KM Chicago Holiday Event.  More details below:

It has become a tradition that we devote our December meeting to sharing food and wine in a festive holiday setting.  Once again in 2011 Randy Russell will present the wine and food pairings.  This will be the 10th year that Randy has led this spirited event.  We hope you can join us.

The event will be held on Tuesday, 13 December, 5:30-7 PM at the Dow Jones conference room.  For obvious reasons there will be no dial in or web presentation.  Randy will share 6 wines and the accompanying food pairings.  There will be a presentation about each of the wines and ample time for questions.  A take home program is also provided to help with your shopping.

To be sure we have sufficient food and wine an RSVP is required for this event.  Please send an email to by close of business on Friday, 9 December.  Let us know who is attending and how many.  This is a great opportunity to bring a colleague or spouse and introduce them to your KM friends.  Due to the capacity of the room, we will limit the number of attendees.

To cover the cost of the food and wine, the price for the event is $20/pp.  The money will be collected at the event so please bring cash or a check with you.  Sorry we can not accept credit cards.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
