Social Chicagoan was made for just that - to get social in Chicago! The founder, melissa, had the idea to create a platform that would help bring people together. The goal is to create a space both online and in person that supports and encourages our community. Whether it be curating our own events or promoting others whom we believe hold our same values - we cannot wait to share it all with you.

Let's do stuff.
