Party Photos: Cocktails in Chicago
At Sonotheque, 06.24.03

You can tell Sonotheque is a cool place because it is nearly impossible to find. There's no sign outside, no street number posted, and a maze to conquer before you could reach the main room. But, silly cool folks, those obstacles were no match for mb's crew of Chicago investigative reporters. In fact, media pros of all sorts found their way in, where our gal Taffy and more than 100 Big Shouldered new friends had a great time drinking, schmoozing, and getting to know one another.
