Northcenter Chamber Plans For 2011

By Mike Fourcher | Friday, January 7, 2011

NorthCenter Chamber of CommerceThe Northcenter Chamber of Commerce is holding their annual meeting next Tuesday, and they plan to announce a full slate of events for next year.

The Chamber plans for 11 monthly business luncheons on the fourth Thursday of every month except December, Ribfest Chicago and much more.

The Chamber’s annual meeting is coming up on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 6-8 p.m. at Bad Apple, 4300 N. Lincoln Ave.

Below is a preliminary list of the Chamber’s planned events for 2011.

And on a lighter note, the Chamber will celebrate the 22nd Anniversary of the Patrick Swayze movie “Road House” on August 23.

Why “Road House”?

“Because it’s Patrick Swayze’s Road House,” says Executive Director Garrett FitzGerald. “When you get a minute, take a look at Roger Ebert’s review of the movie. It’s probably some of the best reading you’ll see.”

Ebert’s 1989 review finishes with, “This is not a good movie. But viewed in the right frame of mind, it is not a boring one, either.”

    I think that the Road House event needs to be included in this year’s Summer Brochure.
