I found out this morning that the video I shot last month for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants helped the Chicago restaurants won the 'Extreme Hospitality' competition. 50 restaurant Executive Chefs and General Managers across the country voted, and Chicago came out at #1. Goodness!
This may mean some "props" for yours truly, but definitely means employees of the five Chicago restaurants get an expenses-paid party. If you aren't familiar with how the restaurant industry works, that's a euphemism for an evening of booze, food, and debauchery on the corporate dime. Double win!
