SAVE THE DATE:

The Great Shave 2012 is officially scheduled and will take place on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, at the Dank Haus, a beautiful German-American cultural center just a block away from the historic Merz Apothecary located in Lincoln Square. The Great Shave 2012 will run from approximately 6- 9:30 PM, and will offer a tremendous selection of local food and beverages from neighborhood chefs, brewers, retailers and restaurants.

This year 's location is a much larger space to accommodate more people along with a better space for live presentations. Though attendance will require a ticket, I have not yet received word as to the ticket cost, and have been informed the ticket cost is structured to merely cover the costs of hosting such a large event with food, beverage, experts, and giveaways! There will be seminars and demonstrations with some of the country's foremost wet shave experts. There will be numerous shave industry vendors, like last year, there to present their shave products. As a reminder, attendees, last year, received goodie bags with outstanding samples.

This is an event that is open to all, including propsective vendors. In fact, prospective vendors may inquire about space with Anthony of Merz Apothecary.

Last year's event was a blast! This year we can get all the Nook members toghether early so we can laugh it up!

Look forward to seeing you there!

Sounds like a great event, I saw the overview of last year's event. Would be a great event to attend for us wet shavers. Unfortunately, work will prevent me from making the trip this year. But I have a question for all the members out there. Does anyone know if an event similar to the Big Shave has been held in Canada, or in the North East (Toronto, Montreal, New York - Boston) or is it exclusive to Chicago? Let me know. And if the answer is negative, maybe us folks from the North East should try and get together and put on a similar function. So lets get the ball rolling and Happy Shaving. Sam.

would like to go; however, by the time I would make it, it would be time to turn around and head back. After dealing with my sister's wedding in September I will have no days off for quite a long time.

I cannot wait.

I really think the new location will be easier for parking, although I know I will have to leave work a few hours early to attend.

I need to make sure I have my piggy bank saved up for this event.

Thank you for bringing us this good news! I am glad to see that the Chicago Get Together will be a recurring event. It's great to read that Mantic, Lynn, geofatboy and manufacturer's representatives will also be there. The sponsors welcoming other vendors is a magnanimous gesture indeed, one for which they are to be commended. It is nice to have folks like these looking out for us.

The event organizers and sponsors really know how to put on a great show!
