Hey Chicago, gdgt live returns to The Windy City on May 11th!


Back in March we partied with gdgt Live at SXSW and had a blast, but we know a lot of you were not able to make it out to Texas. That’s ok because the gdgt crew is traveling across the country and they have a bunch more tour dates already lined up.

The next gdgt Live event takes place in Chicago on Friday, May 11th. We found that Chicago is the #2 city for Android nerds, so we are expecting a great turnout for this event.

If you have never heard of gdgt Live, it’s free, all-ages, and open to the public. These shows provide a great opportunity to meet people from the companies you love, check out their latest products, and hang out with your peers.

For this show they will have new gdgt t-shirts and new gdgt-branded iPhone cases from Speck for the first several hundred folks who join us, so make sure you get there early (Yo Speck, where’s the Android love?). Of course, they’ll also have a whole bunch of gadgets to win – but only if you show up.

I’ve never been to Chicago, but I’m thinking of attending. The only problem is I’ll be in New Orleans for CTIA on May 8-10th, so I don’t know if I can work out the travel to get there on time. If you do plan to attend, please leave a comment below so fellow Android fans will know you are coming.

Please tell your friends and help spread the word on all your favorite social sites. The official Twitter hashtag is #gdgtChicago. Head over to the gdgt Live Chicago page for the current list of sponsors.

Where: The Tribune Building, 435 N Michigan Ave, Chicago
When: Friday, May 11th — 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Why: Because we know you love gadgets as much as we do!

      STIG – Do you know of a group or community of Android peeps / fans is CHI? I am thinking of flying Taylor out for some client meetings with brands, and if there is a group of Android fans in Chi that would be a double bonus / reason for us to have him there. It is always great to meet up with the community that shapes this site, culture and is helping shape the trends in the industry via purchase habits, opinions and influence amongst your circle(s).
