O’Brien, Zielbauer, Payton — Meet 10 Cheeky Chi Chicks

CheekyChicago honors amazing women on a daily basis, but once a year, it pulls together the cream of the crop (10 to be exact), who are kicking ass in business and the community. Seriously, this year's lineup includes everyone from the fabulous makeup artist Shannon O'Brien (read her tips here!) to political correspondent and author Laura Schwartz (she's a doll!). We could go on about all of the fabulous "chicks," but we suggest you meet the role models yourself this Thursday, January 17, at the fourth annual Cheekiest Chicks of 2013 celebration.

The soirée starts at 7 p.m. at the PUBLIC Hotel and includes vodka cocktails, celebratory champ, passed hors d'oeuvres (think lobster sushi rolls and chicken samosas), a dessert station, and tunes courtesy of DJ Megan Taylor. And
with such a fabulous mix of ladies present, you just might get inspired to start your own gig of some kind. Who knows? Maybe we'll see you on the list in 2014. Better get busy.

Tickets to the bash are $20 online or $25 at the door.

PUBLIC Hotel, 1301 North State Parkway (between Goethe and Banks streets); 312-787-3700.
