“Narratives and the Production of Emotional Meanings in Public Spaces”
Donileen Loseke, University of South Florida
Symbolic Interactionist Banquet THURS 6:45 - ?? pm
RESERVATION REQUIRED, WITH CHECK, BY MARCH 10
Following the Peter Hall Lecture, we will gather at 6:30 pm at the hotel’s Rush St doors to walk .4 miles to the Chicago Chop House at 60 West Ontario Street. I have reserved the Michigan Room (a private room). The room reservation is $150, but there are no minimums. We will order from the menu -- so everyone will be responsible for their own tab, plus their share of the room reservation cost. We must have a minimum of 20 to use the private room. If you make a reservation and are unable to attend at the last minute, we will be charged $35 for your ‘no-show.’
See the menu and photos of the restaurant at www.chicagochophouse.com
One description I read characterized the place as an "old school" steak and seafood restaurant.
Is your mouth watering?
To reserve your place at the SI banquet, please send me a check made out to the Chicago Chop House for $35 per person before March 10. Your check will be returned to you when you come to dinner!
But if you are unable to attend or cancel at the last minute – your check will cover your no-show so your fellow symbolic interactionists won’t have to cover that cost.
Questions about the banquet? Email banquet organizer Laurie Linhart. Or phone her at 515-988-4810.
