OBSERVE THE SCORE RADIO BROADCAST
The SCORE, Chicago’s Sports Radio (AM 670), will broadcast its popular afternoon drive-time radio show from right here at Hawthorne from 2:00 to 7:00 PM next Friday to commemorate our Friday After Thanksgiving Event. The broadcast site will be on the first floor, near the new sports bar.
Stop by the site and watch the show as it goes out, live, to the listening audience. You might even score some SCORE giveaways.
VISIT THE EXHIBITORS
We are putting the final touches on an exhibit area for the Friday After Thanksgiving Event. Our tentative list of exhibitors includes Ditka Wine and Cigars, a coffee company, a jeweler, a company offering a free golf swing analysis, and more. Check out the exhibitors because there’s bound to be several of interest to you.
GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS
“Girls, girls, girls” sang Motley Crue in the title song from their 1987 smash album. In what has become a tradition on special days at Hawthorne, we will again have our Parade of Pulchritude. Our partner, Budweiser, is sending the Bud Girls to help us celebrate the Friday After Thanksgiving Event. Not to be outdone, we are adding our new Hawthorne Fillies to the mix. Finally, the Beulah Twins, all the way from Ohio, will complete our Parade.
The Teams of Temptresses will be circulating through the building. You will have the opportunity to meet them, and to have your picture taken with them. So, comb your hair!
You’ve been given more than a dozen reasons to be here, at Hawthorne, next Friday for our fun-filled and action-packed Friday After Thanksgiving Event. And I haven’t even mentioned, yet, a full card of exciting live Thoroughbred racing for your watching and wagering pleasure. Don’t spend next Friday at the overcrowded mall, or sitting in front of a TV in an actionless setting. Join us here at Hawthorne. And don’t be late – remember, first post reverts to 1:10 PM next Friday!
