Soul & Smoke will be at MashUp! Will you be there?

Talk about a power duo, Heather Bublick and Chef D'andre Carter started the Soul & Smoke bbq juggernaut right here in Evanston.

You see their trucks EVERYWHERE. They're at every festival, every event, and they have new locations popping up all over the Chicago area. But before all of that, Soul & Smoke was at MashUp hanging out with us!

We're so proud of our longtime Evanston Chamber members and support them on their quest for world domination.

Want to know what Soul & Smoke is serving up on Wednesday at The Autobarn? Crank that volume and let Chef D'andre enlighten you. We can't wait.

Wendy and Clarence will be at MashUp! Will you?

The dynamic duo behind the C & W Market and Ice Cream Parlor empire! Wendy and Clarence Weaver are the guardians of the northwest corner of Church & Dodge.

After they wrap up serving ETHS students during the after school rush on Wednesday, they'll be at The Autobarn serving up ice cream at MashUp! As Clarence mentions here, they'll also be looking to defend their "Best of ChowDown at MashUp" award for best dessert from MashUp last year. (This isn't just a food fest and fundraiser, it's also a friendly competition 😏)

There will be 40 restaurants and cafes serving up the goods at MashUp this year. We can't thank all of these iconic Evanston institutions enough for supporting Evanston Chamber and the local business community.

You have literally 2 days left to register for MashUp! Do it now! https://www.evchamber.com/mashup-2023/

Ann will be at MashUp! Will you?

Former City Council enforcer Ann Rainey is a longtime MashUp super fan. She's a true friend, who goes out of her way to make sure none of her acquaintances will be sitting on the couch next Wednesday (11/8) when they should be at Autobarn for MashUp 2023.

Just over 40 of the North Shore's best restaurants will be at MashUp. 41 to be exact. Not quite 50. But we can assure you that Cheryl from Hecky's Barbecue, who makes a cameo in this video, will be there serving up some of Evanston's most legendary meat.

MashUp is 8 days away. We'd recommend registering now because walk-in tickets will not be available at the door: https://www.evchamber.com/mashup-2023/

Paul will be at MashUp 2023! Will you be there?

You've probably seen this guy biking around Evanston before. Did you know he's one of the most important City of Evanston employees, a human rolodex of business connections, and an all-around friendly dude?

Paul Zalmezak (we call him "Paul Z") is the City of Evanston Illinois Government's Economic Development Manager. This guy is involved in literally all the initiatives that make our local business community thrive.

He's a MashUp regular and we know he'll be closing out the party at the end of the night on Wednesday 11/8 with us, even though he's a dad and has to get home to his family eventually.

Come hang out with Paul and all of the other coolest people on Evanston at MashUp at Autobarn. TWO WEEKS AWAY.
