On Monday, March 11, 2013 Red Tricycle, a digital city guide for parents, launched its first-ever Chicago edition. The San Francisco-based media company, which has built a loyal following in six major metro areas and delivers one million email newsletters each week packed with insider tips to families in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, New York City and SoCal, is now pedaling into the Windy City.
To commemorate the launch of Red Tricycle Chicago, the city’s most influential moms, dads and their kids came together to celebrate. On Monday, March 11, Red Tricycle hosted an exclusive party to celebrate the launch of Red Tricycle Chicago, honor the 2012 winners of Chicago’s Totally Awesome Awards and honor Chicago Power Moms at Little Beans Cafe, one of the coolest indoor playspaces and cafes for Chicago parents.
Red Tricycle’s CEO and Founder Jacqui Boland says, “We’re really excited to open our first edition in the Midwest. Chicago has a strong and well connected parenting community and we’re overwhelmed by the warm welcome and great demand we have received from Chicago parents.”
Event attendees included Dawn Hasbrouck, Fox 32 News Morning Anchor, Sharon Schneider, CEO and Founder of internet start-up MoxieJean, Lindsay Pinchuk, Founder of Bump Club Chicago, and Sarah Meier Cobb, President of Neighborhood Parents Network of Chicago (NPN), as well as over 100 moms and kids.
Kelly Aiglon, Red Tricycle’s Chicago City Editor and longtime media veteran in the parenting space, adds: “Chicago is the ultimate family-friendly city and we’re ready to help fun-loving parents navigate all there is to see and do here. Our writers are adventurers and explorers, most of the time with their kids in tow, and they’ll be seeking out truly original insider experiences that are a blast for all ages.”
