Crain’s Shia Kapos: A-list names in business, politics…

Crain’s Shia Kapos on the Chicago holiday party scene:

…The best parties are those that bring together A-list names in business, politics, philanthropy and culture.

At Thom Serafin’s 15th annual soiree, at Butch McGuire’s, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford (Republican) and former Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias (Democrat) schmoozed in the same crowded room.

I spent longer there than I do at most parties because there was an interesting name wherever you turned. Arlington Park owner Dick Duchossois and venture capitalist and philanthropist Bruce Rauner, an interesting newcomer to the event, were rubbing elbows with government watchdog Andy Shaw (he always knows everyone in the room).
