2011: Northeast Cooling’s Year in Review

Chicago River

It’s been an exciting year for Northeast Cooling! There have been so many exciting events for us in 2011 that we’d like to highlight a few. The year started off with a bang when when Mitch received stellar reviews from GIST regarding his use of Social Media to promote his Commercial Refrigeration business.  Mitch was lauded for his use of  Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook to better service his customers, and bring in new ones. In March Northeast Cooling sponsored its very first GameNight in Northbrook at Pinstripes. Bowling, bocce, and beverages certainly were a big hit. We can’t wait to visit them again! We helped sponsor the documentary about Twitter, Twittamentary by Singaporean film-maker, Siok Siok (@sioksiok) in April. Twittamentary examines how people interact and are effected daily on Twitter. Morningstar in Chicago provided the venue, @Ramon_DeLeon of Domino's Provided the food, and our own @padschicago was featured in the film. As Spring warmed into … [Read more...]

Cool Chicago Beer Events for November

BeerBistro-copy

Ice. Cold. Beer. Brings a smile to my face. One of the most important jobs we do here at Northeast Cooling is keeping the beer in Chicago nice and cold. Whether its commercial bottle coolers, keg coolers, or warehouse beer storage coolers we've got ya covered! Refrigeration is essential to beer and beer can be essential to a happy work week!  Even Benjamin Franklin is said to have been an avid beer drinker. The proclamation “God, created beer because He wants us to be happy,” is attributed to him! This may be a misquote, but a positive sentiment nonetheless. Speaking of beer making us happy, there are two upcoming beer events in Chicago that are worth checking out. Ninth Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer  This Saturday, November 12th check out the Ninth Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer at: Chicago Journeyman Plumbers' Local Union 130 Stephen M. Bailey Auditorium1340 W. Washington Blvd.  in Chicago.  Admission includes souvenir tasting glass, … [Read more...]
