Sometimes all we need in life is a little magic. Lucky for the Chicago Elite Squad, the AT&T Flagship store on Michigan Avenue was ready to offer up some wizardry to end 2018 in the best way possible: On December 11, 2018, they invited 100 Elites for a private party to show off their Fantastic Beasts in-store experience.
AT&T rockstars Graham and Chelsia worked hard with Yelp Chicago Community Manager Anna K to make the night a truly memorable one. After putting their heads together, AT&T and Yelp wrangled fantastic local coffee company Black Fodder Coffee for caffeine, Cook Au Vin French catering for crepes, and DJ Kyle Conley from the DJ Firm for the evening’s music.
Upon arrival, each Elite received an official Fantastic Beasts goodie bag from Warner Bros., a blue macaron from Petit Margeaux, and a blank passport. From there, the task was simple and fun: visit each interactive station throughout the space, and after each station, one would receive a sticker. Once each person’s passport was full of stickers, they’d bring it back to the check-in table to receive one of two official pieces of Fantastic Beasts swag: either a set of ornaments featuring beasts from the film, or an official Warner Bros. licensed Albus Dumbledore wand! Pretty sweet, right?!
Not only were Elites able to interact with anything and everything wizard-y throughout the night, but there were plenty of photo opportunities and a VR experience as well. It was truly a ~magical~ way to end 2018, and we couldn’t have done it without the incredible team at AT&T and all of the local businesses present!
