PHOTO RECAP: #TBT Eli's Cheesecake Bakery Behind The Scenes -- Social Media Breakfast 2013

Happy National Cheesecake Day(s) 

Here at ChiIL Mama we're celebrating with an early throwback Thursday to this time last year, when we were super stoked to be invited to Eli's Cheesecake's First Annual Social Media Breakfast. Tomorrow we'll be back there bright and early to do it all over again... kinda like the Groundhog Day movie, but far more delicious.

We were elated to be invited back again for 2014!

Today--July 30th is evidently the "official" National Cheesecake Day, but it's too tasty to last just 24 hours. Chicago's famous Eli's Cheesecake Bakery is celebrating for days, from July 30th through August 3rd with tasty free cheesecake giveaways on site and downtown in a roving Cheesecakemobile!

Even if you don't work in Social Media, there will be samples galore, music, and so much more available to the general public. Come on out!

ChiIL Mama's Adventures at Eli's Cheesecake Bakery Social Media Breakfast 2013 #TBT 

We sampled cheesecakes and played a naming game, met their management & social media team... 

Then we got a sneak peek behind the scenes, in the kitchens where all the magic happens. 


This involved all the social media mavens donning hair nets, gloves, and jackets to keep the kitchens surgery suite clean... before we learned how Eli's operates! Don't we all look like a gaggle of doctors?

Once we got the behind the scenes tour, we broke into teams for a timed challenge and raced to decorate cheesecakes. 

My team WON! Yes, I'm the cheesecake queen. Though all we won were bragging rights, which was a little disappointing. Still they did send everyone in the whole tour home with a famous plain, frozen Eli's Cheesecake. 

I was so hoping for one of the fancy, decadent Chocolate Turtle ones we worked on, but someone else on my team got luck of the draw. Ah well. It was a fun event.

Thanks again to Eli's for hosting us all!  Keep on spreading the joy and deliciousness. Cheesecakes rule.
