Making the Most of Macaroni

A Note from Your Publisher

By Debra Flanagan, Publisher May 30, 2024

I recently asked the community of Macaroni Publishers, if there was a way to see our events by category. Boom - Someone pointed out that there is a Category Drop down on the calendar. HA! - Total brain fart. I knew I was labeling events under different categories on the back-end, but that drop-down feature blew right by me. Thus, it dawned on me that you could be missing stuff too.

Here is a list of tips for maximizing the value of Macaroni KID.

1. If you haven't subscribed yet, subscribe to receive free, weekly, e-newsletters so you don't miss anything. If you are interested in resources and events in the city, you might want to subscribe to our other Macaroni KID edition: Macaroni KID Chicago Northside.

2. You can check out our events by category, Date Nights, MNOs, FREE, etc.

3. Check out our Business Directory when looking for a local small business - also organized by category and neighborhood.

4. Check out our Guides, which continue to grow, to give you comprehensive lists of things to do.

5. Send feedback. We are listening!

6. Follow us on Facebook, and "like" our posts, for up to the latest and greatest information. A lot happens between newsletters.

7. Follow us on Instagram if that's more your thing. All posts can be accessed via links in our bio.

8. Enter our giveaway contests. Your odds are pretty good. If you are already a subscriber, you have nothing to lose

9. Since being purchased by CertifiKID, we are able to offer some incredible discounts you won't find anywhere else. Some of the best ones can be found in the website sidebars.

10. Tell the businesses and events you find that Macaroni KID sent you, and help spread the word! The bigger the community, the more value we can provide!
