14 - Alpha Phi International

Meet Stefania, Manager of Leadership and Training Initiatives for the Alpha Phi headquarters in Evanston. What does a sorority headquarters do, you ask? Well in this episode Stefania braves an hour in the heatwave without AC to tell us all about the business of Greek Letter Organizations. She also lays in to the recent change to the Chicago Library museum passes, calls out lame Chicago tourists that won't leave the Goldcoast and shares The Drawing Room and Watershed - two downtown bars that actually don't suck.
