Eating Sauce & Bread Kitchen’s smoky pork nachos, devouring Allie Levitt’s famed Migas bark (it’s back!), clinking glasses of bubbly, and finishing off holiday shopping in one fell swoop: This is our idea of a dreamy evening. If you feel the same, come fête with us this Thursday night from 6-10 p.m. at Room 1520.
No gifting game plan? No problem. Fête’s 30 vendors will surely inspire. (See below to get excited.)
Still haven’t sent those holiday cards? Get silly in front of the camera with Smilebooth, and order your custom cards the next day.
As for doing good, say hello to Fresh Moves. Fête will donate a portion of our proceeds to the CTA-bus-turned-produce-delivery-truck, which services local food deserts. Come Thursday, the truck will be parked outside of Room 1520. Hop on board, and bring your reusable bags: Fresh produce will be for sale, too.
And finally, don’t forget your dancing shoes. Scottie McNiece of Uncanned Music is bringing the noise with a custom soundtrack. What’s a party without a playlist?
Oh, and don’t think for a moment we forgot your gift. We’ll be raffling off two special presents from Suitor, Chicago’s favorite stationery line.
