SOFA Chicago: 11/4/2011 to 11/6/2011

All told, it was an epic weekend, full of art, snacks, and good times.

Check out the slideshow for images from Artropolis (Art Chicago/NEXT), some Black Pass events,... Read more »

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, September 10th, 2010

The West Loop was pretty dry.  Steph noticed at Tony Wight that some guests got Goose Island, others got Pabst.  (She got Pabst.)  When I went in, it was packed, and I didn't see any beer anywhere.  Up the street, at 119 Peoria, the Pernod people were set up, selling Pernod Absinthe Sours and Old Fashioneds for a $5 donation.  Linda Warren did still have her famous punch, though!

Monday Morning Quarterback, September 10th, 2010

Jeriah:  Looking at the surface of these things up close, you get curious about how they were made.  Some kind of wood inlay, it seems.  They were neat-o.  Unforunately it seems we didn't get any images from Linda Warren, our last stop, which had a great show of Chuck Walker's work!

Snack Time Report, Friday, January 8th

This week’s snack report reads like an eight-year-old on a road trip:  wine, wine, wine!  Snacks were few and far between as was beer, but I must have put away at least a bottle’s worth of white and about half that worth of red. Your faithful snacker, checking out work by Gregory Jacobsen. We started... Read more »
