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.

Monday Morning Quarterback, July 23

by Jeriah Hildwine and Stephanie Burke S: First stop for the night was Ken Saunders. Lured by the promise of dirty martinis, we showed up right at 5pm. I think that glass art is one of those mediums that are often shrugged off by artists (myself included), relegated to “craft” status and told to stay... Read more »
