by Stephanie Burke Saturday night we bundled up and headed out to Oak Park to Shane Campbell/The Suburban. The Suburban (the south room of the garage) contained works by Philip Vanderhyden, Zach Formwalt, Danna Vajda, and Chris Dorland, joined under the title of, descriptively enough, LARGE ABSTRACTIONS.

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, November 12 to Friday, December 3

What better way to end off the night but with cookies?  Oh, First Fridays is a cash bar, by the way.  Straight out of a David Cross routine, you've got to buy tickets and then exchange those for your drinks.  Drink tickets are non-refundable, so figure out what you're going to drink before you pay for your tickets.  We bought $20 in tickets.  I had a 10-ticket Bombay Sapphire martini, Steph had a 5-ticket beer, and then with our remaining 5 tickets we split one last beer.  I kind of wanted to have a few more drinks and then go watch Black Swan, but some friends called to invite us to the Brauhaus in Lincoln Square for sausage and boots of beer.  Which was great.  Black Swan was great too, we saw it a few days later.
