The past sunny week has gotten me into beach weather, literally. I've been sitting at the edge of my pool dreaming that my husband already got it ready for the summer; he hasn't. Since my bubble has busted in that end, there is one very BEACHY event coming up that is getting me back into that mood. "Come Sail Away" Fashion show & Fireworks on the beach (yes fireworks too) is coming. This sunny event is appearing on Wednesday June 12 at Castaways (1603 North Lake Shore Drive) from 6:30-10:30pm.
So why attend this event when you could be stranded in a pool somewhere with a cocktail in hand? First, because this is a fashion show on the damn beach (that NEVER happens). Second, you get a show (featuring amazing Chicago designers) and fireworks!! This affordable event (yes you'll still have money left over for an actual vacation) with general admission tickets starting at ONLY $10 (right now ONLY till May 24, then it goes up to $20), and VIP (now only $25) tickets discounted currently till May 24, get them here.
So VIP guests get early check in at 6:30 and a champagne cocktail lounge for an hour (yes I am running), regular check in is at 7:30pm. The show featuring one of my fave designers Rosina Mae start at 8pm (and it'll be hot just like the weather), and don't worry the party doesn't end there. 9:30pm is when there is live fireworks & music!! So get your tickets now and enjoy another stellar event bought to you by Benjamin Cottrell & Shari Duffy!! Also, it is beach attire and ONLY 500 tickets will be sold (none at the door).
So going back to my pool not being ready (I sound all fancy and stuff but it's an above ground pool that I would NEVER label as fancy), my hubby surprised me and the kids with a trip to Florida; so don't feel too bad for me. I'll make sure to post pics for everyone. In the meanwhile, hope your all getting the "Come Sail Away" tickets!!!
