Interested in local foods, sustainability, conscientious living, authentic and unadulterated presentations. An ironic bent or a statement from the past, re-worked for today is always appreciated.

Creative stylings and ironic juxtapositions of an independent nature.

Mode of transportation: Bike or Blue Line. Keep it simple.

Clothing: Anything vintage. Levis. Sundresses. Sneakers/no socks.  Nostalgic meets reinvention.

Music: Florence and the Machine, T-Rex, Joan Jett, Stray Cats, Jeff Buckley, Dwight Yoakam


Reclaimed wood passing trays of un-filtered apple juice with lime.  Large galvanized tubs filled with Ice, PBR and Goose Island’s Sofie and Pere Jaques.

Food served in/on single-use serviceware Vivterra products and drinks served in garage-sale collected glassware.

Mismatched vintage tables and chairs set among a self -landscaped garden filled with indigenous plants from the Midwestern prairie – juxtaposed against the downtown skyline at sunset. Candles set in paper lunch bags illuminate the ground so that guests can see where they’re going after sunset.
