Sarah Catherine (aka the Spice to my Sugar) finally returned to the Chi a couple weeks ago! As you may have seen from our Insta, we have had a jam-packed calendar of parties and events, trying new restaurants, and of course all the festivities surrounding Lolla weekend. Here are some of our highlights :)
We had a blast at the Cheeky Chicago Cheekiest Guys of Summer Party at Oak Street Beach! Not only were all the honored guys so darn cute, but in our opinion there's nothing better than a beach party complete with a huge spread of delicious food from Oak Street Beach Food + Drink and some signature vodka cocktails from Yacht Club. The Cheekiest Guys of Summer were such eye candy and included: Chris Haisma( Director of Operations at BOKA Group and the man behind some of the most divine food in Chicago), Chris LaMorte( Editor of Urban Daddy), Jivish Toor( fabulous menswear designer of J. Toor), Jeff Goldford( who crooned his way into our hearts at the party, check his EP here), Ed Swiderski( of Bachelorette) and more!
We loved mingling with these handsome gentlemen and especially loved talking with Ed Swiderski, Season 5 Winner of The Bachelorette. As huge Bachelor/Bachelorette fans, we had to get the scoop on what it's really like to be on the show.
We also want to give a special shout out to two guys (Jack Gleason and Jeff Larson) who we feel are pretty much the male versions of ourselves. These two day traders are known as Rockstar Traders. Best friends just like us, we love that they bring their unique style to everything they do. Stay on the look out for big things from them!
So, you probably know by now that we are huge fans of The Underground. When it came time to make our after party plans for Lolla weekend, there was really only one obvious place we knew we were headed. The Underground, operated by Billy Dec, Arturo Gomez, and the rest of the wonderful crew over at Rockit Ranch Productions finally reopened it's doors this past Thursday! The new space has been completely remodeled and features a new, swanky room called " The Lounge", which we love to call "The Gatsby Room". This new room is complete with chandeliers, plush leather couches, and includes a selection of fine wines, and of course champagne. The Underground was host to a killer lineup of DJs and special guests including, DJ Samantha Ronson, DJ Mom Jeans, DJ Irie, and DJ Cobra, Ryan Cabrera and DJ Rock City. Special guests included Randy Jackson, Imagine Dragons, Lil Jon, Jaslene Gonzalez, Jeremy Fraites of The Lumineers, and more. It was a star studded weekend filled with fabulosity and we were loving every minute of it.
We are SO glad to be back and bringing you more events, fashion, and food than ever before! Stay tuned this week as we take you on a tour of some of Chicago's best tacos, and also as we introduce you to a Chicago designer you will fall in love with!
