So dig it – we’re kicking things in to high gear for the upcoming Chicago fall and winter seasons and you’re here, which means you must care (which is awesome). It’s all good news so there isn’t really a bad place to start – I suppose going in order works.
This coming Wednesday will be the first Pour Souls workshop. We’re going to give some members of the Chicago food community a chance to check us out and tell you how dope the classes are – it gets old just coming from us right?
If you don’t know what Dose Market is, you should. Co-founders Emily Fiffer (DailyCandy Chicago), Heather Sperling (TastingTable.com), Jessica Herman (TimeOut Chicago) and April Francis (AF, The Haute Closet) are some of the city’s leading ladies as far as food and fashion are concerned and have put together a shopper’s paradise. Combining great food, local designers and even my boy Floyd A. Davis’ DOPE Gentleman’s Boomboxes, the Dosettes have successfully created something the likes of which Chicagoans have never seen. Before we actually do the market, DailyCandy Chicago is going to feature Pour Souls this coming Wednesday – yes, that does make Emily our favorite.
Okay, okay, enough fawning – the point is, these ladies are doing something awesome and they’ve asked Pour Souls to be a part of it. Coming in January, we’ll be leading folks through some interactive mixology workshops AT Dose Market – come check us out, you might get to stand next to one of the lovely Dosettes (yes, it’s incredibly intimidating).
On November 12, Pour Souls will be leading some interactive mixology sessions at the Design Your Life event with the lovely Ms. Whitney Port. Needless to say, this is going to be an incredible event.
Let’s see….what’s next? Oh right. TIMEOUT Chicago’s Julia Kramer will be featuring Pour Souls in the first T.O. issue of November – sick. Obviously this is huge for Julia, we don’t really do interviews…we joke, we kid.
Lastly, Pour Souls is happy to announce that we were accepted into Indie Wed. Without question Indie Wed is the coolest wedding show in the city, offering independent companies the chance to connect with independently-spirited couples. Indie Wed will be happening January 28 from 10am til 4pm at the Ravenswood Event Center (4043 N. Ravenswood, Chicago, IL.).
That’s it…for now. Pour Souls would like to thank everyone who has “Liked” the Facebook page, signed up for classes, taken time out to speak with Tim at an event OR completely copied our product and renamed it – really, it all means a lot. Pour Souls, out.
