Hebru Brantley featured at Chicago Cultural Center

I love the collaborative relationship between Hebru Brantley and the city of Chicago. With the ever-growing fame he’s achieved nationwide, he stays in Chicago, supporting and growing the local art scene, and the city has reciprocated, supporting his public sculptures and solo exhibits. Brantley has gotten a lot of recognition (rightfully so) in Chicago, but … Continue reading

OOTD: Safari Pants

After finally finding out what “OOTD” stands for (Outfit Of The Day), I’ve started to enlist my co-workers to help me document some of my fave outfits. For my first OOTD collage, I had to feature my safari print pants. I got these from Top Shop last year, and although I was a little shy … Continue reading

Since our hotel was on the other side of Canal Street from the French Quarter, every day we'd cross the trolley rails to start that day's adventure.

The French Quarter: A New Orleans Walking Tour

We crammed a lot into our four-day New Orleans trip, but a large chunk of our days was spent just walking up and down the streets of the French Quarter. Here is my photo diary of our explorations.

Things were getting creepy in New Orleans...

4 days, 3 nights in New Orleans

After many years in the making, Erika and I finally took a trip out to New Orleans together. I had only been out there once, about 10 years ago, right before Hurricane Katrina, and she had never been. We stayed just a couple blocks from the French Quarter, so our four days were filled with … Continue reading

Regardless, there are several R&B tracks that I’ve discovered lately that seem to speak to my mixed emotions perfectly. Enjoy this playlist…   For … Continue reading

Las Vegas: A Wedding, A Concert, A Breakfast Buffet

During my first-ever trip to Las Vegas, I left with a few things on my to do list. Namely: see a concert, lounge by the pool and gamble. Luckily, my friend who first introduced me to Vegas brought me back there just six months later to be a guest at her wedding! The flight to … Continue reading

Christopher Wool at the Art Institute

During last month’s Unveiled Happy Hour for the Evening Associates at the Art Institute, I checked out the Christopher Wool exhibit, being featured now through May 11. Christopher Wool is an abstract painter from Chicago who’s also really well known for his text-based works. He seems to be pulling in some pretty impressive bids at … Continue reading

Recap: SXSW 2014

I had the chance to attend SXSW for the third time this year, on behalf of my client Muve Music & Cricket Wireless. It was an awesome opportunity to get to interview and hear nearly 30 bands — all inside a glass cube right on 4th & Congress! Our headliners Tech N9ne, Ana Tijoux & … Continue reading

RECAP: Art Basel Miami Beach 2014 Day 4 – Red Dot Fair, Art Miami & Context

My last day at Art Basel in Miami Beach, I headed to the Wynwood neighborhood to check out yet more satellite fairs, including the Red Dot Fair, Context and Art Miami. I was about to say these were some of my favorite shows, but then I realize I’ve been saying that about almost every one. … Continue reading

Tus Soni2: Los Hollywood, Troker & Pommez Internacional

Friday I headed to Subterranean to catch the last night of the Tus Soni2 Indie Latin Music Concert Series. I was especially excited to see Los Hollywood headline after learning about them from my co-worker, but also enjoyed catching the two opening acts – Troker and Pommez Internacional. First things first – Los Hollywood. I’d … Continue reading
