On Sunday, September 21st our very first West Loop Dose happened at the awesome Morgan MFG and was loved by more than 2000 Dose-goers eating, shopping, laughing, lounging and scoring to the sounds of DJ duo We Theory. Everyone made it a great day for our eighty-five Dosers: so many sold out before the day was over and/or had their best Dose ever! This is HUGE. Not to mention this Dose launched more than a dozen products and introduced more than 20 new Dosers to the Dose fold. THANK YOU to all who came out to support the incredible talent we have here in Chicago (we name names below!) A special thanks goes out to Goose Island and La Sirena Clandestina for the free brews and cocktails to fuel the day (Derek and Nina put in overtime behind the bar) and to Next Star Vodka and Few Spirits for the lovely tastes of their fine spirits. We adored having White Mystery play a half-hour set on the staircase, the poets of Poems While You Wait click-clacking away creating fine verse for all who inquired and all the spirit in the Nina Palomba x Smilebooth photobooth (photos right this way)! Eva Deitch was our fantastic photographer: check out all the moments she captured on Facebook and see some of our favorites below. We know you found some great stuff to love at the Dose bomb (and perhaps a human to love if you rocked an electric yellow Dose heart). If you need to contact any of the September 2014 Dosers you’ll find the full list of participating Dosers below with links to connect with all of them. Happy Autumn and see you at the HoliDose on Sunday, December 14th at the unbelievably beautiful Venue One at 1034 W Randolph! Thank you again for such a warm welcome to the neighborhood and we’ll see you again — every season. Dose is officially quarterly, with March, June, September and December dates planned for 2015. See you again real soon! xx The Dosettes
We Theory took a short break so White Mystery could rock the staircase at 2pm!
Perhaps our favorite shot from the Dose Bomb, Eva captured a mom and her two kids all kitted out and toting a fresh baguette from PQM!
Not to project or anything, but … what a lucky guy! Love having groups of besties rock the Dose!
Did you try out the Oculus Rift in the We Theory living room? This guy was surfing (and also in on #crushedatdose!)
Steven and McKenzie help make Dose happen and smuggled in an illicit pup, the little Taxi!
We adore the happy smile on the face of this Dose-goer, picking up an incredible handmade leather pillow by Doser Liv + Work.
Nicole of The Ørder was set up to pre-sell her latest collection of gorgeous wearables in the blackest of blacks.
The incredible Gillion Carrara rocked the Dose Bomb with her signature aplomb (and a Dose Heart to boot!)
Matt brought his home and gift boutique, Teak & Soxy, from Wisconsin. His Soxiness made the cover of our Facebook page!
Artfully Disheveled launched at Dose #1 and Chris came all the way from Cincinnati to be at the Dose Bomb to launch the latest collection.
Relive the glory by having a listen to our Dose Bomb theme song and go ahead, cut a rug! Thank you again for a great day at the Dose Bomb. We’ll never forget the 21st of September! You’ll find all the photos on Facebook.
