It’s not summer without a fiesta! At Dose, we take the season quite seriously — here’s how to squeeze the most out of the heat and make it in the shade at Dose Market this Sunday, July 29:
Ready for a refreshing wine spritzer? Chef Theo at Ripasso serves up an orange delight, gratis, to start your Sunday off right. What to eat? Everything’s right about Shaw’s Crab House lobster rolls, made-to-order pizza from The Rolling Stonebaker and Falafill’s summertime mezza bowls.
Just want to stay in the A/C all day? Dress up your space with a stunning art print from Debbie Carlos, throw on a KraeO wrap to keep your shoulders happy and drench your wrists in GAIA’s Italian, shell- and wood-inlaid cuffs.
What is Sunday without a little extravagance? We recommend a Lakeview-roasted Bow Truss Coffee Roasters pour over, a sip of Kishr, a Dose-inspired Glazed & Infused doughnut, and going all the way with truffle-flavored cotton candy from Spun Confections.
Ianneci’s got a fresh crop of statement jewels and Dose Cause The Honeycomb Project delivers divinely scented soap and immune-boosting local honey.
Trying to keep it real cool? Chill out with an icy treat from the geniuses at Salted Caramel and stock up at Pigtale Twist to ensure your summer salads are dressed to the nines.
Feel like a few more summer staples will do your closet right? Step up to the sale rack at Trillium and score pieces from the likes of LNA, Cynthia Vincent and Dannijo, pop in to check out what’s coming up indie this summer at Emerging Thoughts and swing by Anke Loh to scoop up the most perfect hostess dress.
Love it when Dosers collaborate? We do, too. Chocolate Twist and Rare Bird Preserves put their spin on indulgent deliciousness with a very special treat available only at Dose Market.
And are you, like us, just looking to put a little fun in your Sunday? Chris Petrakos will be doing on-the-spot astrology, and ShimBaby is sure to delight anyone who’s just welcomed a little one into the world.
