Get Dosed! | Sunday, October 14

Allow us to count the ways in which October’s Dose delivers a love-filled, whiskey-drinking, heart-warming, scarf-wrapping autumn! It’s going to be a fall fete at the River East Art Center on October 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as we welcome a slew of debut Dosers and Dose favorites rockin’ the freshest batches of food and fashion.

  • First things first! Relish in the flavors of fall with cider cocktails from Journeyman Distillery or a pour of killer pumpkin ale from Greenbush Brewing — gratis, as always.
  • Next, wake up with coffee and delights from new kid on the block, Gaslight Coffee Roasters, or chill out with an all-natural passion fruit ginger ale from Bruce Cost Ginger Ale.
  • Turn it up on the homefront and funkify your pad with the cool utilitarian designs of merkled — or go midcentury with Circa Modern.
  • Entertain your tastebuds with Lucila’s Homemade decadent dulce de leche and a dose of Salty Honey pie straight from The Sugar Path.
  • Get slick with supreme, US-produced selvedge from the Motor City’s unstoppable Detroit Denim Co. and dig in to the made in the USA collection of men’s apparel and accessories from Inland Clothing.
  • What do you get when you pair two of Chicago’s prevailing style destinations? Apartment Number 9 and p.45 team up to deliver the best in mens and womens fashion in a pop-up boutique of epic proportions — only at Dose.
  • Satisfy the healthy-eater inside you with raw delights and breakfast bites from Green Spirit Living and Organola Granola then soak up Peeled’s decidedly good for you juices (and champagne sorbet).
  • Amp up your look with ready-to-wear from the fall collection of Dose newcomer Caroline Borucki and score uptown essentials with a downtown edge from Samantha Sleeper.
  • Next, snag the perfect autumn accoutrement — rockstar clutches from Lisa Kingsley, pure silk scarves from the Janice Collection and the precious woven woolens of APORTA.
  • In search of a Halloween costume to rival them all? This Dose will showcase the slickest collection of one-of-a-kind, ready-to-wear costumes for men and women care of first-timer Silver Moon Vintage.
  • And what’s Dose without the love? Since there’s no better place to socialize, send some love via crush@Dose and anonymously invite your heart’s desire to the next Market. We’ll let cupid take over from there.

As always, keep your eyes to the interweb for more info! Keep tabs on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for more Doser details, and look for the full vendor list this week.
