This past Sunday, October 12th, rather than staying home and drinking Sambuca all day, we joined forces with Jimmy Whispers to host the first ever HOOP DREAMS BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT. The tournament (and music fest) was located at 1834 W Chicago Ave and it was created to raise funds for CeaseFire, the Illinois branch of the Cure Violence Organization, which operates in 6 cities throughout the state – Chicago, Maywood, Rockford, East St. Louis, Springfield, and North Chicago/Waukegan.
This past Saturday we hosted our First Annual Music Frozen Dancing. The winter block party went far beyond what we expected it might do, especially considering how much this winter has kicked our asses. Our head honcho, Bruce, has been wanting to host a winter festival/party-of-sorts for well over a decade, and sure enough, it finally came to fruition during the third worst winter Chicago has ever experienced.
