Isobar Holiday Party at the Pump Room

January 10th, 2015 · No Comments


On Friday, Isobar has its annual holiday party at the Pump Room. I’d never been there and thought the lighting was super cool. Obviously. That is all I took photos of!!

As per usual with the Isobar holiday parties: great food, endless open bar, lots of fun. Maybe I am getting old, but nothing crazy happened. Dallas went home to relieve the babysitter at 10 p.m. and I stayed out til 1 a.m. or so. The bar was still open!!

A few months ago everyone was making a fuss about Donald Trump putting his name on his tower (above). Analogue, a bar/restaurant in Logan Square, decided to jump on it and put his name on their storefront, which up til that point had remained nameless (below).

Game of Phones

July 17th, 2014 · No Comments


A while back…. ok, a LONG while back, just before we went to Hawaii (!!!!)…. I went and saw Game of Phones. Alden was on the writing team, so I went to check it out at the Second City theater with Jess and Chris and Sara. It was really good! Funny. And not like one long story, but more like quick bits on pop culture, and especially on our relationship with technology. Afterwards we had some drinks with the cast and crew and I liked hearing the kind of behind-the-scenes stuff from Alden. How they wrote, how they decided what to write, what made it into the show, how they casted, etc. So interesting.
