Isobar* Summer Event

August 23rd, 2014 · No Comments


This is not Oak Street Beach! After our annual meeting this year, we were supposed to head to the beach. The weather was so bad on Thursday and was predicted to be the same on Friday, so Plan B (roof top – with retractable roof at American Junkie) was activated. Of course, that means that Friday was a beautiful, sunny day. It was so humid, though, after so much rain on Thursday, I was glad to be inside.

As always, it was nice to hang out with all my work friends, not in the work setting. I came home early (before 8 p.m.!) because Makai was sick, but it was probably for the best, the way everyone was doing shots of fireball and tequila like it was going out of style! Great night though. Fun day.

*Also note that we are officially Isobar, not Roundarch and not Roundarch Isobar!

Past Roundarch/Roundarch Isobar/Isobar Summer Events:

2013: The Rooftop at Market
2011: Millennium Park (daytime photos, nighttime photos)

2010: Shedd Aquarium (Also celebrating Roundarch’s 10 year anniversary)

I’d heard about this Starbucks evening menu with wine and beer and fancy small plates, but I’d never seen it in real life… til last month. I walked into a Starbucks in River North for a late coffee and there it was. Looked good. And a lot of people who were sitting around the cafe were partaking.
