More like Summer Awakening...

When we first fell in love with Kaskade, it was at Spring Awakening. When we first fell in love with Armin Van Buuren, it was at Spring Awakening. And when we first fell in love with Zedd, it was at Spring Awakening. For those of you who have attended any of our runway fashion shows, you know that there will also be one hot and heavy EDM song somewhere in the mix, and we can't wait to fall in love some more at this year's fest!

Spring Awakening is set for June 9th - 11th at Addams-Medill Park. 3-day VIP and GA tickets are still available, as well as single day tickets to the event. Make sure to snag your tickets now before it's too late and the FOMO kicks in. Did someone say after parties? Make sure to follow along on Facebook and Twitter for all of the most up to date information leading up to this year's fest.

Are you looking forward to the festival as much as we are? Check our last year's recap video to get your fix and let the countdown begin!

Social Kitchen Tour with Wild Garden

YOU GUYS... Wild Garden® Foods is hitting the road and sharing its love of Mediterranean food by giving back to the community with free meals. If you're not familiar, you should really check it out. This has been my new go to rice & cous-cous side since I was introduced to it this past Summer and I love that they are giving back to those in need throughout the city of Chicago. It’s all part of an epic four-day food truck tour, May 15-18, including stops at popular destinations and places in need. Facebook “likes” will power the Social Kitchen Tour - for every new “like” on the company’s page, a free lunch or dinner will be served. Four local celebrities will be onboard to hand out the free meals, as well as exciting giveaways to lucky patrons dining at the truck.

Members of the Wild Garden® team, along with local celebrities, will serve Chicagoans during two shifts. During the lunch shift, the truck will be parked in busy lunch areas, while the evening shift will focus on a soup kitchen or shelter. Wild Garden® hopes to serve over 5,000 free hot, Mediterranean meals made with the company’s foods, snacks and sweets. The truck’s schedule will be announced each morning on the company’s Facebook page and the first 50 people in line will get a tote bag full of Wild Garden® goodies. Patrons will also have a chance to win free Wild Garden® food for a year!
