A new magazine has recently debuted, The Collective Quarterly, one we’ve recently had the pleasure of working with. The magazine pulls artists and artisans together, puts them on the road and then documents their experiences, and the impact these experiences have on their creative insights and processes. The first issue, Ø, is available at their shop now.
The Collective crew recently paid Longman & Eagle a visit, and spent the afternoon shooting promotional photographs in our rooms upstairs. We greatly enjoyed working with them, and are anxiously awaiting our own copies of this first issue to arrive!

We have recently begun carrying the outstanding Lucky Peach periodical, a quarterly journal of food and writing from the principles behind the Momofuku group.
Each issue focuses on a single theme, and then explores that theme through essays, art, photography and recipes. We have just received copies of their current issue, their second annual ‘Cooks and Chefs’ issue, for inn guests to enjoy.

Please join us on Sunday, January 12th at the Off Site Bar, where we’ll be partnering with Virtue Cider to transform our Sunday Donut Shop into a winter clothing drive for the Chicago Public School system.
We’ll be featuring a vertical of Virtue Cider, focusing on their ‘The Mitten’ release. The flight will include tasting portions of their 2011, 2011 Michigan Mitten, 2011 Reserved and 2012 releases, and we’ll be pairing these with donuts made specifically for the event.
So come on out, bring a winter clothing item or three (coats, hats, mittens, etc) , and enjoy some cider and donuts in the coziness of the OSB, all the while supporting a great cause!
The event runs from 9am to 4pm.

The New York Times recently published an article on the cocktail scene in Chicago, one titled A Chicago Cocktail Crawl. In it, travel writer Steve Reddicliffe surveys cocktail joints in our neighborhood – Billy Sunday, Scofflaw, Weegee’s and, yes, Longman & Eagle – and beyond.
Interestingly, The Chicagoist countered with a piece suggesting that the Times missed the mark, suggesting that the piece focused too much on Logan Square (suggesting that the article instead be called A Logan Square Cocktail Crawl), and missed some of the city’s broader offerings.
Either way we are excited they stopped in for a drink!

Longman & Eagle recently played host to a photo shoot with the fine folks over at Sleepy Jones. Created by Andy Spade (Jake Space, Partners & Spade), Sleepy Jones designs tasteful, upscale loungewear, and the afternoon session focused on the brand’s most recent collection of manufactured goods.
The shoot featured our friends Jessica Herman and Max Wastler, the latter of which brought by some Basil Hayden’s. And what better way, really, to enhance an afternoon? Whiskey, of course!

2 cubes of raw sugar
1 lemon wedge

The Chicagoist site recently ran a nice year-end piece, The 20 Best Things We Ate And Drank in 2013, one that features our Chicken and Waffles dish. Having finally tried the dish this year, the writer – Jim Kopeny – found himself at Longman “semi-regularly” throughout the rest of the year, ordering the dish again and again.
Many thanks for including us!
