Longman & Eagle is hosting its fourth installment of ‘What’s Happening!!’, an outdoor block and dance party featuring the drinks, food and music this Sunday, August 31st, and the event runs from 1pm to 10pm.
As a ‘thank you’ to a neighboring community that has been so very supportive, the L&E has been hosting a free, outdoor block party on Schubert, at Kedzie, adjacent to the building for the last four years. Open to all, the event features dancing, drinks, food and music in an outdoor street setting.
Executive chef Jared Wentworth has created a street food menu for the event that includes Elote, Lamb Kebabs, Meatballs, Shrimp Ceviche and a Tete Sandwich. Bar manager Phil Olsen has also worked on an excellent selection of drink options including a special OSB punch.
Grren Bean Dayschool staffers will be on hand on the early side for some kid friendly activities. Logan Square Preservation members will be available to discuss their efforts in beautifying Logan Square. Busy Beaver Button Company will be on site handing out goodies and the Bus Shop will be parked at the end of the block offering up vintage wares for sale. And as always, The Windy City Soul Club will be holding it down on the turntables for the dance party vibes!!
Land and Sea Dept. commissioned artist Chad Kouri to create the poster for the event. Kouri is a frequent visitor to L&E, and the Chicago-based multi-disciplinarian is a co-founder of the art and design incubator Post Family.
