Owen + Alchemy served signature juices and worked with Rhine Hall Distillery for autumn-inspired cocktails. Artist Caroline Liu installed a juicy plant-inspired art show, and The Foxglove Studio created magical, colorful, dreamy floral design. Folks bought books thanks to Chicago’s Barbara’s Bookstore, and they tasted some recipe samples from the book, too.
If YU were there with us, thank you so much for being a part of one of the most special evenings of my life. If YU were only there in spirit, take a peek at this photo/video recap.
Thank YU Jason McKean for capturing these moments for us:

These are some dear pals who drove 12 hours straight from the DC-area to party with us. Don’t let them fool you, this was simply an end-of-the-party disco nap.
