It’s been a busy spring here at the shop, and we’re finally getting caught up with work…time to celebrate! We request the pleasure of your company at our 2nd Annual Open House event this Saturday.
In addition to its commercial function, the Labrabbit space also serves as a creative platform, as our window space is transformed in the latest in a series of forward-thinking installations. This time around we present “Hacked Memories,” an interactive media experience by Maria Tzeka. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but the image above might give you a clue.
And what’s a party without food? For this event we move the snacking experience from the shop to the street, as we welcome the Tamalli Space Charros and their food truck/spaceship. As explained by their website, “TAMALLI SPACE CHARROS COLLECTIVE (TSCC) is a mobile tamaleria project inspired by Mexico’s ‘stridentist movement’, and Mexican wrestling sci-fi films. TSCC brings multimedia art and Mexican cuisine into an arena where boundaries will be crossed to explore and reinvent the Chicago food scene and through a social network.” Be sure to check out their website at http://
Finally, enjoy 30% off our entire stock of ophthalmic frames and sunglasses. See you Saturday!
(P.S. There will be a keg of Daisy Cutter on hand.)
Also, be sure to vote for us in the Chicago Reader’s “Best of 2012″ poll! Last year we were voted #1 in the city, let’s see if we can do it again. We work hard to bring the best vintage and contemporary eyeglasses to Wicker Park, but the competition is fierce! Thanks for your continued support, and especially for supporting a local business.
