Dose Part Deux

How did we love the July 10 Dose? Let us count the ways.

Floyd from The Gentleman’s Boombox kindly supplied speakers so we could blast Haute Closet in Your Head mixes, courtesy of April (who is as good with music as she is closets). Shopping is more fun when there’s shimmying involved.

The crowds arrived early for a taste of Mr. Grant Achatz’s supremely delicious cocktail (thank you, Grant and Chandon!).

To sober up, they sipped on Crop to Cup’s addictive horchata-espresso and Rare Tea Cellar’s Extreme Bubble Tea.

Thirsty for more, they shopped for shades at Contacts and Specs…which led them to Gillion Cararra’s organic accessories made from wood and bone (she also happens to wear the coolest specs around)…and from there, to Ianneci, whose neon jewelry was only upstaged by the designers’ amazing outfits.

When hunger pangs intensified, they snacked on herb-topped focaccia and spring pea salad from Great Lake, X-marx’s Chinese street fare (the steamed shiitake and lotus bun had us at hello), and fresh berries from Seedling. They shopped Bittercube bitters and Hoosier Mama pie shakes until there were none.

If the third time’s a charm, we’d better brace ourselves for August 14.
