Get Out Your Scotch Guard—Eavesdrop Is Coming! If the hors d’ouevres make a party, Luminaire threw quite the fête last month. The huge design showroom in Chicago’s River North staged the top floor with more affordable items from their inventory, alongside of pop-ups from local artisans, including European bike-lifestyle guru J.C. Lind Bike Co. This was our first stop of several that evening, so the substantial hors d’oeuvres—a.k.a. Prosecco sponges—were fully appreciated. What didn’t appreciate them?
That $5,000 sofa where our fried risotto ball crash-landed after slipping off of a toothpick and ricocheting off our champagne flute. Seriously, it was so embarrassing, with one witness to the party foul saying out loud, “Hope they Scotch Guarded everything before inviting this guy.” As we scurried to pick up the grease ball, we dropped half into our glass, tainting the last sips of the drink.

If you have not been taking advantage of the programming at the Graham Foundation, you need to start now. Sarah Herda, director of the Graham, and staff are turning it out. And for the record, we kept a vise-like grip on our glass of red wine, so no spills.
