It’s beginning to look a lot like the Holidays, and that means one thing: it’s time to shop! On December 4, 2014, kick-off the Holiday shopping season with caroling, raffles, tasty bites, Santa Claus, and your favorite Chicago bloggers, including Chritiques, at the Lincoln Park Merchants Association Holiday Shop-Hop! From 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., over 30 bloggers will be set up at over 20 of your favorite Lincoln Park stores and restaurants sampling tasty bites and helping you pick out those perfect gifts.
In addition to visiting all of the fabulous stores along Armitage, Halsted, and Webster streets, be sure to stop in to Lululemon Athletica at 2104 North Halsted Street, for some sweet treats, courtesy of Stella Barra Pizzeria, and to meet me! Stella Barra will be serving up an assortment of its house-made desserts, including cookies, blondies, brownies, and rice krispy treats. You can also enter for a chance to win one of two $50 gift cards to Stella Barra!
Each of the participating stores will be offering specials that evening, so be sure to stop into each one. The attending bloggers will help you come up with party looks, the best stocking stuffers, or the perfect gifts for everyone on your shopping list.
Below is a list of participating stores, as well as the bloggers in attendance at each one. It will be a fun night of shopping, eating, and Holiday merriment, and we hope to see you there!
