Day Time Dance Chicago Party with ABSOLUT VODKA
This Friday Flavorpill & ABSOLUT bring you a creative entrepreneur FREE summer dance party for those of us who can “do what we WANT”. You should definitely check it out because it’s the perfect way to start off your weekend a little early. We will be there with cameras in hand enjoying some cocktails & good music by Chicago’s own DJ COLETTE!
It’s a daytime dance party from 1pm-2pm, crafted with the creative class in mind- i.e. those who can leave their desks and studios and dance it out in the middle of the day as though it were the middle of the night.
Inspired by the popular trend of daytime dance parties in Sweden, ABSOLUT took the cue from their homeland and created the free hour-long party where attendees can enjoy a cocktail, delicious bagged lunch and sounds from local DJ’s hand-picked by musical icon Questlove. Born in New York last summer, the parties are being rolled out nationally for the first time, gracing the cities of Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Boston in addition to the NY turf.
The upcoming Chicago event is on Friday, 7/26 at Castle (632 N. Dearborn) w/ DJ Colette
