Dax1Dave & Buster’s in the Hawthorn Mall is categorized as a “sports bar” but as far as the eye could see, at least my eye, it was all about video games, humongous ones that Dax3popped and shrieked. On the periphery, surprisingly enough, there were sound proofed meeting rooms.  This is where the upper echelons of an international pharmaceutical company held their all-day conference to discuss marketing  and other business nuances I don’t understand.  I was called in to draw four panel members, one of whom was retiring to his home town in Japan and was to receive my drawing as a going-away gift.  I walked in at the designated time, sat down inconspicuously and drew the four heads in a few minutes.  Then I disappeared into the adjacent room, drew in the bodies and slid it into the frame that my host had provided, complete with the mat that the team members had already signed.  The $20 frame was sturdy and elegant.  What a great gift idea for the man who has everything!  Thank you, Dax.—————————–

SocialTableA
You know how when you throw a party at your house everybody congregates in the kitchen?Exactly. Why not throw a party that’s held IN the kitchen. Take it one step further: rent someone else’s kitchen and engage a cooking teacher. That roughly describes The Social Table at Armitage & Halsted in Chicago.
To celebrate her husband’s 60th birthday, Lilia invited twenty six friends, mostly couples, to The Social Table, where they would participate in the cooking of their dinner under the expert guidance of a chef, this one named Ian. They worked on a stainless steel table (the chopping and slicing had already been done by the staff) and when everything was cooked, they cleared the table and, well, feasted. Feasted. What else could you call such eating! I was set up at another table, where people sat for me very briefly, maybe 3 minutes each, so that I could draw their faces. Later, while the cooking heated up, I added the bodies and finished the drawings. Then I presented them in clear plastic sleeves while the main course was still in progress and the wine glasses were being refilled. All to much applause and laughter. Then, guess what, I was invited to enjoy their perfect halibut-in-roasted-red-pepper-sauce. Thank you, Lilia!
