The host invited forty friends to celebrate his birthday—probably his 40th ( just my guess)—at the Fulton Market Kitchen on Sangamon and Randolph in IMG_4087Chicago.

I wore black, of course, and roamed inconspicuously, drawing people as they were standing around talking and then later as they were seated for dinner.
