Chicago LIVE!

 Last Thursday I was lucky enough to attend a live taping of Chicago LIVE! with my friend Hollis. A live broadcast at the Chicago Theater, hosted by famed reporter Rick Kogan, its a must see show. There was a great line up of guests, everyone from Top Chef and Lollapalooza culinary director Graham Elliot to Chicagos Artists' Coalition executive director Carolina Jayaram. The night was even infused with an amazing performance from the most talented young lady I have ever seen, Kate Diaz, along with a hypnotizing performance by the The Andreas Kapsalis & Goran Ivanovic Guitar Duo

Graham Elliot (on right) stunned the audience after revealing that he used 75,000 lobsters to create the lobster corn dog creations for Lollapalooza!!!

Me and Hollis at Chicago LIVE! She looked so pretty in her top from Comfort Me Boutique, which she paired with a great pair of blue pants. If you are in the Chicago area, PLEASE check out this store! 

Carolina had alot to say about funding and helping artists find projects and work in the Chicago area.

14-year-old Kate Diaz gave me goose bumps with her soulful voice and guitar performance.
