Event Recap | Brizo’s Second Annual Ultra Exclusive Designer Event
Friday, October 11th, 2013
Chicagoans are familiar with Michelin-star chefs Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas, so we can only imagine the excitement felt by the lucky few who received invitations to Brizo's Second Annual Ultra Exclusive Designer Event in the form of the chefs' book, "Life, on the Line." Achatz signed the unique RSVP requests with the phrase, "What's next?", which proved to be the theme for the evening for the 21 designers and architects who embarked on the four-stop mystery tour of Chicago hotspots.
After gathering at the Delta/Brizo Dream2O showroom, a limo transported the unknowing guests the Waldorf Astoria for champagne sipping, complete with a private balcony view of Rush Street and Barney’s during a swoon-worthy sunset. The next stop? Primitive, where the party perused artifacts from more than 150 cultures before dining on J and L Catering’s cuisine in the private Buddha Room. From there, the troupe received a private tour of Burberry’s new flagship store on Michigan Avenue before journeying to the final destination, which landed everyone at The Office, below Achatz and Kokonas' The Aviary, for tasty nightcaps and more sweet bites at the private speakeasy. The night's attendees included architects and designers from MILIEU, VDL Interiors, Vincere Ltd., DBI, Inc., Platinum Coast Designs, dwdw, James Thomas, and many more. And as if you weren't already jealous enough, everyone involved received a Brizo gift bag that included a Jason Wu keychain and the chance to pick out a free faucet. Start campaigning for your invite to next year's exclusive party accordingly.
