If Baz Luhrmann’s production of The Great Gastby has left you yearning for the Gilded Age, look no further than Yelp’s “Passport to Highland Park” event, beginning this Wednesday with a “Midnight in Paris”-themed kickoff party at the Highland Park Community House. The event will boast food provided by Abigail’s American Bistro, ArrivaDolce, the Cook Catering, Michael’s Events, and Tamales, as well as beverages from Dry Soda and Samuel Adams/Kloss Distributing. Mireille Hamon, former head make-up artist for Harpo Studio and owner of Mireille’s Studio, will be onsite sharing her fabulous French accent, style and touch-ups, and the Music Institute of Chicago will provide jazz stylings for you to swing to.
This party is a passport to another era, and starts 10-day event series celebrating Highland Park. Locals are invited to join the Yelp Highland Park community for special offers and free events from May 15-25, including a Saturday movie night at The Art Center, a Girl’s Night at BloOuts, and family fun at the Beanstalk—just to name a few!
