Sweaty Summer Swelter Thanks

July 25, 2017

Our Horse Thief customers truly represent the best of Chicago’s South Side. On Saturday, they came out in droves to our annual parking lot party Summer Swelter. A great, big sweaty Summer Swelter thanks to all who made our celebration so memorable.

You came to support local craft breweries–not just us, but also our friends at Blue Island Beer Company and Baderbrau. You came to support local artisans, including Cera & Lore and Our Secret Garden, among others. You came for Neil’s gourmet sausages. You came for fantastic music and dance performances. Thanks, The Pack Drumline and Dance Crew! And didn’t the Leadfoot Band rock the block?

What we’re most proud of, Horse Thief fans, is your support for local causes. This year, Summer Swelter benefited the Conner T. Lowry Memorial Fund and kicked off with a tribute to Conner and other fallen military heroes. We captured some of the service on video. Now grab a tissue, and enjoy.
