Here's The Jist:

As a Drink Editor I receive a lot of requests for restaurant, bar and nightlife recommendations. So I started a blog to chronicle Chicago's social scene which eventually morphed into New York's drinking and dining scene. After years in Chicago, I'm now a full time resident of NYC, the East Village to be exact. Look forward to sharing the latest and greatest from the wine & spirits world, straight from the Big Apple.

The James continues to recognize unique artistic pursuits in Chicago with the Justin Cooper Artist’s Reception onThursday, July 30 from 5 to 7 pm. This distinguished fete toasts the weeklong Justin Cooper Vay Kay Performance Series at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, taking place immediately following his performance that evening.

 The James currently features a Justin Cooper photograph installation, courtesy of Monique Meloche Gallery, throughout the lobby and will celebrate Justin Cooper as the guest of honor for this exclusive evening of art, featuring complimentary “Cooper-tini” cocktails made with Bacardi Dragon Fruit, spiced apple and lime, topped with a champagne floater and garnished with a fresh apple. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres will also be served from David Burke’s Primehouse Chef Rick Gresh. The James’ extensive wine, beer and cocktail selections will also be available for purchase.

Reservations are not required and all are invited to mix and mingle while enjoying delicious food, drinks and the art of Justin Cooper. 

This party will take place in The James lobby, located at 55 East Ontario.
