Six Corners Association launched Social after Six, a monthly pop-up event series, in 2016 as a placemaking effort under Main Street America's mantra of "light, quick, easy." Due to its overwhelming success and how much fun we keep having, we continue this series in direct collaboration with our businesses!
To date, we've played board games in a theater, thrown axes, practiced yoga on a city street and in an empty ball room, learned to make Chicago-style hot dogs, tasted wine, made soap, drank cider, tried glow-in-the-dark zumba, and now danced Bachata!
On June 28th, SCA partnered with Tatas Tacos for a Social after Six: Bachata + Horchata event. Cari Bermudez, an instructor with Fly Girl Dance & Fitness, led attendees in a bachata dance lesson on the southern sidewalk of Irving Park Rd. then everyone was invited to stay and keep dancing while enjoying delicious, fresh homemade horchata from Tatas.
Thank you to all who attended for supporting these two local, independently-owned (by neighborhood residents) businesses and SCA! Also thanks to everyone who stopped to dance, take pictures, and videotape the event. Remember to tag us on instagram @sixcornerschicago or on facebook!
