Fight for the Title: Battle of the Barbers

All three barbers at Jesse’s Barbershop are in an epic one month fight to see who is the best barber in Chicago’s Northwest Side.

Jesse, Rhett, and Mike are boxing it out by getting as many clients as possible and cutting their hair between August 15 and September 15. After each hair cut, the client will be able to cast their vote for the BEST barber!

Jesse's Barber Shop Chicago will also be making a donation to a local school. Clients will also cast a vote for the school of their choosing. The school with the most votes will get the donation.

Book your haircut to participate!

LUNA at the Filament Theatre

LUNA at the Filament Theatre

Filament Theatre LUNA Horizontal.jpg

Filament Theatre brings to the stage Ramón Esquivel’s LUNA directed by Filament Resident Artist Alejandro Tey. This story about the daughter of migrant farm workers was developed in collaboration with elementary children in Mattawa, WA, a town predominantly populated by migrant farmers. Tickets are currently available at www.filamenttheatre.org/luna.

Luna tells the hopeful story of Soledad, a young girl who dances with the stars and sings with the moon. Her family follows the crops and with every move comes a new school and the struggle to make new friends. The imaginative Soledad finds solace in her constant companion, Luna — the moon. On her search for human friendship Soledad must challenge the world she knows and discover that “Taking risks is hard to do, but taking risks builds courage too.”

In an artistic statement, playwright Ramón Esquivel wrote, “My stories are about the search for belonging. They are about vulnerability. Most of all, my stories are about conflict between people who love each other. I hope my stories inspire empathy, connection, and wisdom—and that they make audiences laugh along the way.”

Luna will feature Filament Resident Artist Aissa Guerra with Jean Claudio, Gaby FeBland, Mateo Hernandez, Deanalís Resto, and Raquel Torre. Understudies include Elizabeth Nungaray and Isaura Flores.

For more information visit www.filamenttheatre.org/luna

Dates:

Previews: Saturday, Sept 21 @ 2:30; Sunday, Sept 22 @ 1pm; Saturday, Sept 28 @ 11am

Press performances: Saturday, Sept 28 @ 2:30pm; Sunday, Sept 29 @ 1pm

Fearless Cooking Soft Opening!

Fearless Cooking Soft Opening!

October 21, 2015.

"The idea: An environmentally friendly cookware shop, including cooking classes. Taught by folks in the community. Possible Revenue Streams:
1) Cookware Sales. 
     - Green - Local, recycled/recyclable, sustainable.
2) Cooking Classes - various categories
    - Green - Cooking with leftovers; Reducing Food Waste
    - Family - Baby Food; Veggies for Kids; Kid Cooking Classes
    - Events -Book Clubs; Movie Nights; Wedding Showers; Reunions..." 
...

And so three years and nine months ago (or 1,365 days - but who's counting?), began this crazy journey of opening Fearless Cooking. I (Catherine, the owner) was a Sociologist-turned-nonprofit-consultant who woke up one day with a fully formed idea in my head - and absolutely zero knowledge of how to carry it out.

Which makes it nearly unbelievable that we can finally announce that WE HAVE PASSED OUR FINAL INSPECTON AND WILL OPEN OUR DOORS ON MONDAY, JULY 22ND AT 10AM!

This will be a soft opening - please be gentle with us as we work out the quirks. More information coming soon, but in the meantime - we hope to see you there!
