The West Loop has been good to us. Ox&Pen headquarters have occupied a loft at Washington & Morgan for about a year and a half now, and we’ve loved every minute of it. What do we love most? Easy: all of the food that is on our front door step, next door, and in our backyard. There really isn’t enough time to explore all of them.
That’s where Divine Dine & Wine comes in. On February 28, the West Loop’s annual “celebration of culinary excellence” will feature over 50 different dishes and pairings from some of the city’s most drool-worthy restaurants. Among the eateries participating: Haymarket Pub & Brewery, Saigon Sisters, Vera, Sepia, Glazed & Infused, Porkchop, Three Aces, Carnivale, Lillies Q, Skinnie Piggy and Pastoral. YUM.
We (the businesses, the residents, the visitors) owe a tip of the hat to the West Central Association, the driving force behind Divine Dine & Wine and countless other events Chicagoans enjoy throughout the year.
The WCA has made it top priority to work with businesses in an effort to better expose local brands to new, interested and engaged audiences. This is an organization that fully understands the value of building up the neighborhood for the benefit of both residents and commercial endeavors. They’ve created quite a loyal network of local merchants and customers, and Ox&Pen is excited to partner with the WCA to increase the interest in shopping and dining and small businesses.
