It was to have been the second annual Shop Chicago event at the MCA's Hubbard Street warehouse. The idea was to have designers and local boutiques sell their wares, participate in a fashion show, and attempt to raise money for Gen Art Chicago's fashion program. Unfortunately, the caterer failed to obtain a liquor license, and so the Chicago police closed the event before it started. Boy, I sure hope that future organizers remember to get their liquor licenses for any public parties that might be happening (around, oh, say, April 16).
