Last Thursday night was pretty fun! I was invited to attend (Redd’s Wicked Apple) The Most Wicked Party, curated by Afro Punk. It was super dope to see that a couple of my friends were either performing, djing, or had art displayed at the event. I was stoked to see the line up, Holt, Hannibal Buress, and Danny Brown. Check out the flyer below for the full line up, to view pictures of the event, and to read more about it.
The night started off with me being super hungry, hadn’t eaten but once the whole day, and I was running late because I didn’t leave the shop till 8. I had to run back home because Richie and Wes were picking me up, so that left no time for food, :(. I got home like at 8:10 changed and ran out the crib since Richie and Wes were there already, doors were at 8, and we wanted to get there early. We pulled up found parking and walked over to the venue and noticed that the line was around the block, treated. It was now about 8:35 pm. Wes was like all good we’re on the list lets just walk up past the line and finesse, which we did, yea we were those assholes that just cut, all good tho, I was trying to get in and see if there was any food.
Chaos even at the front of the line, we walked in tho :). We were able to get in pretty quick, tho!
As we walked in we were greeted by the gate keeper to the VIP area, lol, she was super cool! The whole event had free cider provided by Redds Wicked Apple, so by the end of the night everyone was turnt. Everyone that attended the event was blessed with the cider, the only difference for the VIP area, was no lines and they had some hor d’oeuvres which I missed, treated :(. Since I missed the food, I decided to grab a drink and just go with it.
Food that I missed :(.

Look who I found, the hor d’oeuvres guy, but at the end of the night tho :(. I was still super hungry tho, so me and Richie decided to hit Dusek’s, the restaurant downstairs from Thalia Hall. Dj Wes had to dip cause he had a gig to go to.
Duseks’s was flame, we tried their stuffed burger (Juicy Lucy), supposedly one of the best in the Chi, def one of the best!

Overall the night was super memorable, saw a great show had good drinks and hung with good homies! Redd’s Wicked Apple Mango flavor was super fire, so be on the look out for that one! Till next time, my bad for all the pics and if I rambled, but like I have stated before, I’m not a professional writer, I write similar to how I talk, so yea, I may have to work on my communication skills, lol.
