The weather on June 7th was perfect for traveling around Chicago, visiting five memorable locations, each one different and inspirational for the thirty inquisitive participants.  Our first stop was Oromo Café in Lincoln Square, specializing in house-made nut milks blended with pop culture “superfoods,” such as turmeric and ashwagandha.  From there we visited Merz Apothecary, a drugstore-like atmosphere where the shelves were loaded with brands from all over the world.   We then discovered Waxman candle, a unique candle shop where we each had the chance to select a fragrance and produce our own votive candles.  We worked up an appetite, and luckily landed at Mahalo in the Wicker Park neighborhood, where they served up delicious Hawaiian drinks and cuisine.  Thinking we had no more room for food, our next visit was Legend Tasty House in Chinatown.  We watched as they artfully made rolled ice cream and created the most delicious concoctions that we all managed to gobble down.  Our final stop was Forbidden Root, the first botanical brewery in Chicago.  Here we shared a flight of interesting brews and cheered to a wonderful, memorable day together.  

Thanks again to Kelli Heinz, Director of Marketing & Industry Affairs at Bell Flavors & Fragrances and to our great sponsors:  Bell Flavors & Fragrances, Belle Air Creations and Innova Flavors.  Bravo!!!
