Soho House, the members only club that recently opened in the West Loop was the scene of the fab dinner party. Though I arrived a smidge late, I didn’t miss the fun.
The guest list was a mix of friends of Azeeza and Candace. One table had Alderman Bob Fioretti and fiance Nicki Pecori mingling with Jessica Moazami and Dr. Brevia; another table had Matt Roan and Shannon O’Brien with Emma Arnold and Scott Drasler chatting up Brett Jeffries, Chanel Coney and Rochelle Trotter; Lisa Skorepa, Pamela Miranda with Dr. Geoff and Monica Dixon; Jena Gambaccini chatting up Jessie Kalin and Mr & Mrs. team members Rodrigo Calvo and Ann Marie Noell.
James and Tamara Lohan are the founders of the British-based boutique travel service Mr & Mrs Smith, which started with just the two of them in London. They have since grown the business and team and The “Whisked Away by Wanderlust” dinner event was held to welcome the team to Chicago and inspire them to explore all that the Windy City has to offer.
The seated dinner began with appetizers such as burrata, baked meatballs, tuna tartare with avocado. Entree was a wild mushroom and black truffle Risotto, beef tenderloin with chimichurri and a salmon dish.
