One of the perks of working at Zapwater is we always have fun events for clients that we get to go to – and the past couple of weeks have been especially full of them! Last week we headed over to the loop location of HALO [FOR MEN] to celebrate their one year anniversary. The place was packed with guests enjoying Pearl Vodka and El Mayor Tequila. There was even a surprise delivery from Berry Chill which topped the night off!

This week started with Meteo-RA-logy Madness at Ra Sushi on Wednesday night. Ra invited four of the city’s meteorologists Amy Freeze, Mary Kay Kleist, Ginger Zee and Duffy Atkins to create their own signature sushi rolls and partner with a non-profit organization to raise money for a cause of their choice. Each of the meteorologists’ sushi rolls were delicious but in the end Duffy Atkins’ ‘Fujita-Toro’ roll won, raising money for In Concert Chicago, an organization that arranges for Chicago-area student and professional musicians to perform for senior citizens at nursing homes, retirement communities and assisted living centers. Not only was this event for a good cause, but all of the sushi rolls were delicious!

Last night, the Zapwater team headed to Kenmore Live Studio to join aja’s Executive Chef, Joshua Linton from the dana hotel & spa, and Chicago Red Stars Player and GreenLaces Founder, Natalie Spilger, for an evening of live cooking demonstrations and sustainable cooking tips to benefit Green Laces. GreenLaces is an organization dedicated to giving back to the planet through funding initiatives. I can’t think of a better way to start the weekend – charity and delicious food from Chef Linton!
