Da Blaq Affair- Holiday Edition

December 5, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Mark your shopping calendar: Sunday, December 5 for DaBlaq Affair, a Pop-Up Shop Event
_______
DaBlaq Affair’s shopping pop-up featuring Black-owned small business will be EPIC and LIT, say organizers Ebony Love and Blaq Carri B.

The event is hosted by Red Gal Events, an organization that was founded by Love, co-owner of Da Jerk Pit–Evanston based restaurant–and Blaq Carrie B, an indie book author, is their second event and follows one they hosted in August with 32 vendors that was a huge success. Red Gal Events are curated events for the black culture.

“When we choose to support Black-owned businesses, we’re supporting Black pride, unity, and self-determination,” says Love.

“Buying Black is one of the simplest ways to continue the circulation and extend the lifespan of the dollar back into the community.”

There will be a cash bar, complimentary photo booth, and Evanstonian DJ MOB will provide the vibes.
