Last Saturday, July 21, Warby Parker, took a trip to Chicago to host a fun and festive Bocce Social. The event took place in the outdoor space next to Big Star and brought in a crowd of around 500 throughout the afternoon, allowing fans to get to know the NYC-based brand personally.
Guests were entertained with live performances by DJ Dan Maloney and The Record Low as they swigged brews brought to them in wheelbarrows and noshed on upscale picnic fare. Guests spent the afternoon playing games on the lawn area, dancing to the music, and relaxing in Adirondack chairs. Throughout the evening, servers were also spotted with trays of eyewear for guests to try on and experience.
