President's Day is a pretty drab holiday, right? No heart themed realia; no Christmas trees; no turkeys or cornucopias, and no shamrocks. It's just meh. Well, the Hotel Lincoln doesn't think that at all, and if you remember, is planning to highlight the gems of the Lincoln Park nabe in honor of one of our founding presidents, whose namesake street is mindblowingly situated at the intersection of the Hotel Lincoln. Last week, we pointed out that this weekend, on Feb. 16, they will host the First Annual President's Day Pop Up Market on the second floor of the hotel featuring Chicago based businesses.
Today, we bring you shoppable merchandise from some of the retailers including Arch Apothecary, Bonobos Guide Shop, Piper Boutique, 1154 Lill and Barker & Meowsky, to name a few. The market is free to attend and the proceeds go directly to individual businesses and there's going to be a guy in an Abe Lincoln suit--which means, it'll be a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
