We are pleased to announce our inaugural event of what is sure to become a Wicker Park favorite, the Wicker Park Handshake! We are all familiar with the Chicago Handshake combination of Malort and Old Style. So, we became curious what a hyper local combo from our hip, cool, artsy, bustling neighborhood would look like. On Saturday, April 18th from 12-6pm, ticket holders will take to the streets to sample your interpretation of a Wicker Park handshake.
