* * * 
Saturday February 1st here in Chicago is IndieWed 2014. IndieWed is not just focusing on promoting and supporting small, independent (indie) businesses, but also couples with an independent spirit. For some that may mean a full-blown unconventional fete while others may simply want to incorporate handmade items from local artisans. And who says the brides are the only ones who care about the big day ? Our very own Chuck TheBarber will be manning the Mobile Joe’s pop-up barbershop offering up our traditional haircuts as well as hot lather straight razor shaves the day of the event. More info on IndieWed can be found @ http://indiewed.com/
