Ohhh man. We already loved Headquarters Beercade as customers, so it was no surprise that they were equally awesome in our partnership while we hosted our pop-up shop at their Lakeview location on May 17th. Shoutout to Lera for actually letting us set up or rag tag shop in your lovely establishment! When Jeff and I were figuring out ways to share our Snort Invaders and Snort Tron litters with fellow retro video game fans, we agreed having a pop-up shop at Headquarters would be THE dream. Well, dear Monsters, HQ makes dreams come true! It was a super Snortastic event, so we sincerely appreciate all of the support of our friends and new fans for checking us out.
The big important factor for this event was raising money to support a rescue very near and very dear to our hearts: The Chicago French Bulldog Rescue. The CFBR brought our Ariel into our lives, and we wanted to help bring other Frenchies in need into the lives of future Frenchie moms and dads – all while having fun, of course!
All of our pop-up shops are near and dear to our Snorty hearts, but this was especially exciting for us since it was our first event outside of a doggie-centric location.
Huge shoutout goes to Kasey Blaustein of Kasey Jones, Ink. for providing her creative talents in the form of hand-drawn and lettered chalkboards! She’s lent her talents to some big names out there, so we’re honored to have her artwork be a permanent part of our pop-up shop. Check out her work here and give her some love!
Another shoutout goes to the perfectly personable and fun-to-hang-with Michelle Cox of Michelle Cox Photography for capturing our biggest event yet!
