Head’s Up: Chicago Welcomes New Era Flagship Downtown

New Era has finally made it’s way to the midwest setting up shop in none other than the Windy City!  The newest flagship location is located at 201 S. State Street (just north of Adams).  This is the very first owned & operated retail location in the midwest and with 2 levels and a total of 4,500 square feet it also happens to be the largest New Era shop in existence.  With almost 9 decades in the business, being known as the official on-field cap of the MLB, and even spotted on runways – you better believe we were excited to welcome New Era to Chi-town and even more excited to be invited to the VIP grand opening this past Thursday night.  A huge thanks to the Chicago Blogger’s Network for making sure we were involved.

From 8PM-11PM, New Era’s newest location opened it’s doors for a private party exclusive to VIP invited guests only allowing them a sneak peak at their newest and largest location.  Guests were able to shop the hottest in headwear, satiate their appetites with light bites including mini hotdogs and chicken wraps, quench their thirst with a fully stocked open bar, and move to the beats of DJ J2K of Flosstradamus & Hollywood Holt fame.

And what is a celebration without cake & gifts?  New Era delivered there, too.  Mini cupcakes in a variety of flavors (including an insanely delicious chocolate peanut butter) with the New Era logo were passed out to guests and before leaving all attendees received New Era Backpacks filled with goodies including t-shirts, belts, mini hats, etc all donning the brand’s logo.

The second floor hosted an even more exclusive VIP party for select guests.  The lucky few also went home that night with a very special limited edition New Era cap embroidered with the Chicago Skyline.  Only 300 of those caps exist and NowYouKnow was lucky enough to go home with a few.

The newest New Era store officially opened it’s doors to the public this past Saturday.  if you haven’t made it over there yet, be sure to swing by when you get a chance to check out some of the hottest caps plus apparel and accessories for men and women.  My personal favorite… these adorable animal hats which have become quite popular and the fact that as an adult I can actually get away wearing – what would otherwise be deemed absurd wear for an adult – makes them all the better!

RAW:natural born artists is an independent arts organization that hand-selects and spotlights independent creatives in visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, photography, models and performing art.

RAW’s mission is to provide up-and-coming artists of all creative realms with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity so that they might be seen, heard and loved. RAW educates, connects and exposes emerging artists in 22 artistic communities nationwide through monthly showcase events.

RAWards 2011:

At the end of every RAW season, we host an annual indie arts award show, and we call it RAWards. All of our artists who have participated throughout the RAW season (February-October 2011) are eligible to compete for the title of best in their craft (Art, Fashion, Accessories, Music, Film, Photography, Performing Art, Hair & Makeup). Each artist is given the opportunity to compete for career-building prizes such as gallery placement, boutique placement, big consultations and RAW’s Golden Ticket.

Because we can’t pick our favorites (RAW loves all of our artists), we leave this in the hands of the nation, your community and our trusty professional panel of judges.

These are the nominees in your community. Help choose the artists who will represent your city in the nationwide finale! Live voting takes place at this event; come and show your support!
