Attire – Cocktail party but weather appropriate. Meaning, if you want to wear your cute party dress or cool new shirt – fantastic. But if it’s rainy cold and you can’t imagine changing out of flannel-lined jeans and a wooly sweater, that’s fine with us! Just no snuggies, please. Ditch boots at the door – the drinks and conversation will warm you right up!


Public Transit – Easy! Event is right across the street from southeast doors of Merchandise Mart. CTA brown line stops on 2nd level of the Mart. (Tip – there is no down escalator in the Mart; use stairs next to ATMs outside CTA turnstiles.) Or, the #156 LaSalle bus stops one block east at 320 LaSalle. Follow the narrow sidewalk on the north side of the building west toward Wells, then turn left.


Printed tickets – Don’t print out tickets; it wastes paper. Provide your name, and guest name(s), with your ticket purchase and we’ll have a complete list at the door.


Handicap accessible – Yes, DIRTT is accessible.


This is a 21+ event.
