September will be Bustling!

We will be so busy falling into autumn this September on Water Street! We kick things off with the annual Long Table Dinner to benefit West Suburban Community Pantry on  Sunday September 10.  Guests will enjoy six courses and six wines chosen by the chefs of all our award-winning restaurants, at one long table under the stars right in the middle of Water Street!  Jazz music, value-packed raffles and the chance to eat well while helping our neighbors eat well during this challenging season.  Tickets are available at

Dining for Charity continues as SixtyFour – Wine Bar & Kitchen kicks off Dining for a Cause, supporting a number of area charities on Tuesday evenings with 50% of the dinner proceeds. For more information and reservations visit Stop in for live music on Wednesday evenings too!

Don’t forget to visit your favorite Water Street eateries to enjoy the changing seasonal food and cocktail menus they have created. From sushi to tacos, hi-balls to kabobs, there’s always something new on the menu!

And speaking of changes, it’s time to stock up on fall fashion for guys and gals or fulfill your Yeti yearnings for the next tailgate at Trails & Tides.  Ready for a refresh?  Facials, massages, pedicures, cuts and color await you at Solaia Luxury Salon and Spa.  And as the holidays approach, (yikes!) booking your accommodations at Hotel Indigo and your events at Elements at Water Street is a must!

By midmonth we will welcome Sea Love Candle Bar & Boutique.  This unique candle bar offers the perfect opportunity for bridal showers, birthday parties, corporate teams, family outings or girl’s nights out to enjoy this unique creative process. The candle-making experience can be done in 45 minutes to an hour and guests can sit at our candle bar and order beer, wine, or seltzer while they custom blend their scents. Guests can choose from over 100 fragrances and a team member will guide them in the candle-making process. In addition to the Candle Bar, Sea Love includes a ready to go boutique including thoughtfully sourced decor items, home goods and gifts.

Our friends at We Grow Dreams return on Saturday, September 30 with everything you need to spruce up your garden and front door with seasonal plants, pots, hanging baskets and more, all to benefit employment and job training for young people with disabilities. Visit their  beautiful booth on the Foyo Plaza from 10 am-3 pm.
