A Party on The Plaza!


Chosen Few Season is upon us and it kicked off with the lunch time dance party at Daley Plaza! Once a month during summer, the Chosen Few DJs come downtown to the heart of the city for an epic dance party!  Tourists, househeads  in business attire and some in plain clothes gather underneath the Picasso to enjoy one hour of non-stop house music.  The first dance party is also the kickoff to what I call “Chosen Few Season” in the city.  It signals the official countdown to my favorite time of year, The Chosen Few Picnic & Festival! Chosen Few DJs, Alan King, Andre Hatchett, Terry Hunter and Mike Dunn thrilled the crowded plaza with house classics that had folks working up a sweat in their office attire!

The Hot Lunch Mix  Dance Party gives us a chance to let our hair down, forget whatever is happening at the office and dance our cares away for an hour.  You may go back to work tired physically but I promise your spirit is refreshed. It’s a great break from the workday! The Chosen Few DJs will be at Daley Plaza once a month until October but we get a bonus party this month, June 27th right before the Picnic!
