WEST LOOP — Show your sweetheart some love via poetry or even private sketch at this weekend's Randolph Street Market.
Katya's Salon de Erotique, a private nude sketch salon, returns this weekend to the Randolph Street Market, a two-day vintage and antique shopping experience at Beaux Arts Plumber's Hall, 1340 W. Washington St.
A 20-minute private sketch runs $35. For those too shy to bare all, a bathing suit or close-fitting clothing is also appropriate.
To gear up for Valentine's Day, the market will also have custom love letters typed by a panel of poets, Poems While You Wait. Provide your name, the topic and a $5 donation and you'll receive an insta-poem 20 minutes later.
A random follower at Randolph Street Market's Facebook page who joins in the social media conversation will also be entered to win a $500 Super Bowl gift crate from Randolph Street's Fancy Food Market.
The basket includes liquor samples from CH Distillery, treats from Little Goat and City Winery, chocolates from Chocolate Twist, candy apples from What About Them Apples, sweets from Sweet Considerations, and bloody mary mixes from Stu’s. The winner does not need to be onsite to redeem the prize.
The Randolph Street Market is Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at 1340 W. Washington St. General admission tickets are $10, with $5 student tickets available with ID at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.
