New from She's Folks! She's Cookin': a web series about troubling potluck food. The first Tuesday of every month, we'll be sharing alarming concoctions from old church cookbooks, community newsletters, frayed family recipe cards, hot dish horror stories, and the occasional back panel of a Velveeta package. They still make that? Yes, they do. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be glad you're not eating it.
Do you have a disturbing vintage or family recipe you'd like to share? Please comment or send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows? We just might whip 'er up. In the meantime, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel. We'll be sharing exclusive follow ups to these recipes on YouTube alone.
Everybody has to live somewhere. A creative and communal response to the global refugee crisis, Fixed Abode is an evening of stories, songs, comedy, art and poetry exploring the themes of displacement, long journeys, new beginnings, and the universal longing for a place to call home.

Hosted by She's Folks own, Tyler Thompson, Fixed Abode III features the usual suspects along with some fresh faces: Praytell, The Lovettes, She's Folks, Wild Earp, Hillary Marren, Jacob Mau, Daniel Fager, Quentin Rynbrandt, a silent art auction, raffle for premium Hamilton tickets, and more! Tickets $30, open bar. Doors open at 7:30pm, show at 8:00pm. There will be pie.
We are very excited to announce we will be opening for celebrated duo, Praytell!
Praytell, the collaboration between Jon & Valerie Guerra, has been making our holiday hearts swoon for years with their original Christmas songs & refreshing take on cherished holiday classics. To Praytell, the holiday season is not complete without a Christmas concert in the heart of Chicago!
Fresh off a residency with Amy Grant & Vince Gill for 17 Christmas shows at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, Praytell is bringing the holiday magic home. Join Praytell (+ special guest She's Folks) for an evening of music, merriment, & hot cocoa at Christmas in Chicago with Praytell.
