We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Tonight is the launch of the Taste & Trend series featuring local designers from new shopping site LeftofTrend—including Nora del Busto and Kristin Hassan—who’ll offer their work at a 30 percent discount. It’s from 5 to 7 tonight at WAVE, inside the W Lakeshore at 644 N. Lake Shore Drive. Tickets are $20 online, $25 at the bar, which include two drinks and food.
