Last-Minute Plans: GăGé Marketplace At bellyQ

By Melissa Wiley in Food on Oct 27, 2014 4:30PM

Once a month, Bill Kim’s BellyQ and urbanbelly become more than two of the best places for Korean food in the city. They convert to an artisanal bonanza of jewelry, clothing, art and everything handmade. And tonight’s the night, so consider your Monday night plans made. From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., nosh on dumplings and Thai fried chicken while browsing wares of local artists and craftsmen at GăGé marketplace.

October’s Seoul-style bazaar features local crafter Mikey Anderson and his googly-eyed yarn toys as well as the whimsical illustrations of Ariana Koultourides. Karaoke begins at nine, and those working in the food industry receive 40 percent off the entire menu. DJ Selly the Kid will set the soundtrack, and you can walk and shop with cocktails in hand.

BellyQ and urbanbelly are located at 1400 W. Randolph St.
