Sip & Shop 2023; Join us in shopping local this September

By Mary Jo Viero  


Thursday, September 14, join us in celebrating the businesses of Beverly/Morgan Park in the best way possible — with retail therapy, drinks and food. The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at the BAPA office at 1744 W. 99th St. We can’t wait for everyone to come into our space and get to know BAPA better! BAPA will have all of our “Love Where You Live” merchandise available including shirts, mugs and flags. After check-in, explore any and all of the participating businesses, which are listed below.  

This year more than 20 retailers from 103rd Street and 99th Street business districts are participating. We’re thrilled to welcome new Sip & Shop participants, Cardinalis Cardinalis, Bricktop Barbershop, Oleander and Artesian, Homegirls’s Hummus and Cetta is Betta.  

And after months of hard work, we are so happy to announce that James Sanders, owner of Sanders BBQ and Supply (formerly Pizzeria Depot) will be opening his new restaurant and event space for Sip & Shop. Attendees can see his newly transformed space and try tastings.  

Once you shop to your hearts’ content, join us for an after-party at Calabria Imports, 1905 W. 103rd St., from 8:30 to 10 p.m.  

Tickets for Sip & Shop are $20 in advance ($25 day of) and can be purchased on our website at
