May has been busy at BKB Chicago and I got to cover two fun events - "Tacos & Tuneups" and "Memorial Day Mixer"

I'll start off with "Tacos & Tuneups." It was cold / rainy but I was surprised to see the amount of people still working out and getting their rock climbing on. Can't forget to mention Clif Barwas giving out free bars to the community, The Salsa Truck selling their great tacos, and Heritage Bicycles was providing discounted on the spot tuneups. Those chorizo tacos you see up there...yeah, that was mine. Could've had TWO more, easily!

"Memorial Day Mixer" was probably by far my favorite event ever shooting. I only say this because of the amount of involvement the facility / staff took on with the climbing community totally integrating belay buddies to get free tattoo's to apply on yourself and the crate stacking competition. It was amazing how the females of the competition were slaying the boys on crate stacking! I would like to try at it some point and I'm sure it's super mentally and physically challenging. 

I'm looking forward to the events and photo shoots I have lined up. Can't wait to show you guys what I have upcoming. 


Topping off the last LADIES NIGHT @ Brooklyn Boulders of Chicago, Mizuno x PowerBar set up shop and hung out for the evening. LADIES NIGHT happens every Wednesday and purely dedicated to the ladies out there in Chicago at a super discounted rate. On top of that, cool sponsors come in and usually have something to give out for FREE. Cool, right? I pretty much just hung out by the PowerBar table and ate two bars worth off samples. Essentially just made it my dinner. The 'Peanut Butter & Caramel' was so addicting. 

A message to the women out there who are on the floor -- you are all seriously killin' it on the rock walls! Keep it up ladies.
