Halloween is a time to embrace magic, mystery, and all things spooky.
This is the time of year when the veils between the worlds are thinnest... and having your tarot cards read is a perfect way to get your night off to a mystical start.
Tarot cards have been used for hundreds of years as a way to gain insight into questions that we cannot answer ourselves. They aid us in seeking knowledge about the unknown through supernatural means. They are most commonly used to help us measure potential outcomes involving situations with people or certain events in our lives. Tarot cards can bring ideas and possibilities to light that we would have never thought of on our own.
Matthew Drewry Baker of The Hanged Man Co. is a San Francisco based artist and fortune teller who will be helping us all get in the magical mood with tarot card readings. Matthew will summon enchantment and will guide us as we glance into our future. He will send us off into a spooky night full of ghouls and ghosts with just the right amount of inner-reflection and some seriously witchy vibes. Join us for tarot card readings and blood orange cocktails on Halloween, Friday the 31st from 4pm-7pm.

Here's their story.
Kelly Whitesell and Elizabeth Del Castillo met at the age of 14. In high school was where they realized their shared interest in digging through thrift and antique stores, secretly competing in the quest for the best finds, leading to admiration and respect for each others closets and personal style. The girls both entered a costume design program linked to the prestigious Indiana University School of Music, which paired with the Apparel Merchandising program. This small program in the middle of Indiana is where the vision of Eskell was born. After college, Kelly headed to the Fashion Institute of Technology to study fashion design. Elizabeth concentrated on Apparel Merchandising and Costume Design. Upon graduation, Kelly worked as design assistant for the label Miguelina for two years, cutting her teeth at labels like Mayle. Elizabeth worked with Spiegel for four years handling fabric sourcing and regulating production and traveling the world for work. With their combined backgrounds in Costume & Fashion Design, Apparel Merchandise and Business, this intrepid twosome put their heads and skills together to create Eskell.
In 2005 Eskell, the store was opened in Chicago. The first collection was made entirely by the girls using a mix of old and new fabrics. The press written about Eskell store had constant mention of the in store designed line. By the time anything came to print the collection had sold out. The girls decided to explore the industry in a more serious way leading Eskell into production and wholesaling, landing in stores such as Fred Segal and Barneys.
