Chicago’s in-person events are back, and Heron Agency diligently works behind the scenes to make these events a success.

On Wednesday night, Carnivale hosted a “Love always Wins” event to celebrate their newly completed mural. Carnivale, located in the West Loop, celebrated the night in their vibrant dining space while offering Latin-inspired appetizers and exotic cocktails. Arriving guests were escorted to the mural where they responded with admiration for the mural’s beauty before joining the main party.

The “Love Always Wins” mural is recognized as the largest mural in Chicago. During a three-month period of a cold Chicago winter, this artist used his passion, skills and 600 gallons of paint to create this enormous piece of art. The mural features bright, beautiful, colorful flowers surrounding the message of “Love Always Wins.” To the side, there is an illustration of a beautiful woman who was actually inspired by the artist’s wife. The mural’s artist, Asend, began his career in Chicago as a graffiti artist. From studio paintings to the largest mural in Chicago, he instills inspiration his background in to all that he creates.

The lively atmosphere filled with media and influencers enjoying cocktails was the perfect way to show that Chicago events are back and better than ever. Throughout the night a variety of signature cocktails and appetizers were served to guests, but their Red Sangria was the most popular request. The combination of red wine, orange curacao, strawberry, mango and soda made for a refreshing summer treat.As for appetizers, guests feasted on the empanadas and ropa vieja tacos made with braised beef, pickled inions, Aioli, queso fresco and sweet plantains. During the night, guests heard speeches from the general manager and the owner himself who were both proud and thankful for the mural and all the work put in making the evening such a success. Heron Agency could not be more excited to be back in the field with in-person events. We look forward to celebrating more of Chicagoland and beyond in the coming months
