Come mingle with MUSE/IQUE before STEP/LIVELY! MUSE/IQUE is excited to be back Around Town that they’re throwing a party before the party! Meet them at the Athletic Garage on Sunday, October 20, at 5:30 p.m.
Put your best foot forward!
It’s a costume party! The theme is “the shoes that matter to you.” Are they the brightest, funkiest, loudest shoes that you bought on a whim? Wear them! Are they the only pair of shoes you wore on an unforgettable vacation? Throw them on! MUSE/IQUE is elevating its small talk during this mingling hour, and they want you to share your shoe story. Ask your community members about their shoes! Walk a mile (metaphorically, of course) in someone’s else’s shoes.
Learn about the storied art of shoe repair!
MUSE/IQUE will be joined by Sam Chock, a shoe cobbler and shoe shiner from Willie’s Shoe Service, which has been providing all sorts of shoe services since 1956! If you have a scuff, Sam will be offering shoe shine services!
Armando Lopez will be demonstrating the art of shoe repair live! Armando Lopez is a shoe cobbler and shoe repairer from Zinke’s Drive-In Shoe Repair, which opened in Glendale in 1941 before moving to Pasadena five years ago.
Please bring a spare pair!
MUSE/IQUE is excited to be partnering with Soles4Souls, a non-profit that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothes. They will be hosting its on-site shoe drive! If you are able, please contribute a pair of new or gently used shoes.
Then, when the show starts at 7:00 p.m., Artistic Director Rachael Worby takes attendees on a lively journey that will change the way one thinks about their shoes.
The Athletic Garage is located at 121 Waverly Drive in Pasadena.
