Kenmore is heating up. Last December, the brand rolled out a string of stylish appliances. I’m smitten with the retro-looking Elite Steam CareT Washer and Dryer. The Elite Stand Mixer is on my wish list, too—it’s certainly charming enough to coax me into the kitchen. Thursday at 7 p.m., the brand will debut Kenmore Live Studios, a pop-up gallery meant to showcase its design-savvy. Appliances will be spot lit, suspended from the ceiling, and generally displayed as if they were works of art. Swankier than shopping at Sears, eh? Top Chef Stephanie Izard will also be on-hand to host cooking demos, and a troop from The Second City will perform sketch comedy about domestic duties. Thursday is the just the beginning, as the Studio is slated to span at least four weekends. Stop by 678 North Wells Street, Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. or Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 6 to 9 p.m. Look for more guest chefs to appear, including from Roger Herring of Socca and Matt Wile of Moonshine.
