Plant Giving

February 19 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us for the Jewish holiday of Tu Bishvat at a private residence in Wicker Park and participate in a “white elephant” style of plant giving!

Each participant must bring a plant up to $25 in value to participate. A spread of the customary holiday foods will be served. Guests are welcome but capacity is limited so be sure to register to hold your spot.

Official rules:

1. Each participant will bring one plant up to $20 value

2. Participant will draw number to determine the order they will go in

3. Participants will sit or stand in a circle around the plant pile

4. First participant selects a plant from the pile

5. The following participant can choose to either pick a plant from the pile or steal a participant’s plant. Anyone who gets their plant chosen in this way can do the same – choose a new plant or take someone else’s. A plant can only be stolen once per turn.

6. After all participants have had a turn, first participant gets a chance to swap their gift he or she is holding.
