The 13th Annual Glenwood Arts Festival is this weekend and I’m kicking it off with a Follow Me on Friday to the cobblestone streets of Glenwood Avenue to celebrate the arrival of one of the hottest new bars in theGlenwood Avenue Arts District and enjoy some tasty treats from a favorite Glenwood restaurants.
Founded and operated by Rogers Park residentsErik Archambeault and William Meek, Rogers Park Social strives to mindfully infuse the spirit of community, diversity, and service in all that they offer, providing a unique and inviting venue featuring craft beers and cocktails with freshly squeezed juices–lovingly created and served by your friends and neighbors.
Enjoy a complimentary wine, beer, cocktail or a Grahama Iced Tea in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that feels more like a living room or den than a bar.
After enjoying some food and drink, follow me forsome live music and fun to the Friday Night Cobblestone Jam, the Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival’s launch party. The Cobblestone Jam will be held on Glenwood between Morse and Lunt, this Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
