Join me for a special holiday edition of “Follow Me on Friday” as we take in some stunning visual art in the newly furnished Mezz Gallery, located on the mezzanine level of one of Rogers Park’s most popular music venues, the Mayne Stage, 1328 W. Morse.
Mezz Gallery exhibits the art work of Rogers Park artists and celebrates the diversity of our neighborhood by capturing the community’s point of view on social, ecological, political, and creative matters in a two-dimensional format. All exhibits are open to the public.
Take in the latest exhibit while enjoying some delicious appetizers and a complimentary beer, wine or soda, courtesy of the Act One Pub.
As an added holiday bonus and a thank you for attendingFollow Me on Friday, the folks at Mayne Stage/Act One Pub will be giving away a preloaded $5 “Rewards Card” to anyone who enrolls in their rewards card program. Use the card to get $5 off on the purchase of food and beverages at the Mayne Stage and Act One Pub.
The rewards card program is a new incentive that rewards patrons $1 for every $10 spent on food and beverages at the theater and restaurant.
Any artist who lives or works in Rogers Park is eligible to submit their work for exhibition at theMezz Gallery. Exhibits consist of either the work of a solo artist, a group show or a theme-inspired show. Exhibits rotate monthly and entries are juried and curated by Mezz Gallery. For questions, contact Joseph Deschene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“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.
