Below are two upcoming events you might enjoy:
HOME WEATHERIZATION WORKSHOP
Last night’s first hard freeze is a harbinger of things to come. Now is the time to make sure your house if fully weatherized to save on home energy bills and lower your carbon footprint.
Join me for a free Home Weatherization Workshop, Monday, November 22nd, 6:00 p.m., at the Rogers Park Library, 6907 N. Clark Street (at Farwell). Sponsored by 49th Ward Green Corps seasoned building professionals, Jim Laukes and Theo Harduvel of the Environmental Exchange, the workshop will offer techniques, tips and hands-on experiences with weatherizing your home.
Free weatherization kits will be provided. Come and have fun with caulk and weather-stripping and leave with knowledge and materials to see you through the winter in cozy comfort!

I’m hosting another of my popular “Follow Me on Friday” events this Friday, November 19th, 5-7 p.m., at theRed Line Tap, 7006 N. Glenwood (just north of Lunt) in the heart of the popular Glenwood Avenue Arts District. Billed as one of Rogers Park’s friendliest taverns, the Red Line Tap will offer you a complimentary beer or wine and I’ll kick in for free appetizers to folks who follow me on Facebook or bring a copy of this e-mail.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants and pubs. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant or pub 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 havebeen to before.
