Corner Bar this Friday – November 1st

Día de Muertos at Corner Bar!


Friday, November 1st, doors open at 6 pm.
All ages 6-9 pm
21+ after 9

Draft beer, wine and special cocktail Chili-infused Margarita, as well as Mexican Tequila shots.

DJ Rich brings the Funk from 6-7:30 pm, then Accidental Rhino will perform vintage acoustic jazz from the 1920′s and 30′s!

In the spirit of Día de Muertos, we will have an Altar de muertos upon which you may place a small memento of someone who has passed that you would like to remember. This can be a (small) photo, a poem, or just their name. Between sets of the band (8:30 or so) people can come up to the mic and share a short (30 seconds) remembrance. This can be merely saying their name, a humorous story, or whatever you would like others to know about this person. It should be a celebration. Barry, our master of ceremonies, will read something for you, if you desire.

Parental Guidance – Kids welcome until 9pm.  There are toys and games set up on tables. Parents, please be aware of your child’s activities.  Chasing games are discouraged.

OK, so maybe NOT everybody knows your name and we don’t ALWAYS have Proletariat Pizza and Salad, but this is still a nice article on the Corner Bar.

Where Everyone Knows Your Name: Three Cheers for the Family-Friendly Corner Bar

There were days long ago. Pre-kid days. Days when we used to go out. At night. And sometimes we’d drink. Where are those days and how do we get them back? And can we bring our kiddos? If you’re longing for those leisurely pre-kid nights, check out the Highland Park Improvement Club’s Corner Bar. It’s Fischer Price Little People and cold beer on tap. Music and dancing, complete with sippy cups and snack traps. Hey, it’s a Friday night where all you have to do is show up. And it’s totally fam-tastic!
