The 826CHI annual fundraiser will take place at the Stan Mansion, one of many places that exist in two places, on a street very close to the Logan Square blue line L stop and on the web. To thwart any possible confusion, the event will take place at this address: 2408 North Kedzie, Chicago, IL 60647, not this address: http://www.stanmansion.com.
They encourage folks to dress in second-hand formal finest and/or as a person, place or meme from the Internet.
Tickets are 20 bitcoin or $40 [$50 at the door] and can be purchased … through the very internet we’re celebrating. Ticket includes bottomless cups of Haymarket beer, Virtue Cider, snacks, access to a silent auction, music, and dancing, dancing, dancing. All proceeds from the evening go to support 826CHI’s free writing programs for thousands of Chicago students.
