There is a wonderful organization in Wicker Park called 826 CHI. It's a resource for parents and kids alike offering writing classes, after school tutoring and so much more! It's a part of the super group 826 National and is hidden very cleverly behind Chicago's only super spy supply shop The Boring Store. This Saturday March 5th is their annual dance and By George do they know how to party! This year's theme is all things English so get your tickets and do make a good show!
Here is some more info from their website:
The dress for the British invasion of PROMME is second hand formal and/or dress as a person, landmark or thing from jolly old England.
Your Promme ticket includes refillable pints of the choicest brews from Haymarket pub, potato crisps and other snacks, a performance by Rod Stewart (impersonator extraordinaire Steve Bobbitt), silent auction (for items like tickets to Bonnaroo and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me among others), music from DJ Frier Tuck and DJ BellKim and dancing, dancing, dancing.
Must be 21+. Tickets are £25 or $40 in advance ($50 at the door). All the proceeds go to 826CHI's "tudor"ing and writing programmes.
Get your tickets before they're like Prince William and no longer available!
