Bridgepork : August 22-23,2014

Maria’s, which has been in existence for 27 years and has been witness to many changes in Bridgeport, is kicking off our four year anniversary (since our revamping) on Friday, August 22 with Bridgepork, a celebration of great beer, bar b q and music. We will be paying tribute to the vision and perseverance of our own maternal presence, Maria Marszewski, who opened the tavern/package goods store when Bridgeport was closely aligned to the workings of the local Democratic machine and through its many manifestations and its current gentrification that has been dubbed “The Community of the Future”. To give Maria proper tribute for the steadfastness of her vision we will unveil a specially commissioned portrait of her that will then be hung in its place of honor on the walls of her self-named bar.
 
We will be featuring our current crop of Marz Brewery beers including The Machine (American Pale Ale), The Bubbly Creek and The Bubbly Creek YUZU (both Berliner Weiss) and Smoke Wheat Every Day (a Grätzer) , The Bridgeporter, at $1 off the draft price. We will be also pouring some specialty brews that we’ve been saving deep in our vaults particularly for this occasion including Firestone Walker XVII Anniversary, The Bruery Sucre, Revolution 4th Year Quad, North Coast/Goose Island Class of ’88, Surly Darkness and other rare suds.
You can also pair your beers with some tasty treats from our outdoor Korean Polish BBQ cookout (a Monday evening summer staple) in the back patio featuring free brats, kimchee ( by Ajoohma’s Apron) to spice up the palette and various side dishes to warm your soul and fill your appetite.
 
At 9 PM until closing we will be featuring the Secret Disco monthly residency helmed by deep diggin’ DJ Joe Bryl which month after month brings to light the varied tones, textures and hidden histories of Disco from its roots in both funk, atmospheric electronics, sweaty soul and minimal micro-beats.

960 W. 31st Street, Chicago, IL. 60608 - 773.890.0588 - www.community-bar.comMaria’s will be continuing it’s celebration our four year anniversary on Saturday, August 23 with Bridgepork Part Deux a weekend of great beer, food and music. We will transform our outdoor parking lot beginning at 4 PM (and continuing throughout the early evening) into a festive mini-court with a mixture of some of our favorite local bands. Noted Chef Kevin Hickey, previous of the Four Seasons, current Director of Food & Beverage for Rockit Ranch Productions and of the soon to open Duck Inn (2701 S. Eleanor at the fringe of Bridgeport) will be slinging some tasty edible treats.

Brian Mier Slow Ride

Lumpen Publishing presents:

Slow Ride - By Brian Mier -
ISBN: 978-0-9905023-0-2

[ Purchase as a Blurb Book
]

We are pleased to announce the occassion of printing our first Lumpen novel. It is by Brian Mier, a long time contibutor and Editor of Lumpen magazine.

Brian Mier grew up on the North Side of Chicago and has lived in Brazil since 1999.  He is currently a policy analyst at the Centro de Direitos Economicos e Sociais. From 2007 to 2012 he was a member of the national directorate of the Brazilian National Urban Reform Forum (FNRU). He has worked with the Landless Peasants Movement (MST) and was a two time speaker at the World Social Forum. Brian has written extensively on Brazilian news and culture for the underground press over the years. His writing has appeared in Lumpen and Vice, and elsewhere.


About SlowRide

A double-trailer rig winds its way slowly through the Brazilian countryside.  Zeca, an old-fashioned, macho truck driver decides to break up with his wife. As he drives along, his niece ridicules his sexist ways. Slow Ride is an anti-adventure travel story created through mixing audio transcriptions of a real truck ride with fictional and expository passages. Inspired by Sam Miller's "Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity", it finds the humor in mundane events and offers a window into Brazil, a country struggling to reconcile the old with the new.
