Thanksgiving Brunch, Performances Inspire Holiday Cheer This Week in McKinley Park

Published November 19, 2018

The McKinley Park neighborhood begins the holiday season this week with Thanksgiving celebrations, including the Thanksgiving Communal Brunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22. Join 12th Ward Alderman George Cardenas, community members and friends for a free feast at the McKinley Park field house. Now in its 15th year, the event includes food, drink and entertainment, presented with the help of St. Augustine College. Advance registration is required: Call the 12th Ward office at (773) 523-8250 to sign up.

The three experimental musicians holding a standing Wednesday night residency at Marz Community Brewing Co. return this Wednesday, November 21, for a pre-Thanksgiving blowout version of Jazz on Marz with the Jazzeros. Stop in the tap room starting at 8 p.m. for free sets of live jazz.

Tuesday night, November 20, offers two top choices for fans of gaming and beer: Loteria Night at One City Tap offers four rounds of this "most competitive game" between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. At Marz Brewing, the Level Eater Nine - Prologue Adventure drops a top-tier, Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons game into adventurers' laps as part of an introductory adventure series leading up to the Level Eater Nine main dungeon in January, with all proceeds going toward the non-profit Lumpen Radio.

More fun at Marz happens Friday night, November 23, with a set by DJ Sol Son. On Saturday in the Marz Brewing tap room, DJ Alicia Serrano spins.
