Historic Pullman Hosts the 43rd Annual House Tours

October 08, 2016 at Pullman National Monument in Chicago.


The Historic Pullman Foundation and the Pullman Civic Organization will host their 43rd Annual House Tour on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9, 2016. The tour will feature a glimpse into eight private homes in the Historic Pullman District of Chicago. A cross-section of different housing types including executive homes, skilled craftsman homes and workers cottages will be featured allowing visitors to see how these privately owned homes have been renovated and restored by the owners.

Built in the 1880’s, these landmark homes are a unique part of Chicago‘s history. The Pullman Historic District contains nearly 1,000 of the original residential structures of the town and many significant public buildings — all designed by the then 26-year old Solon S. Beman between 1880 and 1893. The Pullman Historic District, a City, State and National Historic Landmark since 1972, is a peerless example of an industrial planned community. Today, enthusiastic residents of this vibrant area are involved with the preservation of the District and its heritage.

The Pullman House Tour will begin at the Pullman National Monument Visitor Center, 11141 South Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago, where visitors can view exhibits on the Town of Pullman and a 20-minute introductory video that will be shown every half hour. The self-guided tour will feature seven Pullman residences and the Greenstone Church — all open for viewing from 11 am to 5 pm. In addition, while at the Visitor Center, guests will enjoy the opportunity to view all of the creative House Tour posters — some now very collectible — from the past 42 years.

Musical entertainment on Saturday, Harmonica Jimmy’s Blues Band featuring Mississippi Jerry Jones will play “Under the Arches” around Market Hall., Q Kiser will entertain us with his Qombo on the Arcade Park Bandstand, Sunday, the Arcade Park Bandstand will feature the Mudcats Dixieland Band. Additionally, classic cars will be on display Sunday.

Pullman was built by rail car magnate George M. Pullman as a planned community of homes, shops, schools, recreational facilities and industry in the form of his Pullman Palace Car Company — famous for its elegant sleeping cars. Built for workers to escape the dangers of the city’s industrial workplace, Pullman provided a clean, safe and aesthetically pleasing environment for his workers to live and work. In return, Pullman could recruit the best craftsmen from around the world to live in what was billed as ‘The World’s Most Perfect Town.” Today, Pullman is a diverse neighborhood on Chicago’s far south side, with a community that is focused on the area’s preservation.

House Tour tickets may be purchased for $20 in advance through 5:00 PM October 6th

Online: www.pullmanhousetour2016.brownpapertickets.com; by phone at 773-785-8901, or $23 at the door on the days of the event. All proceeds from ticket sales benefit restoration projects in Pullman.

Pullman is located four blocks west of I-94 (Calumet/Bishop Ford Expressway) at exit 66A (111th Street). The Visitor Center is located at the corner of 112th street and Cottage Grove Avenue. Pullman is also accessible by the Metra Electric commuter rail line at the 111th Street/Pullman or the 115th Street/Kensington station, and the CTA bus line #111/Pullman. For more information, call 773-785-8901 or visit www.pullmanil.org.

Chicago Community Bond Fund Volunteer Orientation

September 18, 2016 at Westside Justice Center in Chicago.


CCBF needs volunteers to continue and expand our work! Come to a volunteer orientation to learn about our work and find out how you can get involved.

Sunday, September 18, 2016
Westside Justice Center
601 S California., Chicago, IL
All attendees must please register prior to the training at the link.

Volunteers are needed to:
1. Provide direct support to someone CCBF bonds out (regular check-ins, court support, etc)
2. Fundraise
3. Get involved with education and advocacy efforts to abolish cash bond
4. Compile resource lists for post bond support
5. Write grants
and Various other tasks

With additional volunteers we can increase our ability to support the 33 people CCBF has already post bond for, and provide support to many more people we bond out in the future. Even more importantly at this critical time, we can build a popular movement to abolish cash bond in Illinois in its entirety!

You can contact us at Max@chicagobond.org with any questions. If you cannot attend on September 18th but would like to be informed of future trainings, please let us know that!

Please share this invitation with others who may be interested!

*CCBF pays bond for people charged with crimes in Cook County, Illinois. Through a revolving fund, CCBF supports individuals whose communities cannot afford to pay the bonds themselves and who have been impacted by structural violence. Inability to pay bond results in higher rates of conviction, longer sentences, loss of housing and jobs, separation of families, and lost custody of children. By paying bond, CCBF restores the presumption of innocence before trial and enables recipients to remain free while fighting their cases. CCBF also engages in public education about the role of bond in the criminal legal system and advocates for the abolition of money bond. CCBF is committed to long­term relationship building and organizing with people most directly impacted by criminalization and policing.

Blood Red Boots / The Blind Spots (NY) / Animal Holograms

September 18, 2016 at Emporium Arcade Bar in Chicago.


FREE // 21+ // 1366 N MILWAUKEE AVE

Blood Red Boots
The youngest band to win WGN’s Breakthrough Band contest (June 2012), Blood Red Boots was chosen over ninety other bands while making their first national TV appearance. Grabbing the attention of major producer Manny Sanchez (Smashing Pumpkins, Fall Out Boy . . .), Blood Red Boots recorded their debut EP and released tracks that have been featured on TV shows (“90210”) and have garnered critical acclaim. With a growing national presence, the band’s song “War Paint” has been featured in radio and TV ads during the Grammys, The Beatles 50 Year Tribute, and pretty much daily for CBS’s TV series, Survivor. Their modern original sound has been compared to Coldplay, Muse, and New Politics: “ . . . an infectious blend of indie pop with dance/electronica overtones.” Named “THE Chicago band to watch in 2012″ by examiner.com, they were listed first in the top five must see local Chicago bands. Blood Red Boots has garnered thousands of twitter followers and at the end of 2012, the band won the Ernie Ball contest to play at Warped Tour Chicago 2013. Blood Red Boots prides itself in being all-original and is playing in support of their most recent EP, Countless Nights.

The Blind Spots (NY)
This Ithaca, NY-based, all original, female-fronted, five-piece band is driving hard at bigger things and has been busy building an airtight justification for all of the buzz surrounding it, both in its hometown and throughout the region. The band only gets better, with its solid-as-a-rock rhythm section, eclectic library of keyboard sounds, and bold and inventive electric guitar stylings. Electrifying lead vocalist and force of nature Maddy Walsh can hang with the best of them, continuing to reach new heights with her voice at every show and on every recording.

Animal Holograms
Sonic therapy for those who need intense, psychedelically inspired, stylistically inchoative music to free wild things built up inside.

Domaine des Ardoisieres

August 30, 2016 at Table, Donkey and Stick in Chicago.


A rare opportunity to taste through the range of wines made at this tiny, compelling estate in the mountains of Savoie.

Cuvee Argile Blanc St-Pierre de Soucy 2014 – $7/glass
Cuvee Argile Blanc St-Pierre de Soucy 2013 – $8/glass
Cuvee Quartz BlancCoteau de Cevins 2014 – $10/half glass
Cuvee Schiste Blanc Coteau de Cevins 2014 – $12/glass
Cuvee Amethyste Rouge Coteau de Cevins 2014 – $13/glass

From Domaine des Ardoisieres, it seems Mont Blanc is everywhere. The towering mountain watches over this small estate near the Swiss border from every angle, shaping the wines so expertly grown and made here.The domaine was planted during Roman times, then became overgrown with forest. A passionate group of supporters cleared the vineyard in 1998 and began piecing the steep terraces back together to create Domaine des Ardoisieres. Since 2005, Champagne native Brice Omont has taken over the winemaking and is now considered one of the most exciting producers in France. For the very first time, Brice’s wines are being imported to the United States.The domaine’s 17 acres of vineyards are planted on steep, rocky slopes high above the town of Freterive. The entire production is sourced from two single vineyard sites: Cevins and St. Pierre de Soucy. The domaine produces five different cuvées (three white, two red) using the area’s unique varietals, including Altesse, Jacquère, Mondeuse, Gamay and Persan. The domaine has employed biodynamic principles in the vineyard since the vines were planted. The reds are produced without any de-stemming, and all the wines are fermented with native yeasts.
Brice’s wines are brilliantly unique, capturing the stony and mineral character of the vineyard terraces, and possessing an amazing crystalline purity. Drinking these wines from the side of Mont Blanc is like tasting freshly squeezed juice running off a glacier.
