Thu November 1 at 7:00 PM, The Long Room
1612 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
So though the Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee has been silent for a few months (though I know many of us have not been inactive), the Long Room (which has hosted us many times) and 5 Rabbit Brewery are hosting a benefit for Chicago Votes. Let's hang before the weekend
From the invite:

"Vote, people! Let’s not play around. Join us this Thursday, along with our friends 5 Rabbit Brewery for a midterm elections fundraiser at 7PM to raise money for Chicago Votes. We will be pouring 5 Rabbit Xicago, Crimenes de Pasion and ChocoFrut Zarzamora. With the purchase of a 5 Rabbit draft, you will receive a ticket to redeem a free pint of Xicago on 11/6 to thank you for voting. Also, 25% of bar sales Thursday evening will go to Chicago Votes.

Chicago Votes is a non-partisan, non-profit organization building a more inclusive democracy by putting power in the hands of young people. Some of Chicago Votes programs include:

DemocracyCorps 2018: A 13 week grassroots, leadership development program for emerging leaders who want to learn how to organize.
Cook County Jail Votes: A hands on, in-person program with the goal of increasing access to the ballot and civic knowledge for those incarcerated in Illinois.
Parade To The Polls: A partnership with CPS Department of Social Science & Civic Engagement to take thousands of high school and college students on buses and marching on foot to go vote.

See you on Thursday!"

I'll be there in spirit, and will donate $10 (rounded up estimate of what my bar tab would be if I went) to Chicago Votes. Maybe I'll buy some 5Rabbit beer too, why not.
