Notes from the Canaryville Aldermanic Forum

****Candidate answers are paraphrased and not exact quotes, except what is in quotes.****

Kozlar(ski), Sullivan, Thompson take the stage at the St. Gabriel Church Auditorium. I've never seen Kozlar or Thompson in person, but I've been reading about them extensively. It feels like a celebrity sighting to me. Maybe that's how looking in the mirror feels to them. Fresh off Chicago Tonight, they are stars in some circles now.

Event Pick--- Bridgeport Third Fridays--Friday January 16

It is "Third Fridays" here in Bridgeport, which means that the Bridgeport Art Center, Zhou B Art Gallery, Co-Prosperity Sphere & the galleries on Morgan St will be open & giving out free booze/snacks. 

As a neighborhood, it would be helpful to brand these events as "Third Friday" because I can never remember what day of the month it is on. 

Galleries are open from 6-10.

Event Pick-- Eat at MeztiSoy in Pilsen -- Sunday January 11

It is rare for me to promote leaving Bridgeport for any extended period of time, but MeztiSoy, on 18th St between Paulina and Walcott, is delicious enough, and close enough, that you should get your act together and stop in. Or get your friend with a car to drive you.
