--collective and experiential Megillah reading in Hebrew, w/summary translation and mystical interpretation, deepened by improvisational group vignettes/dramas. 7:30-9pm
--then dancing and all-round Ruckus until midnight.
Bring your drums, guitars, horns, etc! Dancing will include worldbeat, disco, New Wave, Motown and other types of music spun by Dj Bashert.

6968 N Clark, 2nd fl.

(it's also an awesome, newly renovated event space and this will be the first event in it!)
$10 Suggested Donation
It's a mitzvah to feed people and do tzedakah/justice on Purim, so bring your favorite triangle foods (or foods not normally triangle shaped, cut into triangles) for a pot luck.
Also, a minimum of 50% of the proceeds will go to Rogers Park Food Not Bombs
Furthermore, consider bringing boxes of pasta to shake at the mention of the Bad Guy, then add them to the donations for Food Not Bombs.
This is a child-friendly event, though there is no separate programming for the kinderlach. But kids like to dance, act and raise a ruckus, right?
The parade will start at the parking lot at Ashland & Morse, where we can park for free until 3:00 am. We will gather at 6:30 pm on the sidewalk on the Ashland side and begin the parade promptly at 6:45 pm. While it is only ~2 blocks to the event site, we expect to take ~15 minutes for the parade.Bring your pot luck items to the parking lot and they will be transported to the party.
It will be festive and loud!
