Aug 31   24th Anniversary Party at Delilah's
Mark your calendar & join Delilah's as they celebrate their 24th Anniversary!!!
 
Delilah’s opened in 1993 in a space that has been a bar since 1894. They have been open every day since the start - that will be more than 8700 straight days, and Delilah’s has established itself as one of the most recognized taverns on the planet! Between the nightly DJ sets, world class selection of beer and whiskey, film screenings, art exhibits and great service, Delilah’s has come to be a regular gathering spot for like minded people for more than two decades. So for their 24th Anniversary we will be throwing another seriously fantastic bash!!!
 
They’re launching a new Whiskey, they’ll have some DJing from Jump Up! Records’ Ska & Reggae DJ Chuck Wren, perhaps another curious visit from Fisto The Clown and all sorts of additional ridiculousness to begin another fantastic year at Chicago’s most infamous cavern tavern.
 
They hope you can make it!

Sep 20   CAPS Hospitality Subcommittee Meeting

Topic: DePaul University Students

CAPS stands for Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy. This successful program is a partnership between the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and local communities. CAPS, which began in 1993, “brings the police, the community, and other City agencies together to identify and solve neighborhood crime problems, rather than simply react to their symptoms after the fact.” Read more about CAPS at the CPD website.

The idea of forming a CAPS Hospitality Subcommittee for Lincoln Park businesses came as the direct result from feedback the LPCC received from bar and restaurant members who wanted an ongoing forum to discuss items relating to the hospitality industry. The businesses also wanted a way to receive information in a timely matter about issues such as city ordinances, state laws, liquor licenses, security and neighborhood concerns. This subcommittee helps establish better synergy and communication between the City of Chicago, Chicago Police Department and Lincoln Park bar and restaurant owners and managers.
