Weekly Update from Your Alderman
January 6, 2017
Thank you to all the neighbors who joined me on Wednesday evening for 48th Ward Night with Loyola University Men’s Basketball. It was a great game, and Loyola defeated Northern Iowa University. And a big thank you to Loyola University for welcoming us and for their commitment to our community.
Edgewater is home to over 20 theatre companies, including a number of award-winning groups. The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Edgewater theatres, has coordinated an Edgewater Theatre District Passport.
The passport works like a punch card at a coffee shop: bring the passport to each participating Edgewater theatre production you attend to receive a punch. After you receive five punches, the sixth show you attend will be free. Passports can be picked up at participating theatre locations (see complete list here) or at the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce office. Please support the vibrant arts scene in our community and check out some of the new plays premiering in the coming weeks. Click here to view our Arts & Entertainment calendar.
