I'm trying to clear the decks to go on hiatus, but there's always something: Thursday Surly tapping, someone asking me prettyplease to list their event, so forth.

Friday, November 11

Hail to the Chairman Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar, 960 W. 31st St., Chicago Half Acre Brewing Co., 4257 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago (773) 248 4038 On 11/11/11, we are releasing a commemorative Lumpen 20th Anniversary beer called The Chairman. It’s an Imperial Red Ale created to remember the men and women who worked on Lumpen magazine and became Chairmen of the Boring Theoretical Party (BTP). The Boring Theoretical Party began in the 1990’s. It was Lumpen magazine’s response to the boring, and uh, theoretically inclined armchair lefties. We started a “Worker’s Newspaper” edited by Chairman Thar, our beloved leader. Our symbols were the Armadillo and the Hoe. We had a theme song, a salute (raised fist while yawning), and we promoted that everyone should be the Chairman of their own Party. You have a chance to bring a Chairman to the Party. Get a bottle (or three) at Half Acre Brewing Company or Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar on November 11, 2011. We will celebrate at Maria’s with a Half Acre Tap Takeover, pouring drafts of The Chairman, Lagertown Novemberfest, Barrel Aged Small Animal Big Machine, Mr. Ouroboros, Daisy Cutter, Over Ale and other treats from the brewery. Bottle Sales begin at Half Acre at 11 am. Join Maria's for the party at 8:00 p.m...
