A Rare Opportunity
It's not Uptown Update's usual policy to publicize political fundraisers. 24 candidates running for three aldermanic offices in 2011 cured us of that inclination.
But there's an exception to every rule, and the "perk" associated with this fundraiser is so cool that we feel we would be remiss if we didn't make our readers aware of the opportunity. The perk: A tour of the Uptown Theater. Citizens For Cappleman is holding a fundraiser celebrating the alderman's first year in office on May 17th at Fat Cat, and the price of admission includes a tour of the long-shuttered theater.
All the current members of Team UU are lucky enough to have been inside the theater at various times, and each of us found it awe-inspiring. We wish the same experience for everyone in Uptown, whether it be this tour or another opportunity. We hope the glimpses we are able to get now are just the "before pictures" that we can at some point compare with the "after pictures" of a fully restored and functional Uptown Theater.
