- 6pm: Martial Arts Demonstration by Fonseca Martial Arts. Created by Elisa Au Fonseca and John Fonseca, Fonseca Martial Arts' curriculum and approach are designed to work with people of all levels of skill and fitness from beginning to advanced to bring out the best in every individual. Stop by at 6pm to check out a great martial arts demonstration!
- 7pm: Live Performance by Canasta. Boasting a six‐person line‐up, Canasta has always augmented the standard rock set-up with piano, keyboard, violin and trombone. But despite an ever‐changing roster that has included fifteen members (!), founders Matt Priest and Elizabeth Lindau continue to keep the orchestrations meticulous, the lyrics thoughtful, the melodies unforgettable and the sound uniquely “Chicagoan.” Since forming, they’ve managed to live out one rock n’ roll dream after another. They’ve toured the country—hitting CMJ and SXSW—and back at home, headlined the legendary Metro and held the prestigious Schubas residency. Check out their beats this Thursday!
