The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) – the heart of our community since 1919.
HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers.

We’re YOUR gathering place in the community. Join us for our next neighborhood event!


Thank you to our Sponsors and Donors

Corner Bar – Friday June 7, starting at 6pm

Goodness me. Come on down to the monthly party. We’ll all be here. You should join us. Food and drink for purchase. Free admittance. Bring cash to tip the band! Doors are at 6. Band plays around 8. Bring the whole family.

“Robot Sunsets are an ever-tightening performance outfit, featuring the inimitable Lars Larson on drums (he has a kick cowbell, y’all), the embarrassingly talented David Russell on bass (we have more bass solos than guitar solos), the musical mastermind of Jason Puccinelli on guitar and vocals (he’s got more jam than Smuckers’ got jelly), and Jed Dunkerley, singing lead and writhing around (to quote Evan Mosher after our last show: ‘…like a combination of Tom Jones and David Byrne.’) The music of Robot Sunsets will get you laughing and thinking while wanting to dance.

In case you can’t tell – the next installment brings the 60s (1959 – 1968) into (or out of) focus. So dress accordingly, come in character, borrow colorful 60s props, and pose for photos in our classy booth. Check out the splendid June installment of the HPIC Decade Banners – a new graphic design montage on display each month at Corner Bar, to help us get immersed in those fabulous bygone times. It’s the living end!

Art Lounge – Friday June 14, starting at 7pm

Album Side Saturday – Saturday June 15, 4pm to 8pm

Record spinning, food eating and general good times! Come hang out with the neighborhood!

The Highland Park Improvement Club is Celebrating its Centennial Birthday all through 2019!

We will be honoring this significant milestone all year long at Corner Bar and in our newsletter, each month revealing a theme and connection to what was going on in the world and our community, culminating in a large celebration in November 2019! We seek to share the biography of our story over the past 100 years, commemorating our rich historical presence  and meaningful contributions to the community, honoring the people that have defined and sustained our presence and made us what we are today, and inspiring every neighbor to join the volunteer family that makes up the spirit of HPIC, ensuring our continued presence for the next 100 years to come. Come celebrate with us!
