Come join the monthly party in the neighborhood! This month brings us, Los Flacos. They perform a blend of the spiciest traditional sounds of Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. They will delight and amaze and most certainly provide the energy for your dancing feet.

Celebrating our Centennial by the decade! The next installment brings the 50s (1949 – 1958) into the picture, so dress accordingly, come in character, take photos in our booth, and stop in to check out our amazing new installment of the HPIC Banners that will be on display at each Corner Bar, thanks to our amazing volunteers – Dina Johnson, Kay Kirkpatrick, Julie Schickling, and other special contributors – that have put so much effort into documenting our history in such an amazing way.

As always, all ages, food and drink for purchase! Hope to see you this Friday.

HPIC Spring Work Party: Sunday April 14th

10AM to 2PM

Spring is here and we’re calling on all our incredible volunteers!  HPIC is ready to emerge from the dreary winter and freshen up the club!  This is a perfect opportunity to roll up your sleeves and help us prepare the club for warmer weather.  Even an hour of your time is greatly appreciated.

We’ll be cleaning and organizing stuff around the building, repairing a window, gardening, cleaning the table & chairs (with a pressure washer! It’ll be fun!), and will also sport safety vests to do some neighborhood pickup. We have tasks for all ages and abilities, we just appreciate your help. Get HPIC ready for the summer ahead. Students looking for volunteer hours, and families Welcome!  Dress appropriately, bring your garden gloves and any tools you can.

And YES, there will be food!!! We’ll have coffee and donuts in the AM, and will be grilling up some delicious food in the afternoon to feed all your generous souls that come out to help.

Together, we make Highland Park the BEST place to live.

Corner Bar – Friday April 5, starting at 6pm

Our exploration of Corner Bar takes us to the heart of the solar system. Energy crackles, fusion unleashes, galaxies are born and destroyed. A futuristic guitar unlocks the gateway and releases the possibilities the future holds. The man with the keys will be our guide through the quantum wilderness. The drummer will push and pull us across the spectrum of the fourth dimension. Adventure awaits those who cross the threshold.

Make sure your friends and neighbors do not miss the unique opportunity presented this first friday. A tale to be remembered for the ages. Your guides into the mist are Joe Doria (keys), Ari Joshua (guitar), and Brad Gibson (drums). Watch, listen, as they harness the forces of the universe. Believe!

All are welcome. Refreshments and sustenance are available for purchase. Entrance to the cosmos is free!

Celebrating our Centennial by the decade! The next installment brings the 40s (1939 – 1948) into the picture, so dress accordingly, come in character, take photos in our booth, and stop in to check out our amazing new installment of the HPIC Banners that will be on display at each Corner Bar, thanks to our amazing volunteers – Dina Johnson, Kay Kirkpatrick, Julie Schickling, and other special contributors – that have put so much effort into documenting our history in such an amazing way.

Corner Bar – Friday March 1, starting at 6pm

Celebrating our Centennial by the decade! The next installment brings the 30s into the picture. We have a combination of fabulous talents providing the soundtrack to another Corner Bar. Old Man Millis will spin shellac from years of old. Presenting the sounds that began to creep into the general collective experience.

HYWAYS will ride the road that was paved in the countryside, through the farmlands, and out to the west. Their country visions provide the soundtrack and push us along the landscape that is recalled from the not so distant past.

Help us gather with our neighbors and friends in pushing on through the hard times in order to come out on the other side. Reborn and refreshed.

You are invited to a community screening of the feature length documentary film CRAZYWISE, directed by Phil Borges and Kevin Tomlinson.

$10 tickets, for sale at the door

7:00PM: Mix & Mingle (light hors d’oeuvres provided, beverages for purchase)
8:00PM: Screening of CRAZYWISE
9:30PM: Discussion & Q&A w/ director Phil Borges

About the Film:
What if a psychological crisis was seen as having the potential to be a positive transformative experience, instead of a “broken brain”?
Human-rights photographer Phil Borges witnessed how indigenous cultures around the world often identify “psychotic” symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential.
Back in the US, Phil follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation. Ekhaya, 32, survives several suicide attempts before spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer. CRAZYWISE introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.

Corner Bar is growing up and we want to hire a few bartenders!

Corner Bar is about to turn 5 years old! To date, it has been completely staffed by our hard-working, dedicated, passionate volunteers.  That’s around 1500 hours of our volunteers’ love, sweat, and cocktails in bartending time alone! Not to mention the countless additional hours spent to make Corner Bar happen each month – coordinating the food, cocktails, kegs, band, inventory, shopping, prepping, setup/cleanup, etc.  It’s a big effort.  It’s also a great reward for us.  We love our neighbors.

The time has come for our volunteers to enjoy Corner Bar from the other side of the bar – with a beverage in hand – and I think we can all agree they’ve earned it.

So we’re hiring a couple of bartenders to help run the bar!  If you are interested in serving the community, meeting new people, and want to be a part of ensuring Corner Bar continues to be a success for years to come, we want you to join our team!  We’re looking for 1-2 more bartenders to add to our team.  You must have a valid MAST permit. Pay is $15/hour + tips, and the primary shift we need help with is 5PM to 12AM on the first Friday of every month.  We are also working on exciting new events to bring to the club that will provide more opportunities to tend bar at HPIC.

If interested, please contact Nicole Mazza at hpic1919@gmail.com!

Cheers!  It’s fun, we promise.
