From our friends at North Branch Works:

FINKL STEEL Site- OPEN PUBLIC MEETING this Wednesday Nov. 19th 6 p.m.

WPB Library, 1701 N. Milwaukee-

You are invited to join us at this Open House-style meeting where Project Team members will be available to discuss specific project ideas, issues, and concerns that interest you. Your input will help us as we continue to develop North Branch River Works, a plan that will focus on the future of the A. Finkl & Sons Co., A. Lakin & Sons, and Gutmann Tannery sites and strive to enhance the value of surrounding neighborhoods by exploring issues related to business retention, job creation, livability, and transportation. The plan is funded through a Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA)

The folks at the Athenaeum have been wonderful hosts for our meetings this season.  We’d like to inform you of a fund raiser for the theater:

This Friday November 14, 2014 join us at the Diag & 404 Wine Bar to help the Athenaeum Theatre.  

We are inviting the resident partners, theatre companies,  casts, audiences of all shows at the Athenaeum to do their bit for the Athenaeum by having a bite!


For one night only The Diag will be offering a special prix fixe menu of items to patrons.

When you order off this special menu a portion of the purchase price will be contributed to the Athenaeum Theatre! (Excluding bar and gratuity)

This event will kick off the Athenaeum Theatre’s end of year giving campaign.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 before the end of 2014!


Your support of the Athenaeum Theatre will help the 50+ not-for-profit performing arts companies who created 600 memorable performances of theatre, music, comedy and dance over the past year

Great art deserves a great home.  The Athenaeum Theatre needs millions of dollars for several capital improvement projects and needed infrastructure upgrades.

Your contribution has a multiplier effect of benefitting this 104 year old building and providing for the arts groups that call the Athenaeum Theatre home.

As a non-profit dedicated to supporting the work of non-profit performance organizations, we keep our rental prices low and our services high.

Restoration fees and our modest space rental income cover only a fraction of our operating budget. Please help us continue our mission of providing an affordable and comfortable home for music, theatre and dance companies by investing in our work today.

Your contribution supports the ongoing operation, restoration and maintenance, of this century-old arts complex.

So have a bite at the Diag and help the Athenaeum Theatre take bite out of our fundraising goal!

Diag Bar and Gril two blocks south of the Athenaeum Theatre on Southport Ave.  To donate directly to the Athenaeum Theatre visit
