Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar presents
Monday, December 31 – 9PM-2AM – Free, No Cover
Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar – 960 w 31st street
Featuring DJ Jennifer Burns (aka B-Side)
With the Presidential election settled (try telling that to those states who want to secede), discussions for a possible compromise between both Democrats and Republicans are taking place within the beltway on the looming “fiscal cliff”. This crisis is scheduled to go in effect on midnight of December 31, 2012 (New Years Eve) due to the enactment of the Budget Control Act of 2011 which features a number of tax increases and spending cuts that are expected to weigh heavily on growth and possibly drive the economy back into a recession. “Say it ain’t so, Joe (Lieberman)?”
We here at Maria’s are taking a stand against this impending “Thelma & Louise” economic crisis by hosting a fiscally responsible, cost-cutting “New Years Eve of Destruction (?)” party on Monday, December 31 (9PM – 2AM). To protect against any budget deficits that might impact your personal economy our “New Years Eve of Destruction” will be free to one and all with no exorbitant cover charge that is the norm on the holiday. Let the tavern ring out, “Free at last, free at last!”
The event will also feature a complimentary glass of champagne at midnight, another budgetary concern to cut unneeded spending during these precarious financial times, free party favors, appetizing appetizers and $1 off all draft beers. We will of course offer our vast selection of craft beers, community cocktails and whiskeys and spirits to ring in the new year. These GDP’s (Good Damn Pours) if taken in too quickly may lead to a more difficult next-day recovery that is predicted by economists and bartenders alike.
Another leading indicator for a better overall recovery will be the “deep cuts” of DJ B-Side (Jennifer Burns). She will raise the roof, therefore protecting us all from the debt ceiling, with hard-hitting non-partisan measures including Chicago House, 80′s jams, disco, funk and soul.
