Dear Paris,

This week take back those streets with the White Bear Avenue Parade Sept 16th - Join the Fun, don that Purple - we'll be marching with the Purple People. Those are folks who believe we could use that bus line to transform the Avenue for the better. Join our Unit! and shake the dust off that timeless Prince and Viking's gear. And hey it's about time for the Annual Gala - ESABA: Gateway to the East Side, Gateway to the World. Sept 28 - online launch, Oct 5 - in person. Dare we say those fateful words: Tickets. On. Sale. Now. It's official.


Thanks for a great event on Payne an Arcade: Great Job, Uniquely East Side!
