Our Uptown Friday Night venue, Robbie's Restaurant, suffered extreme water damage some weeks ago. The restaurant is undergoing repairs and is closed until further notice. Thus, Uptown Friday Night is on hiatus.
To show our support to the staff of Robbie's Restaurant who are unable to work during repairs, the Springfield Area Arts Council is hosting a fund-raiser.
Friday, July 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 P.M.
Old State Capitol Plaza, east side
Free will offerings collected – for restaurant staff
50/50 raffle – for Prairie Archives (which also suffered water damage), an in-kind sponsor of Artist on the Plaza
Band: All Frets Jazz Ensemble (from the national convention that's in Springfield this week)
Attendees should bring lawn chairs, food, and beverages.
Call the Arts Council at 217-753-3519 for details.
