The only way we're going to beat the stir crazies this fall and winter is if we bundle up, get outside and take advantage of safe events. With this in mind, The East Side Art Lot, a new creative public space located in the heart of Milwaukee's East Side neighborhood, will offer a special "Live At The Lot" event featuring drinks, live music, socially-distanced seating and access to 15 nearby restaurants. 

The fun takes place on Thursday, October 22nd from 4:30 to 8 p.m. The East Side Art Lot is located in the former parking lot at 1915 E. North Ave. between Beans & Barley and Von Trier.

The cost is $55 per group (in advance) and includes an hour of live music from Mic Over Matter, six drinks and your group's spot at one of the Art Lot's tables painted by local artists. Live at the Lot is hosted by Von Trier and additional drinks will be available for purchase (drink selection TBA). Any extra tickets will be sold at the event for $60.

The maximum group size per reservation is six people and groups must remain at their table throughout the event (when not at the bar) in order to maintain distance between groups of people. Reservable time slots are from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and from 6:30 to 8 p.m. 

Masks and social distancing are required. Guests must be at least 21 years old to attend. Proceeds from this event help maintain the East Side Art Lot and host future socially-distanced programming.
