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.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
