The New Saloon // Counting Votes

  • Temperance Beer Co 2000 West Dempster Street Evanston, IL, 60202 United States (map)

We've reached the starting line! Votes for Evanston municipal elections will be counted April 4 starting at 7 PM. We'll be showing them live and providing an option for those looking for an alternative to the candidate watch parties, a neutral gathering space for open discussion.

Back in the 19th century, "more than the beer, saloons provided a gathering place in a nation with little public space for working-class men to argue the issues or meet the candidates."* 

"What we need, more than tweets or memes, is the kind of civic life that transpires when men and women gather face to face and, as a fan of old saloons put it, 'political matters ebb and flow free as froth on the beer.'"*

*Jon Grinspan, "The Saloon, America’s Forgotten Democratic Institution," New York Times, Nov 26, 2016. http://nyti.ms/2kpnDAN
