An Evening of Beer, Music, and Food in Support of “Will’s Place,” A Cafe That Will Employ Special-Needs Adults!

I don’t know how they keep doing it, but they keep doing it, and I love ’em.

The Empty Pockets are an indie rock band made up of Josh, Erica, Adam and Nate, and they already do amazing things with their music, including TOPPING THE FREAKIN’ CHARTS. Their blues album Outside Spectrum hit #1 on the Billboard blues charts last year…but that’s not why we’re here.

We’re here because of what they are doing for Josh’s brother Will, and the entire suburban community of special needs adults.

Final touches are being made on Will’s Place, a sandwich cafe that will be opening sook in Skokie and will employ adults with disabilities. What a fantastic concept to bring to the northern burbs! Downtown Naperville has a similar concept in Chez Francois Poutinerie.

To help kickstart Will’s Place, the Empty Pockets are playing a concert TONIGHT at Sketchbook Brewing company at 6:00 p.m. Nab some tickets here!

If you live or work in the northern parts of our area, help this place out because you’ll be doing more than just help a business get started. You’ll be helping special needs adults have an opportunity to be empowered through employment and give them a place to learn and grow in independence.

Oh, and I have it on good authority the sandwiches will be yummy!
