The Stoop Goes to Pilsen

The Stoop is going to every neighborhood in Chicago over the next few years to introduce storytelling and celebrate their history, culture, and flavor.

Every show will feature longtime residents, business owners, activist, immigrants, artists that represent these neighborhoods. The first show is showcasing Cafe Catrina.

Cafe Catrina is home to all the artists and activists who were exiled when Casa Atzlan community center closed down a few years ago. This cafe is the embodiment of the love, creativity, latino culture, and community that is Pilsen. There will be food, music, and an art exhibit. After party celebration TBD.
