On November 23, Billy's Lounge in Eastown will host a fundraiser that will benefit the newly remodeled Hub parking lot located between Lake Drive and Wealthy Street.

An ugly sweater contest will take place, and pints of Sam Adams Winter Lager will be on sale for $3.

Performances include:

  • Youz Guyz
  • Otis Blueswell JR
  • Head
  • Moto

There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door.

The Eastown Community Association (ECA) along with Eastown Business Association (EBA) have organized the event. It is the final fundraiser after years of many, such as golf outings and the recent hot dog eating competition at Street Fair. The proceeds will go towards payment of the newly remodeled parking lot.

The Hub lot has been re-landscaped to include flowers and trees, an irrigation system, a bench, and bike loop. Updated water and electrical will make food trucks accessible and provide more space for bands to play.

Event starts at 7 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door.
