With its low self-esteem and high urban blight, Hartford is the ultimate underdog city. Sad City Hartford documents the joys, sorrows and eccentricities of New England's Rising Star.

Support Heaven

You thought Hartford was already heaven? Not quite, but we're working on it. If you spend time in downtown on the weekends you'll know that the area is a popular place for skateboarders. While we have never even been able to figure out how to get those things to move forward while standing on them, we think it's a kewl idea to have a skate park in downtown. You can support the park and have a great time a January 27 Pasta Dinner and Bluegrass Concert to benefit the park for only $15. Details after the jump.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 2011, 6:00 PM
21 Charter Oak Ave, Hartford CT

Suggested donation is $15*

Awesome food will be courtesy of soup and noodle artist Brendan Mahoney, as well as Food Not Bombs.

Entertainment will include the musical stylings of Berkshire Bluegrass featuring Hartford Skateboarding Task Force, Knox Parks Executive Director and Bluegrass musician Ron Pitz.

The pasta dinner to benefit improvements to existing structures and the construction of a skatepark at New Ross, County Wexford Park (“Heaven”) in downtown Hartford.

If you are unable to attend, but still interested in making a contribution, tax-free contributions can be made via check made out to “Heaven in Hartford c/o Knox Parks Foundation” and sent to the Knox Parks Foundation, 75 Laurel Street, Hartford, CT 06106.

*No one will be turned away for a lack of funds, so please contribute what you’re comfortable with.

RSVP to Brendan Mahoney at oiseaux@gmail.com or 860 729 9603 if possible, so we know how much food to get. We hope to see you there.
