Ruth’s Parkside Café will be hosting 2 events of special interest to Northsiders in September and October. All are invited to “An American Can Factory Reunion” on Sunday, September 27, between 3 and 5:00, for a reception that will include a brief history of the factory, photographs, music and clothing from the 1920s, (Thanks to Casablanca Vintage,) when the factory was built, and most importantly, stories from people about the building throughout it’s long history in our neighborhood. Many people only know of the building as it sat empty for years, but between the closing of American Can in 1961, and then Cleveland Manufacturing, there was a succession of other, smaller businesses, and the use of space by artists and bands. Ruth’s is looking for photographs and for anyone who has had connection with the building over the course of its history, to share stories and information. Ruth’s is not open on Sundays and will not be serving food, however, there will be refreshments and a cash bar available.
On Sunday, October 11 Ruth’s will celebrate its Second Anniversary by hosting a fundraising dinner for CAIN. This will be a ticketed event and seating is limited. At the time of printing details are still being worked out, but you can call Ruth’s at 513-542-RUTH (7884) for information, or by going to our website: ruthscafe.com
