Cinco de Mayo - Friday May 5th, 2006

Click stamp for map

Cinco de Mayo, a festive event encouraging the surrounding community to party all night. Our specialty is Mexican food and drink, and our Taco Tuesday was just voted #1 in Cleveland. * This Friday * is the date, so join us for a taco starting at 5PM.

Music - of course music! Confirmed bookings include The Deacon (Eugene, OR), Brian Combs (Boulder, CO) and Cleveland's own Tim Askin (O' Canada). Kevin McCarthy may also join this billing on the main stage of the 2nd Floor President's Ballroom, and no doubt additional musicians may 'throw down' the ROCK! Please do not feed the musicians tacos, they only need bread.

Local DJs and Maria-chi will circulate with Mexican flair.

* Attendance is free for all ages. Security and escorts provided at entry/exit for public safety. *

Diverse cultures in the surrounding community will unite, getting the word to the streets literally overnight, reaching thosands or perhaps more.

Yes ladies: Mardi-Gras beads and fancy external/internal lighting to complete the mood, with no strings and no catches. Just come and get your party on at Sachsenheim, and don't you delay. Matter of fact, if you make the men work for it, we'll give you something for nothing.

Please bring your friends, and an appetite for freakin' delicious Mexican food and drinks, dirt cheap. Public transportation and taxi service available for responsible drinkers who may party safely all the way home, sleeping off the Mexicali Blues and having their friend, mom, or girlfriend drive them back to pick up their car the next day. Free soda/juice for Designated Drivers, and their moms.

SACHSENHEIM
7001 DENISON AVENUE
CLEVELAND, OH 44102
(216) 651-0888

http://www.myspace.com/sachsenheimball


THE SACHSENHEIM WAS erected, some one hundred and
eleven years ago, on the auspicious ridge of Denison
Avenue, overlooking the city of Cleveland, by the
Alliance of Transylvanian Saxons.

A massive three-story multi-purpose event facility,
complete with hardwood-floored ballroom, dining hall,
three commercial kitchens, a tavern, and a fenced-in
Biergarten, the Sachsenheim incorporated many design
elements which were also implemented, to a lesser
degree, by the architects of such similar structures
as the present-day Beachland Ballroom and the Pit
Cleveland.

The Sachsenheim has played host to decades of
concerts, assemblies, weddings, funerals, choral
rehearsals, and heaven knows what other events, yet
cloaked by the veil of history, including a lively
span during the Prohibition era when the Sachsenheim
operated as a state-of-the-art speakeasy, ostensibly
impervious to the prosecutorial tendencies of one
Eliot Ness.

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, however, the
membership of the Alliance was aging, and the
operational demands of the mammoth edifice proved
to be too great. So the Saxons turned over building operations, including its
licensed tavern, to someone they knew would also be
considerate of their continued, however diminished,
uses of the structure: a gentleman by the name of
Scott Lindell, better known around town by his
tongue-in-cheek nickname, “Grumpy.”

Grumpy had for years operated a beloved neighborhood
eatery out of Tremont that bore his name and featured
his numerous inventive and lovingly-prepared
appetizers and entrees. In 2000, he took over a West
Side bar, which he dubbed “Terrapin Station” as an
homage to those premier proponents of American musical
traditions, the Grateful Dead. The club became a live
music hotspot, though some good things cannot last.
Grumpy closed the doors on Terrapin in mid-2002.

Fast-forward to 2006. Having worked indefatigably to
ready the building for full-fledged operations, it’s
time for a community-wide event to get the word out
and introduce people to this unassuming little gem of
a venue that has sat almost unnoticed at a major
industrial crossroads, in the heart of town, for
decades. The ample floor space in the Sachsenheim
makes for an ideal art gallery. And, given Grumpy’s
rich history of patronage to musicians of all stripes,
the music for this event would include some of the
finest practitioners of American and World traditions
which our town has to offer like none other: Blues.
Jazz. Bluegrass. Reggae. Afrobeat. And of course,
that good old Rock ‘n’ Roll...

Carlos Jones & the PLUS Band. Mifune. Sultans of
Bing. Xe La. Kevin McCarthy. JP and the Chatfield

Smiley Baldazar. modQuad. The Caribou Foot. Echo

more…
