On Friday May 13th, 6pm-11pm we will be hosting an event for the whole family with our Bike-In movie featuring Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster classic, E.T. On Saturday May 14th Hillcrest Brewing Company presents their Hillcrest Craft Beer Crawl from 2pm-6pm followed by a free concert under the stars at Re-imagine Normal Street from 6pm-10pm.
