If free soup and bread is what it takes to get people to wake up and smell the horse pucky wafting about the city’s tax increment financing racket, so be it. Tonight the Hideout is hosting an encore edition of Martha Bayne’s Soup and Bread series, this one featuring some tough talk on TIFs with our own Ben Joravsky, 32nd Ward alderman Scott Waguespack, and Everyblock.com’s Daniel O’Neil. It’s moderated by Mark Bazer of the Interview Show.

Soup is by Martha, Celeste Dolan of Celestial Kitchens, and Swim Cafe.

It starts at six at the Hideout. Donations go to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
