BA bus tour logo

bbq ribs 11:00 AM until...

Garfield Park - directly off the
Green Line El Stop at
Lake Street and Central Park


Menu: Ribs and Wings + Side Dishes  $10 per adult plate, families welcome.

Child's plate: hotdog, chips and pop (for donation)


Delivery is available on the westside for orders of $20 or more. You can also order plates to be picked up at Revolution Books at 1:00 PM. 


To place orders

Call BA Everywhere-Chicago at 312-860-8167. Tell them if you will be coming to Garfield Park, or want delivery, or will be getting your plate at Revolution Books.
 If you do not pre-order, call 312-860-8167 before coming to the barbeque to make sure plates are still available.  



Sell tickets for plates to friends, spread the word, or volunteer at Garfield Park. Call coordinator at 312-860-8167.
Our goal is to raise at least $800 from selling plates, and also to raise additional funds through donations from people who see the importance of this effort to help the BAsics Bus Tour take its message to people like us in California, the Deep South, and now New York City.


Barbeque is part of the campaign to raise big bucks for
BA Everywhere... Imagine the Difference It Could Make!

Funds raised at Garfield Park Barbeque will go to supporting the BAsics Bus Tour.  This barbeque fundraiser is inspired by BAsics 1:13 quote:

"No more generations of our youth, here and all over the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed who have been condemned to an early death or a lifetime of misery and brutality who the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say NO MORE of that."
-Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

Save Revolution Books 
July 21-22    Sat Noon-7 pm    Sun Noon-5pm

This weekend is a crucial time to raise funds for BOTH the BAsics Bus Tour and for Revolution Books. The BAsics Bus Tour needs to raise $28,000 over the next 2 weeks and Westside residents are organizing the Garfield Park barbeque to help meet this need. Also, Revolution Books needs to raise hundreds of dollars at our used book sale in order to stay open. Everyone can contribute to these projects in some way. 
  • Order plates for you and friends. (Remember-you can pick up your plates at Garfield Park OR Revolution Books.)
  • Volunteer at RB Sat. or Sun. and help run the book sale and sell BBQ plates. Call 773.489.0930. 
  • Contribute used books for the book sale. Bring by or call 773.489.0930.  
  • Donate online now at basicsbustour or Chicago Revolution Books blog.
  • Just come over, eat and buy books! (Don't forget to pre-order plates.)
Garfield Park is only 3.5 miles away from RB, yet light years away in social distance from the neighborhoods where many RB customers live. The Westside residents organizing the BBQ benefit were inspired by Bob Avakian's BAsics quote 1:13 - "No more generations of our youth..." (above). RB is also dedicated and working to make that "No more generations..." declaration real.
