ANDERSONVILLE — North Siders can show support for a local elementary school the best way Chicagoans know how: Eating food and drinking beer.

Hopleaf bar, just south of Foster Avenue on Clark Street, is hosting a "Friends of Peirce" day May 1 with a goal of raising $20,000 for neighboring Peirce Elementary School.

Except for tips and tax, 100 percent of the proceeds throughout the day go to the school.

Open from noon-2 a.m. (with food being served until 10 p.m.), the special event requires no RSVPs or tickets — but will feature a food, drink, and wine menu in addition to the pub's regular full bar.

"You are bound to find a familiar face from Andersonville, Edgewater, or Peirce that day," organizers wrote in a flier for the event. "This is a crucial time for our school as budget cuts loom going into next year."

Hopleaf is at 5148 N. Clark St.
