Update Wednesday: The fundraiser has been postponed until Thursday and will now benefit the businesses affected by Wednesday morning’s explosion.
Earlier: Naked City Brewery, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N., is hosting an all-day fundraiser Wednesday for Taproot Theatre, on its 40th anniversary. All proceeds from the purchase of the specially brewed Taproot Pale Ale will go directly to Taproot’s emergency fund, which was depleted after the theater racked up huge legal bills from a lawsuit related to construction of its addition after the 2009 arson. Additional donations are welcome.
A second fundraiser for Taproot is set for 5-9 p.m. Sunday, also at Naked City, with a live and silent art auction. All proceeds go to Taproot.
