The Dill Pickle Co-Op, as they're calling it, would be the neighborhood's first member-owned grocery store. A benefit for the project is scheduled to begin 8:30 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Empty Bottle at 1035 N. Western. The line-up includes Willie P. Jenkins and Tirra Lirra Ala. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
