Another great reason to attend tonight…

As if connecting with fellow business owners wasn’t incentive enough to attend Neighborhood Networking at Smokin’ Woody’s tonight: we’ll have great food and raffle prizes!

We’ll be giving away prizes from nearby businesses such as Deadwax Records, Pam Puskala and Red Eyes Coffee, as well as Integrative Therapeutic Massage, Send Out Cards and Microsoft Small Business Local. Remember to drop your business card when you stop in and stick around until 7 pm for the drawing!

Smokin’ Woody’s will be preparing a Mini Pork Sandwich with sides. And for the vegetarians, a Sweet Potato & Salad plate. (they will also be open for takeout orders after the event)

See you tonight!
