Rain can’t stop us…

A big thanks to everyone who came out to Neighborhood Networking on a very rainy Wednesday night. Despite the deluge of water, we had our best turnout ever (Neighborhood Networking supporters are real troopers!)

In addition to making business connections, event goers enjoyed a variety of appetizers and beers provided by our wonderful host, The Village Tap in Roscoe Village. Thanks go out to Mike, Juan and the rest of his staff—as well as to our volunteers and raffle donors. We couldn’t have done it without you.

See you next month in Avondale!

Featured Neighborhood: Roscoe Village

Have you been to Roscoe Village lately? A lot has changed over the years. Stroll down Roscoe Avenue and you’ll see old favorites like (my fave) vegetarian breakfast spot Victory’s Banner, along with newer additions, such as the women’s shoe boutique A Pied, wine shop Lush, and Zane & Zara’s Pet Boutique.

Arrive early for Neighborhood Networking on August 19th and take a walk down Roscoe Avenue to see what’s new. Or visit the Roscoe Village Chamber of Commerce to see a listing of shops and businesses to explore in Roscoe Village!
