Thanks to all who attended Neighborhood Networking in Lincoln Park at the China Doll Guest House last night.

We had a great turnout of “regulars” and new attendees who met and mingled, while sampling locally-prepared appetizers and exploring a unique guest house in the heart of Lincoln Park.

A big ‘thank you’ to our gracious hosts, Jim and Yanan Haring from China Doll Guest House, as well as food sponsors Cafe 28, Illinois Nut and Candy, and personal chef Rachel Hytken. Thanks also go out to this month’s raffle prize donors Illinois Nut and Candy, TastyCMS, Urban Family Chiropractic, Lidia Varesco Design and Mercury Organizing Professionals.
