Roscoe Village sure knows how to have FUN!

For some of us, it was the first time going to Volo Restaurant and we were so pleasantly surprised. Their back patio felt like a retreat and the food of course was great.  The Roscoe Village has so many cool shoppes and restaurants in the area. One thing we noticed is how the chamber members are involved and interested in creating a great community for both the residences and small businesses.    We want to give a special thank Mary Markarian of the Roscoe Village Chamber and Jon Young of Volo restaurant, without their help this event would not be the success that it was.  We are looking forward to going to their events in July.  Check out the Burger Fest and their sidewalk sale.  Roscoe Village sure knows how to have FUN!

Last night’s NN event was a great success! No rain even though Volo had their tents set up in the patio just in case. The food was awesome. We got to meet lots of folks from the Roscoe Village Chamber too. Thanks to everyone that attended. If you didn’t meet our featured exhibitors here is an opportunity to get to know them.

Those businesses who participated are: Urban Family Chiropractic, Total Wellness Systems, Inc., Pearls & Cake and Rain Nutrition.
