Thanks to all who joined us last night for our first green Neighborhood Networking event!

Thanks go out to the following:

Make sure to visit Uncommon Ground again this summer for their Farmer Friday Farmer’s Market: every Friday from 4–8 pm, featuring Honky Tonk Happy hour and rooftop farm tours.

Windy City Explorers join Neighborhood Networking this month!

Attention urban explorers: this month, the group Windy City Explorers is joining us for Neighborhood Networking at Uncommon Ground in Edgewater.

The Windy City Explorers check out neighborhoods, restaurants, parks, historical sites and other notable Chicagoland locations as a group, encouraging you to see places that you would ordinarily not see. There is a nice synergy between our groups, with both of us having the similar mission of exploring Chicago neighborhoods, so we are thrilled to have them join us at Uncommon Ground!

One of our venue hosts featured on Channel 7 news!

Last month’s Neighborhood Networking host VOLO was featured on ABC 7 News last night. VOLO’s outdoor garden was featured in the Hungry Hound segment about the best outdoor dining spaces in Chicago.

Those of you who attended Neighborhood Networking last month will remember this fabulous garden that we were fortunate enough to enjoy as our networking space. Congrats to VOLO on this mention! Make sure to put VOLO on your list of al fresco dining destinations this summer.
