The holidays are behind us, but there’s still fun to be had. Below are two popular events returning this weekend:
Come in out of the cold this Sunday to the warmth and friendliness of the Glenwood Sunday Winter Market!
The Glenwood Sunday Winter Market is a foodie market specializing in locally grown (and organically grown when possible) produce and foods. Shopping at the Glenwood Sunday Winter Market is a great way to support our neighborhood economy. The Glenwood Sunday Market was voted the most popular farmers’ market in Illinois, and is continuing this winter as an indoor market the second Sunday of every month.
The Market will continue to accept Master Card and Visa and is extending its Market for All matching fund program for Link/SNAP guests.
I’ll see you at the Market this Sunday!
My popular “Follow Me on Friday” series returns from the holidays this Friday, January 8th, 5-7 p.m., with a visit to a neighborhood institution–Hamilton’s Bar & Grill, 6341 N. Broadway (just south of Devon). When Loyola University is in session, this is a popular student hang-out. But when the students are on break (such as now), it’s a great opportunity to relax in a laid-back atmosphere, take in the newly renovated surroundings and enjoy some of Hamilton’s signature wings compliments of the management. In addition to the wings and other appetizers, Hamilton’s will be offering a free glass of wine or beer to folks who follow me on Facebook or bring a copy of this e-mail.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
