REMINDER: Our Holiday Meet-Up & Canned Food Drive

2009meetup.jpg It's getting colder and the first snowflakes of the season may fall later tonight so it's time to think about holiday parties. Including ours! It's been a while since we've done our reader meet-ups on a regular basis so we're excited to bring them back and meet all of you, the awesome readers who make this site fun and worthwhile. Ric Hess, Phil Kuhl and the fine folks at Sheffield's (3258 N. Sheffield, 773-281-4989) have graciously allowed us the use of their Beer School bar for the occasion. We're also using this as an opportunity to give back during the holidays, also making it a canned food drive benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository, which is seeing a greater demand for its services in this recession. So if you come, please bring a can or two of food along with you to donate.

Chicagoist Reader Meet-Up/Canned Food Drive, Thursday, December 10, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m., Sheffield's, 3258 N. Sheffield
