Once More With Feeling: Our Holiday Meet-Up/Food Drive

By Marcus Gilmer in Arts & Entertainment on Dec 9, 2009 7:40PM

2009meetup.jpg We warned you we'd be bringing it with these reminders. We're a day away from our Holiday meet-up. 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 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 bag or two of food along with you to donate. Some of what the Food Depository needs the most of include: beans, chili, peanut butter, soup, canned veggies, cereal, pasta, rice, tuna, and canned fruits.

We know there are a few other parties/events going on that night and that it's going to be super cold, but we hope you'll at least stop by for a drink, say hi, and drop off a few cans of food. We're looking forward to meeting the readers of this site that make it worthwhile to keep at it, day after day, and have some fun while we're at it.

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