November Happy Hour

Friday, November 7 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Local Oak,  409 North Zang Blvd.   

The last happy hour of the year will be this Friday (not Thursday) at The Local Oak, one of our 2014 Corporate Holiday Home Tour Sponsors. There is a parking lot behind the building at 8th and Zang.

This will be a great time to enjoy Winnetka Heights signature cocktails, catch up with your neighbors, plus get an early start on your holiday shopping.

Co-sponsor Brumley Gardens will have a variety of holiday decorations to buy, along with exclusive discount coupons just for Winnetka Heights residents. And if you’re thinking about buying a bike for yourself or someone you love this holiday season, Small Planet eBikes will have ones on-site that you can test drive.

Be sure to wear your favorite Thanksgiving or Christmas outfit. Prizes will be given away for the most festive holiday attire, so get creative!
