    It was Great! :) Haven't worked with such a great group of team oriented people in a long time. The Northside Grille had good food. I enjoyed eating on the patio. Most of all, I enjoyed my conversations with new friends. Thanks Guys! :)

    Change of plans, won't be able to make it tonight after all. :( An important job-related appointment came up at the last minute, but I'll definitely try to make it to the next Food Bank event.
