What we're about

Ladies 40 and up from north-west Chicago neighborhoods like Jefferson Park, Portage Park, Albany Park, Mayfair, Lincoln Square, North Park, Sauganash, Old Irving, Irving Park, or North Center, listen up! Do you want to explore the restaurants, bars, fests and other community events in your neighborhood with other local women?

This group is designed to foster friendships between women from the NW neighborhoods while appreciating and supporting our local neighborhoods. Whether we’re checking out the latest hot-spot or trying out the corner hole-in-the-wall that’s known to have some homemade specialties, this will be a great way to expand our networks while exploring our neighborhoods. I try to keep the groups small so they're not overwhelming and you can actually get to know other people. So far, it seems to be working!

Instead going all the way to Wicker Park or the West Loop, let’s make our north-west ‘hoods the destination!

Basic etiquette for the group:

It’s great when you RSVP to attend an event, but please don’t forget to remove yourself if you are unable to attend as it’s not fair to wait-listed members or the other attendees. If a pattern is noticed of changing your RSVP to "NO" less than 24 hours before the start time, you will be removed from the group.

No shows will be removed from the group.

Note that because of last minute cancellations, I "close" RSVP's the day before the event. This means if you were next on the wait list, it will NOT automatically RSVP you as "going" on the day before the event. Instead, if there is a last-minute opening, I'll put out an email to everyone on the wait list and offer the slot on a first-come-first-serve basis.

I've been trying to wear the same purse to each meet-up so that it's easier to find me. I've included an image of the purse.
