Meet your Eastlake neighbors at ECC’s Fall Gathering Dec. 9 at Louisa’s

It’s fall (almost winter) and time to gather once again with friends and neighbors at Louisa’s Cafe Bakery.

The Eastlake Community Council and Louisa’s are sponsoring their second annual Fall Gathering at Louisa’s, 7-10 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 9. Last year’s event packed the restaurant with Eastlake neighbors meeting old friends and making new ones. (Check out our coverage of the 2009 event here.)

Like last year, Louisa’s owner Alcena Plum is putting out a selection of seasonal appetizers on the house. There will be $5 glasses of wine all evening. You’ll also be able to order food and beverages off Louisa’s menu (but you’ll have to pay for those items).

Mary Hansen, Eastlake’s poster artist extraordinaire, has done the honors again this year (see the attached photo). She’s also helping to organize the event.

“This is an opportunity to meet new neighbors and business owners in the neighborhood,” she says. “Last year was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to celebrating ourselves again this year.”

Eastlake Ave. will be there to take pictures for the blog. Hope to see you there!
