Thank you to everyone who attended the Kirkwood Business Owner's Association Holiday Mixer on Tuesday December 15th at the Pullman. With so much going on in this busy season, it was a wonderful evening of community conversations and getting to know one another.
Everyone enjoyed the generous food donations from Kirkwood businesses and drink on KBOA. Thank you to Urban Pie for the tasty bread sticks and marinara sauce, The Spotted Trotter for the incredible pate, Kirkyard for the yummy wings, Elmyriachi for the delicious enchiladas and biscuits and to Dulce Vegan for the delectable cake.
Next year will even be better, so save the date: Tuesday December 20, 2016.
