Friday Night Feature:
Art & Wine Stroll

by Ryan Anderes

Next Friday evening July 31st, the LaSalle Business Association will be hosting an event downtown called "Peek Into LaSalle" which allows people to stroll the downtown while enjoying art and wine! As a participating business, the Uptown will be hosting the work of artist Jeremy Johnson.

Other participating businesses will also have an artist in residence to display their artwork for you to see or to just take a look around their store.  So tour the rest of downtown; stroll with a nice glass of wine; and stop into other local businesses.  You might just discover a new place to shop, to have your hair done, or to even get a massage!

You will also be able to tour some of the downtown condos! All of this as you listen to live music and enjoy a glass of wine. The wine tasting portion of the event takes place in the LaSalle State Bank parking lot.

This event should be another fun night in our downtown!  Why not make a night of it and stop for dinner or dessert with us as part of your "peek" into what our friendly little neighborhood has to offer!

Peek into LaSalle
Friday, July 31 from 4 to 8pm

Tickets $15 in advance; $20 at the event.
First 100 tickets purchased receive a special commemorative wine glass.

Tickets are available at Rudy’s Liquors, Lock 16, Music Suite 408 and Uniforms, Etc. Proceeds will benefit the LaSalle Business Association and North Central Illinois ART Works.

Downtown LaSalle continues to grow on a monthly basis as many storefronts are being filled with retail or service operations. As the downtown continues to grow, the events that take place downtown continue to grow as well.  Many holiday events and parades take place here each year, as does the annual Jazz N' the Streets festival and the BBQ n' Blues event hosted by the LaSalle Business Association (LBA).

Just what is LBA? It's a group of business owners within the city limits of LaSalle who volunteer their time to bring the resources of the business community together to benefit everyone. As a non-profit organization, they work collaboratively with city government, other business organizations and civic organizations to find beneficial and positive solutions to create a growing and encouraging business environment.

By continuing to come up with ideas and new events to host, not only the downtown, but also the rest of LaSalle has a leadership group that promises to lead future businesses into a growing and prosperous future. None of which would be continued without your support. 

We look forward to seeing you on the 31st!
