National Night Out in NoMi!

Post, second, and third photos by the Hawthorne Hawkman. First photo contributed.

Tonight marks National Night Out, a great time to celebrate our community and meet new and old neighbors. After the jump is a list of all the officially registered NNO events in NoMi, although it should be noted that there are plenty of other informal gatherings happening tonight as well. If you're going to try and make it to multiple festivities, I recommend bringing a friend who can push you around in a wheelbarrow, because the food our neighbors offer is that good.

Here's where you can find NNO gatherings in NoMi...

...The list is grouped by neighborhood, then the location, number of people, activities and time.

Thanks for the info. I'm really hoping that I feel well enough to hit up a couple of the Near North block parties tonight!

Thanks for posting these. It's great to see so many blocks getting out across the Northside.

Patrick said...

I hit 12 of these! Great people out tonight. To bad that thug got shot on his national night out on 26th and Penn.

Good and timely info, Jeff. A job well done, and thank you.

Thanks for posting that info Jeff. Boy am I stuffed! I think I ate 8 hot dogs.

Trolls like hot dogs? Good to know, maybe a troll trap is in the works.
