Food & Drink / Grocer / Membership / City Market

The association will be hosting a neighborhood social/happy hour on Thursday, January 20th, 7:00p at Frankie's 710 Trattoria.  Drop in to have a drink and meal with friends and neighbors - everyone is welcome.  Board member Mike Sposato is organizing this fun chance to check out a new neighborhood restaurant.  Food and drink specials TBD.

Our westside neighbors in Wesley Heights, Seversville, and Biddleville-Smallwood are actively recruiting a full-size grocer to locate on West Trade Street.  They would like to know what Third Ward residents would prefer: Harris Teeter or Lowe's Foods?  E-mail with your feedback.

2011 membership in the Third Ward Neighborhood Association is now open!  Dues are a voluntary, inexpensive, and easy way to strengthen and promote Third Ward.  They remain $25 payable by check, or $27.50 online (a convenient invoice will be submitted to residents).  The association has an ambitious agenda for 2011.  Please consider contributing your support - and contact me with your questions.

Working groups for the proposed City Market are open for enrollment.  If you are interested in contributing, please contact

Third Ward's Facebook page syndicates the website and includes pictures and events too; "Like" it to add it to your own feed.

Have a great weekend!
