For eating lunch, dinner, or just a snack, you'll want to plan some time at the Sugar Plum Cafe, located in the Program Barn. If you'd like to take some special treats home with you, check out the Gingerbread House in the Interpretive Center for home-baked items and gourmet goodies.

Parking is free at this event and most areas, including restrooms and paths, are handicap-accessible. This event is jointly sponsored by The Grove Heritage Association and the Glenview Park District. If you'd like, you can learn more about The Grove and its 136-acre nature and historic site.

If you're unable to get all the shopping done you'd like, The Grove Holiday Store, located in the Kennicott House, will continue to sell handmade crafts and baked goods from November 23rd to December 23rd. Parking and admission to the store are both free! Hours are Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Marla:  This sounds like a fun event.  Just a nice way to while away the time... relaxing and doing something non-related to real estate... if there IS such a thing.  And, after the week we have just had... any way we can relax is good.

We all need a break now and then, and this is a good place to get it. Thanks for your comment.
