Girl's Night: Back to Bikinis

It's that time again...time for sandals, flip-flops and, eventually, bikinis. If it isn't snowing, I mean. Join The Chopping Block, the small Lincoln Park culinary school at 1324 W. Webster Ave., for Girl's Night: Back to Bikinis. Come taste healthy, flavorful party treats like mango ceviche and sesame ginger salmon bites, and take some recipes home with you. Registration for the 7:00-9:30pm class is $50 and there is a 24 hour cancellation policy. Call 773-472-6700 or email info[at] for more information.
