I grill, therefore I am.

The Chillinâ€™ and Grillinâ€™ continues as more barbecues entered my calendar this past week.
Itâ€™s been nice to go out and meet new people while being cooked for by manly men (even when the women start the grill, the men have a way to gravitate toward it).
On Wednesday the Network of Entrepreneurial Women met in Hyde Park with their loved ones to enjoy a lovely evening of grilling and chatting.

Unfortunately the much anticipated parakeets were shy and we could not spot them.
Instead, we later observed fireflies twinkle across the park.
Patriotic pink, white and blue starryÂ s’mores sweetened the mild disappointment of not meeting the feathered friends.
Our next NEW event will be from 2 to 4 pm onÂ July 25th at 57th Street BooksÂ in Hyde Park. I look forward to discussing our favorite books for business, pleasure, and from childhood.
In a different Hyde Park, on a separate continent, Mr. Darcy was recently spotted emerging from the waters.

Grilling takes the formality out of entertaining.
Everyone wants to get involved.
