Chicago – Jan 12 2006

We’re starting off the new year with a brand new venue that we’re super excited about- People Spanish Tapas and World Music Lounge!

People just opened for business and is already creating alot of buzz in the artsy Wicker Park neighborhood. Owner Baris Yuksel (who also happens to be a EuroCircle member!) left the corporate world to realize his dream of opening a cool yet comfortable restaurant/lounge with a strong European vibe- and he has done a great job!

In addition to Spanish tapas, People features over 20 varieties of beer from all over the world, as well as a great selection of wine and home-made red and white wine Sangria.

But here’s the best part- EuroCircle Chicago is hosting a private dinner event at People- which means we have the whole place to ourselves to sample some great food (with a special discounted menu just for us)and including specials on beer and Sangria! People also has these awesome, long, communal tables that are perfect for meeting new friends- as well as sharing a pitcher of Sangria or two…

Since this will be a smaller event due to capacity limitations, it is absolutely required that guests RSVP at if you would like to attend. Please only RSVP if you definitely plan on attending, and please let us know if you must cancel for any reason.

$10 admission
