Get ready for Chill & Grills at the Co-op

I love this time of year…summer is in sight (though it feels more like November today) and lots of establishments in our twin cities are starting to spring back into action with favorite recurring events. 

Common Ground is bringing back Chill & Grills once a month during First Fridays in Urbana from June to October. Each will happen on “the porch” and will feature Stan Schutte from Triple S Farms at the grill, and a $5 meal with both meat and vegan offerings. 

Beer and wine will be available for purchase as well, and local musicians will provide live music. 

Here’s the food lineup for the series:
