Big turnout at Spaghetti Dinner for food, music, and magic

Authored by: 

On March 28, more than 125 neighbors enjoyed a night of delicious food, great music, and laugh-out-loud magic at the annual SNA Spaghetti Dinner.  The dinner returned to the historic Cortelyou Commons on the DePaul University campus. This year's event was dedicated to Phil Piazza, former SNA Board Member, good friend, and staunch supporter of the neighborhood. Many members of Phil's family attended.

Pasta and salad were provided by Via Carducci — special thanks to Giovanni Scalzo.  The evening's entertainment was provided by acoustic rock band Whiskey Jezebel (which will be playing in Trebes Park on June 26) and the Amazing Bibek.  Jeff Bibek performed tabletop magic and his own brand of comedy as he roamed the room throughout the night.

Local businesses provided an abundance of prizes ranging from a hotel stay to dinners that were raffled to lucky winners.

Thanks to all who contributed, including McGee's Tavern & Grille, Derby Bar & Grill, the Arrogant Frog, and DePaul University, and thanks to all who joined in the fun.
