Mingle with your Uptown neighbors

Uptown Association introduces monthly gathering

CARAG — The Uptown Association tonight launches a new monthly gathering that aims to bring neighborhood residents and business owners together.

Monday Night Mingle at Figlio, 3001 Hennepin Ave. S., is meant to be a regular but informal gathering of Uptown stakeholders, Uptown Association Executive Director Maude Lovelle said. Mingling begins 4 p.m. March 2 at the restaurant, and is scheduled for every first Monday of every month thereafter.

Lovelle said the Monday Night Mingle was more casual than some of the non-profit trade association’s other gatherings.

“It’s not a place where you come and set up a table and do a trade show,” she said. “… It’s just a drop-in, get to know people [event].”

No reservation is required for the event. Figlio will provide complimentary appetizers and desserts.
