HEADLINES

Spend New Year's Eve in Lakeview East!
You won't need to leave the neighborhood for great entertainment, food, and drink options on New Year's Eve. From fantastic dining and catering options to festive spots to ring in the New Year,  Lakeview East has it all. 

SHOP LOCAL FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Remember to shop local for all your gift giving, holiday party supplies and for your everyday needs! Shopping local doesn't only help out a small business owner, but it also helps the entire local community. Out of every $100 spent at a local business, 73% remains in the neighborhood. When you shop at non-locally owned stores, only 43% of the money stays local!
