Thanks to everyone who came out and braved the elements to celebrate the 19th Annual Winter's Eve at Lincoln Square, especially our restaurants who stood their ground and spent a wet evening outside for the Lincoln Square BID's special neighborhood event. We appreciate that in spite of the weather, Lincoln Square's businesses and nonprofits, along with residents and visitors, came together to kick off the holiday season. The night was still full of family fun, talented performers, and great food. We hope everyone enjoyed Winter's Eve and likewise enjoys a happy holiday season.
