Please join NOSH for a night of networking, socializing and good ole fashion fun. NOSH will be hosting a happy hour on Thursday May 26th from 6-8pm. We will be located in the Ramen Alley on the 1st floor.
Moto-I has been kind enough to run a deal on a drink called “The Problem Solver.” This lovely cocktail costs $8 and for each "Problem Solver" purchased a dollar comes back to Open Arms, so they can help solve the problem of providing people in our community who are ill with the nutritious (and delicious) food they need.
Join us - and bring a friend!

Give & Take is a new kind of public program that uncovers hidden connections in our community with a mix of eclectic presentations, games, and socializing.
The concept is simple: when we come together to share what we know, and what we want to know in a fun, supportive environment, great things will happen. The presentations at Give & Take are drawn from the public, and the topics are based largely on what people submit on this site.
Give & Take is developed by Works Progress in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
