this year's host locations

Each year, the Contest pairs neighborhood restaurants with retailers, showcasing all that the South Side has to offer. Attendees enjoy soups while exploring some of our neighborhood’s most unique shops and retailers. It’s a chance to get to know the South Side in a different light. Our diverse hosts range from florists to fitness centers, and all are eager to mingle with you. Check out this year’s host locations, and get ready for a warm and welcoming greeting!
