Who doesn't love cookies, or art, or talking parrots, or cool hidden alley shops? On Wednesday night, Yelp North Shore Elites got their baking skills on and came out to explore Evanston's favorite alleyway and home to the longstanding Alley Gallery. Shop owners and artists Ross and Darren welcomed everyone into their special space and put together a lovely spread of wine and light bites. The night was filled with great stories about the shop's history, and Jessica the talking parrot was on her best chilled behaviour. Guests were treated to discounted shopping opportunities and cookie sharing with friends. You can check out the reviews here and photos by Edelyn Ellwood right here.
