    Tues Sept 24 is a FREE presentation about Belgium with a focus on travel by Paul Van Halteren, Belgium’s Honorary Consul to Chicago. Paul is so knowledgable and charming, this will be really fun. If you have ever considered going to Belgium, this will be an excellent opportunity top learn and ask questions. He can also arrange a 7-day all inclusive package trip and of course, brewery visits will be in the mix. Reserve a space RSVP at michael @ hopleaf.com, so we can plan. We’ll pour you a Belgian something to enjoy during the show-and-tell.
