Divisions 12 and 1 are having dinner on Thursday night at TK's Urban Tavern. Known for its "casual dining, serious food," TK's is a locally owned small business that is committed to supporting local farms.  Its menu features a variety of quality dishes served in a casual atmosphere.  

TK's is located just a short 0.6 mile walk from our hotel, at the east end of Kierland Commons.  We are taking over the whole restaurant for this event, so there will be plenty of opportunities to catch up with friends, both old and new.  We hope you can join us for what promises to be a wonderful event.
