Next Chapter Bookshop in Mequon, WI presents a special event – “Eat, Pray, Love and get Committed” – an afternoon with author Elizabeth Gilbert on Sunday, February 13, 2011 from 12PM-4PM at Elite Sports Club in Mequon, WI - 11616 N. Port Washington Road. Attendees will EAT – cooking demonstrations and food samplings from some of the area’s top restaurants, PRAY – Yoga demonstrations and instruction, and LOVE –couple raffle prizes/silent auction.
