Lennie's Restaurant & Brewpub, 1795 E. 10th St.
http://bloomingtonposoltega.wordpress.com

Come see Posoltega, Nicaragua! The Bloomington-Posoltega Committee of Sister Cities International has been supporting projects to feed the neediest children of the village a hot lunch each weekday for close to 26 years. The sister city committee also provides scholarships to Posoltegan college students so they can attend universities in nearby towns. The exhibit, featuring twenty-three photographs by photographer Debbi Conkle, focuses not only on scenes of typical village life in and around Posoltega, but also on the children and youth who benefit from the sister city programs. Come view the photographs while enjoying a delicious meal at Lennie’s Restaurant and Brewpub. The exhibit is up through the end of October. After 4:00pm on each Tuesday in October, present a “Helping Hand Certificate” while dining, and Lennie’s will donate 20% of your tab to the Bloomington Posoltega Sister City Committee. All proceeds from the sale of the photographs will also go to the committee. Learn more about our sister city and print a certificate at our website above.
