CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS - October 30, 2009

Will this rain in Chicago ever stop?  Quite gloomy, and quite depressing!

Here's our Team Member Cathy Mallers latest update on Chicago Neighborhood News.  This week, she covers the Chicago Neighborhoods of Lakeview, Lincoln Park, The South Loop, and Lincoln Square, as well as the Chicago Suburb of Naperville IL.

Got something going on in any Chicago Neighborhood you would like us to publicize for you or your group?  Let us know - we'll help get the word out!

Dean's Team offers the Number One Rated Active Rain Blog in the City of Chicago!

LAKEVIEW

Plan ahead this time because it's sure to sell out.  Dos Equis is hosting "The Most Interesting Show in the World," on November 6 at the Park West.

Earlier this year, they hosted a party at the Museum of Science and Industry.  Now they are looking to outdo themselves again with another great lineup.  Expected to attend are burlesque singer Melody Sweets, contortionist Mei Ling, a human Slinky, The World's Most Dangerous Comic Mark Faje, Butterscotch, also known as The Human Beat-Box, and the crossbow tango duo Mr. and Mrs. G.

Stay thirsty my friends!

LINCOLN PARK

Like Pottery Barn?  Do you have Pottery Barn kids?  Guess what?

PB Teen just opened a new location at 2111 N. Clybourn Ave.   Before you could only get their products online or through catalog.  Chicago has now joined the ranks of Atlanta and New York as the only other city (thought to be final city) to shop for PBteen.

SOUTH LOOP

Start rubbing elbows with Chicago sports team members.

This evening at The Shrine, you can meet Jerry Azumah, Tyrus Thomas and many more athletes scheduled to attend this reception, concert and raffle for Athletes Across Borders.  The event is scheduled for 6 - 10 p.m. Tickets range from $25-$100, with the VIP level offering access to an exclusive meet and greet with the players.

LINCOLN SQUARE

With this crazy fall weather, now is the time to invest in a good pair of boots not to mention some great walking shoes.

Locals from Lincoln Square just love The Dressing Room and now, they can enjoy The Dressing Room Shoes located just down the street.  Showcasing affordable and upscale, the selection is not to be missed.  Be sure to check out the "looks for less" suggestions.

NAPERVILLE

So much is happening in Naperville over the next couple days, we had to share it all with you here.  First, this evening North Central College ensembles present the annual Choral Invitational at 7:30 p.m. in Went Concert Hall at the Fine Arts Center.

Thursday you can North Central College will host the screening of the film "Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars."  Also on Thursday Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson, authors of "Peter & the Sword of Mercy," will speak at 7 p.m. at Anderson's Bookshop.

Saturday enjoy a 30-minute horse-drawn hayride through the prairies and woodlands of Dandy Forest Preserve, and learn about the features of this historic preserve from noon to 3:45 p.m. at Danada Equestrian Center.
