Good Evening, Everybody!
This week's Chicago Neighborhood News, courtesy of our Team Member Cathy Mallers, covers the Chicago Neighborhoods of Lakeview, Lincoln Park, The Loop, and Ravenswood, and the Chicago Suburb of Oak Park IL.

Sometimes we locals forget about the fabulous food finds we have in our own neighborhoods.
One such gem is Mia Francesca at 3311 N. Clark in the Lakeview neighborhood. This is the flagship location and the food is really worth the wait.

The weather is finally cooperating and with that comes one of our favorite offerings in Lincoln Park, Green City Market.
The market is open from 7am - PM on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting today. Located at the south end of Lincoln Park between Clark Street and Stockton Drive, the market will stay open through October 31st.
