"You've Caught the NET!"


Chicago Neighborhood News - November 20, 2009

Good Evening from Chicago, folks!

In this week's edition of Chicago Neighborhood News, our Team Member Cathy Mallers covers the Chicago Neighborhoods of Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Old Town, and The West Loop, as well as the Chicago Suburb of Naperville IL.

Any special holiday plans, parties, or events you would like Dean's Team to help you publicize?  Let us know - we'll gladly help spread the word.  Our Team offers the Number One Related Active Rain Blog in the City of Chicago.


You know, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.  Why not enjoy it with the best accoutrement, bacon.

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, a new "breakfast/lunch/brunch temple" opens at 3210 N. Lincoln Ave.  The name of this soon to be nefarious locale, Bakin' & Eggs.  And this place is all about the bacon.  They have a bacon flight, so you can sample applewood-smoked, cured and jalapeño bacon in one fell swoop.


Southport Corridor continues to be one of the places to shop and dine in the Lakeview neighborhood.  Festivities run from 5-8 pm.

This Thursday store front Holiday lights will be turning on at 6pm.  Come join the festivities sponsored by the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce.  You'll enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks, listen to strolling musicians, discover unique gift ideas for friends and family, and much more!


Cook County Hospital is a mainstay in the community in the Southwest Loop area and has been the talk of the town recently.

Jones Lang LaSalle discussed a report with the Cook County board's construction committee to convert the empty location into offices yesterday morning.  While office space may be inexpensive, the least expensive would be converting the building to a dorm.  There's more to the report and discussion here.


You've Gotta Get It, Pro Patio, and Garrett Popcorn will be raising money for Child CauseTM this Thursday, November 19th.

As the holiday giving season starts to kick off, you can head over to Spoon Bar located at 1240 N. Wells Street from 6-9pm.  Your donation of $25 gets you three hours of domestic beer bottles, well cocktails and wine.

The Child Cause mission is to support kids around the world affected by AIDS, unsafe drinking water and homelessness.


David Carlson was an antique dealer and owner of Nook and Cranny on south Vincennes in Chicago. For years, David's business also occupied booth #63 at the Antiques on Jefferson Mall in Naperville.

When David died last year, his daughter, Emily, moved the contents of the seven storage lockers to her workplace loft at 2010 W. Fulton where she is hosting an Antiques Estate Sale starting this Friday through Sunday from 8am to 3pm each day.  The inventory is vast and varied.
