CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – NORWOOD PARK, LAKEVIEW, WEST LOOP, GOLD COAST, NAPERVILLE

We at Dean's Team would like to send a thank you and special salute to all the troops who consistently fight for our freedoms as Americans.  Happy Veteran's Day.

NORWOOD PARK

Mark your calendars now for a special presentation by area historian Anne Lunde, titled "Digging Into the Past."  This presentation is free, requires no reservations and will be held on November 18 at 7pm at the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House, 5624 N. Newark Ave., Chicago.

In her presentation, Lunde illustrates how readily available resources--as well as more obscure ones--can be used to paint a picture of a community through maps, architecture, photographs and oral history. The program also includes a rare glimpse inside the walls of the Historical Society's own headquarters and oldest surviving home in Chicago, the Noble-Seymour-Crippen House.

LAKEVIEW

Do you like the taste of a really great gyro in the afternoon?  Lucky for us, Melanthios Greek Char House, a homey taverna which opened Monday for long nights of flaming cheese, Greek beer, and whole lamb and pigs spinning over an open fire.

Not all people enjoy the traditional Greek foods, even though this locale appears as part of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, so you can always order a 20-ounce porterhouse or 16-ounce bone-in ribeye.  Either way, it's a definite must-see new restaurant in Lakeview.

WEST LOOP

Starting this Thursday, you can see Collaboraction in full swing with their new world premiere of G.I.F.T.   You'll be taken on an interactive and immersive adventure through the act of gifting with the world.

Guests will explore the nature of gifts, community and culture on this journey through a sprawling warehouse compound an soundstage at Firehouse Square, 459 N. Wolcott, Chicago.  If you want to get discounted tickets, send an email to jeffrey@collaboraction.org with the subject line "GETOUT" and you'll get $5 off the suggested donation price.

GOLD COAST

Have you ever wanted to ask the creator how the fountain in Millennium Park was created or at least his inspiration?

This Wednesday night you have just the opportunity.  Spanish sculptor, Jaume Plensa, will discuss this work and his other internationally renowned projects from across the globe.  The lecture is free and will be held at the Rubloff Auditorium, The Art Institute of Chicago, 230 S. Columbus Dr. starting at 6:30 pm.

NAPERVILLE

The Naperville Sun is giving local residents a chance to celebrate your veteran on their site.  You submit a picture and story about him or her, which will then be published.

It's very easy to participate.  Go to their submission page.  Fill in your name, home town, email, phone number and story.  Your information will then be added to the photo gallery of all service men and women who are serving our country.

Let's support our troops in any way we can!
