CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – PORTAGE PARK, LAKEVIEW, LINCOLN SQUARE, WEST LOOP, NAPERVILLE
PORTAGE PARK

Chicago is home to one of the biggest Polish American communities in America. Earlier this month during the conversations about ward re-districting, Robert Groszek, an attorney, said, "We want to go to one Aldermanic office to take care of the needs of our community." Alderman Dick Mell sounded hopeful, "We're going to try to do the best we can. But the Polish community has moved (over time). Maybe (creating a Polish ward) is a possibility. We'll try."

LAKEVIEW

Don't fight the crowds at all those department stores and malls!  Be up close and personal with the jolly old elf himself at Flourish Studios!  He'll have time to laugh and talk with you and your little ones on Saturday, December 3rd, from 10:30am to 3:00pm.  This day includes Holiday Storytime with Ms. Debra followed by Santa ho, ho, hoing his way into the gallery. Santa will stay until the very last child has been spoken to.

LINCOLN SQUARE

The Northcenter Chamber of Commerce is holding a new holiday family event at Martyrs', 3855 N. Lincoln Ave., Jingle Bell Breakfast.  Martyr's will be serving a breakfast buffet and will have plenty of activities for the kids with holiday entertainment and crafts. PLUS, the kids can meet with Santa and have their picture taken with him. Tickets are $10 per person and seating is limited to 150 so get your tickets early.

WEST LOOP

Welcome to Slurping Turtle, a new mecca of noodles and cocktails, now open. Enjoy a massive bowl of egg noodles swimming in sea-salt broth and teeming with organic chicken and Asian veggies. This is from the chef behind Takashi in Bucktown. The room is bright and airy. Perch on the mezzanine level with your version of ScarJo and sip a Lost in Translation (Japanese whiskey, sweet vermouth and ginger syrup), then share bigeye tuna sashimi and split the anmitsu, it's sort of a Japanese ice cream sundae.

NAPERVILLE

Katie Reis had the idea to write a book and at the ripe old age of 17, she is a published author.  "Watching Over Me," landed on Amazon.com on July 23 and is also found in her high school's library. Reis says of the main character Zoe, "It becomes a story about her trials with her grandma and getting to understand her and loving her, despite the fact that she is rough on her choices."
