CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS - OAK PARK, LAKEVIEW, LOOP, OLD TOWN, NORWOOD PARK

OAK PARK

Oak Park Public Library (834 Lake St.) wants to let you know that they can provide valuable resources, connections and meeting space to assist your business. Who knew? More than books, the Library offers classes, conference space for presentations and staff/client meetings, access to free Wi-Fi, printers, fax, and copy machines, online databases that can connect you with community services for business planning and mentoring, and so much more. Come and meet Business Services Librarian Bridget Optholt on Monday 3/7 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm as she explains how to use ReferenceUSA to help you start, manage and grow your business. If you're interested but can't make the meeting time, then follow this link for Opthold's contact information and to learn how Oak Park Public Library can help Strengthen Your Business.

LAKEVIEW

More business planning help can be found thanks to the joint efforts of the Lakeview and Lincoln Park Chambers of Commerce if you have ever considered Financing Your Business with Equity Crowdfunding. If you're not already a member of either Chamber, follow the link above and purchase your $10 ticket for this panel meeting to learn about the new laws in place to gain more capital for your startup business by offering shareholder gains to family, friends and customers in exchange for their contributions to your company. This informative panel discussion will provide tips and options from six successful business insiders on Friday, 3/18, at 8:30am - 10:30am in the 2nd floor conference room of Northwestern Physician Group (1333 W. Belmont Ave.).

LOOP

The elegant Lockwood Restaurant & Bar in the lobby of the historic Palmer House Hilton hotel at 17 E. Monroe St. is bringing a new Happy Hour institution to kickoff the weekends with live entertainment. Every Thursday and Friday evening from 5:00pm - 7:30pm will feature musical acts in the stylings of jazz and soul reminiscent of The Palmer House's glory days when entertainment stars such as Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong, and Frank Sinatra used to perform there. Currently the sophisticated jazz band, The Willson/Washburn Trio, is filling the spot of house band.

OLD TOWN 

Get ready for Doodle Doughnuts opening Monday, 3/7. Their Facebook page (you'll have to log yourself in to view) has been updating its followers with a play-by-play of the establishment's development, from build-out to their colorful menu board. There will be more than just doughnuts to get hooked on as their posts reveal that they will serve Metropolis coffee, apple fritters, and varieties of thick-cut bacon! Smoky, Candied, and Honey Sriracha bacon to be exact. Be sure to swing by 1419 N. Wells St. next week for your formal introduction.

NORWOOD PARK

You wouldn't think it from looking out the window but the first day of Spring is just 2 weeks away on March 20th. Next weekend, Norwood Park will be getting you in the spirit of springtime with their Spring Arts & Crafts Fair on Saturday, 3/12, from 10:00am - 4:00pm at Resurrection College Prep High School (7500 W. Talcott Ave.). Over 150 craft displays and vendors will be on hand for you to browse and have lunch at this event that is free for children under 10 years old, only $2 admission for students and seniors, and $5 for general adult admission. Let's hope that the weather will be accommodating for this springtime event.
