This Sunday, after Venetian Night (wait for Sue's post on that one), why not stay overnight to get a taste of the Tour de France Chicago-style?
The Chicago Criterium, a 1.1 mile bicycle race around Grant Park is sure to be exciting and thrilling for all to watch. There's going to be a jumbotron to watch all the action, entertainment, vendors and a Big Wheel race for the kids later in the day.
As you know, we here at Dean's Team are avid Cubs fans. When it comes to Wrigley, we love to know what's going on and anything new to the area.
We are happy to announce that MyWrigleyville.com is just the thing for you - a social network that is all Wrigley, all the time!!

I don't know about you, but I'm what you would call in some circles a "foodie." I like to try all sorts of different foods from different regions around the world, and don't get me started on the wine.
In an effort to help people taste foods and amazing wines from many of the famous chefs in the city, Vital Bridges is hosting Chefs and the City this Friday, July 24, at the Peninsula hotel. There's also going to be an after-party at RL Restaurant.
Chicago and suburbs like Oak Park are home to many historic landmarks. Unity Temple designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is one such landmark that has recently been placed on National Trust for Historic Preservation's 2009 List.
Unity Temple is an important cultural, architectural, historic and civic asset providing not only a congregational but also a public home for tours, educational programs and civic events. Some restoration has been done but there is an ongoing need for more to restore the structure back to Wright's original vision.
