Hey, folks!

Another late night in Chicago, hitting the Blogging Trail!

Here's this week's edition of Chicago Neighborhood News, from our Team Member Cathy Mallers.  This week, Cathy covers the Chicago Neighborhoods of Norwood Park, Lincoln Park, The South Loop, and Old Town, as well as the Western Chicago Suburb of Oak Park IL.

There's still quite a bit of Summertime left in Chicago!  Have you a special event you would like us to publicize for you over the Internet?  Please let us know!

Dean's Team offers the Number One Rated Active Rain Blog in Chicago, and across Cook County IL!

NORWOOD PARK

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor, would you be mine, could you be mine?  Won't you be my neighbor?  Ahh, childhood suburban memories...

This is the type of hometown feel you get while still being in Chicago when you live in Norwood Park and Jefferson Park.  With affordable real estate and education choices abundant, it makes sense that people are moving to this "slice of suburbia in the city."

LINCOLN PARK

With the Green Music Fest this weekend, we started checking out other carbon-friendly bashes that might be happening here in Chicago.

Carbon Day is a time when all of us look at our carbon footprint and see what we can do to make it smaller.  The kick off event leading up to Carbon Day (September 15) will be held next week on August 20th at District Bar, 170 W. Ontario.

Proceeds from this event will benefit Lincoln Park's Carbon Day Festival.  To learn more, click here.

THE SOUTH LOOP

When crafting the perfect adult beverage, why not ask the pros?  Thankfully, we have the opportunity to experience many classes throughout the city.

Of particular note, Whole Foods in the South Loop at 1101 S. Canal will be featuring Erik Withers.  Withers will be showcasing light and summer beers for your enjoyment.

OLD TOWN

Since we're enjoying a beverage, what a great time to get some yummy eats to enjoy with our libations.

Old Town Brasserie recently opened its Brasserie's Market next door to the delight of many neighborhood fans.  If you don't have the time to have a sit-down meal, you can at least take pleasure in tasting their faire on the run.

OAK PARK

Local resident Angelo Petitti Sr. was a true scholar when it came to 19th century history books.  Upon his return from World War II, Mr. Petitti brought home the book bug from a college professor he met while stationed in Belgium.

He was known for his ability to appraise American history books in collectors' circles and his most prized book was an extremely rare 1812 account of treatises between Native Americans and the US Government.
