What do you love about your neighborhood?

Solid, established residential neighborhood with beautiful old homes. Close proximity to downtown. Walking distance to multiple modes of public transportation (airport and downtown). Dog friendly. Good friends and neighbors.

Favorite neighborhood restaurants

C-Manny's (for margaritas - my fav) , La Villa (excellent pizza and I am a pretty hard core Chicago deep dish / Lou Malnati's fan), Smoque (so delicious I am convinced it's laced with something), Bread and Wine (fancy dining in the hood), Sabatino's (so retro it's hip and Sat nite piano is a blast), McNamaras (breakfast is the best, but requires a risky run across Irv Park rd.), #1 Chop Suey (once a week dinner, a block away, good grub, nice people).

Favorite neighborhood businesses

Law Office of Bartley F Goldberg, City News, Dr. Cesar L. Lau (eye doctor), Dan Ray - State Farm Agent.

Community interests

I am on the Board / Secretary of the Old Irving Park Association .

The beginning of this video talks about show...should be very interesting.
