Where The Heck Is North Mayfair? Cider & Sliders Fest To Put 'Hood On Map

Though a number of details are still to be determined, Cider and Sliders will be held Sept. 3-4, centered at Lawrence and Elston avenues. The suggested admission donation will be $5.

    Where The Heck Is North Mayfair? Cider & Sliders Fest To Put 'Hood On Map
    NORTH MAYFAIR - Chicago has 77 official community areas plus scores of unofficial neighborhoods. To borrow an analogy from the movies, some are blockbusters - Lincoln Park and Lakeview are like the "Batman v. Superman" of Chicago - and some are art-house indies. The people of North Mayfair get this.
