    I went to the first one in 1980, when I worked in the Loop--I don't recall how much it cost except it was much cheaper, you could try a bigger variety before you either filled up or ran out of tickets, and much of what was there was unique. Great lunchtime alternative to the ubiquitous Loop cookie-cutter Greek "coffee shop" luncheonettes. On the last day I remember I had a 25-cent ticket remaining, it was warm out, and one of the vendors didn't want to cart perishables back. So I got a flat of 12 containers of strawberry Yoplait (a brand and style new to Chicago, which had only Dannon at the time), put it in the office fridge, and drove it home after work. (But to this day I can't stand strawberry yogurt),

    Nowadays, I go only when my knees can take standing around for hours and there's a musical act I want to go see. You have to jockey for a table to put your food & drink down while you stand, nearly half the items are fast-food from well-known restaurants available across the area year-round; and there are those stupid tickets! You can't buy only as many as you want, because the booklets contain odd quantities that are too few or too many. I end up either forgoing something I'd really wanted, compromising and eating something I wasn't really craving, or having leftover scrip to languish in a drawer (not knowing if they'd be usable next year) or to give to strangers. Last time we went (to see the Chieftains), so few items appealed to us that we actually ended up at a real restaurant in Millennium Park with normal portions, tables & chairs, metal utensils, glasses and servers. And we spent no more than had we eaten the same quantity of food standing up, spilling stuff on our clothes and sweltering,

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS OF CHINATOWN: Meet Hilary Cheng DDS, owner of Dr. Hilary Cheng general dental practice. I met Hilary Cheng for the first time when I came in to interview him for this small business spotlight, but the man’s genuine warmth, sense of humor and charming ability to storytell, made me feel like I’ve known him for ages. “My seven siblings and I were raised working poor in Hong Kong. Growing up in Hong Kong during the 1960’s, a city that only had two universities for a population of 5 million people, meant there were slim pickings for those who would have the opportunity to go to college. If you weren’t a part of the crème de la crème, which my family certainly was not, you could rule out a college education, as well as a decent paying career. Knowing this, my parents offered me the single gift they could afford to give me: A one-way ticket to the United States after high school. With one suit case, one tote, one camera and one cassette recorder, on January 16th, 1970, I made my way across the ocean to this land of opportunity. I didn’t know a single person in the states, and I couldn’t afford the dorm at my Wisconsin university, so I found an old man who took me in and rented me a room for close to nothing. While I could read and write English decently, my comprehension and speaking ability were pathetic—hence the cassette recorder for lecture hall (thank God!). During the summer after my freshman year, I took a bus to New York to find work. The word on the street was that Manhattan was the place to be for a bustling city with good paying tips. I was able to land a job as a busboy, and quickly discovered my place was at the (way) bottom of the totem pole. I learned my biggest lesson in New York that summer—I no longer had any desire to study business in school. If getting my butt kicked as an immigrant busboy with limited English was a reflection of what my experience would be like trying to climb America’s corporate latter—I wanted nothing to do with it. By my second year of college I decided I wanted to be a dentist so I could have a more equitable sense of opportunity in pursuit of my career. In 1974 I graduated from undergrad, enrolled in UIC’s dental school, and the rest is tooth history.” -Hilary Cheng. Upon graduating dental school, Hilary was invited by a couple of his classmates to open a lucrative dental practice in the suburbs, but he declined over something he wrote on his dental school application years earlier: He vowed to serve his community as a practicing dentist—and this is exactly what he’s been doing for the past 40 years. If you ask me, I’d say he made a great return on his parent’s investment back in 1970. While young Hilary Chenge had close to zero dollars in his pocket when he first arrived in this country, he was rich in determination and discipline. Fast forward to today, he owns his own practice, and all three of his adult children are following in his footsteps. His son, William, (pictured below) is completing his residency as a root canal specialist; his daughter is graduating dental school next week, and his other daughter is a dental hygienist pursuing a Master’s in Dentistry. We couldn’t write a better ending to Hilary’s story, if we tried. Learn more about Dr. Cheng’s Chinatown practice and/or book your appt: 312.791.1829 – 2165 S.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    In my time attending Jane Addams High School I have learned how to be more self-sufficient and get on track with my education. All of my previous schools have been close enough but I was always late. At Jane Addams I know I have to wake up at an exact time every morning and have my things ready the night before. I never cared about being tardy at previous schools because there were no real repercussions, but JAHS does not tolerate being late. I really needed the structure that JAHS has offered me. The staff at Jane Addams is helpful and it was what I needed after often feeling that I was looked down at by previous staff at different schools.
