Former Playboy Bunnies and Old Town: Is this the best neighborhood ever or what?

Chelsea Stevens

A young woman bent on world (and news) domination, I am currently an undergrad student at DePaul University majoring in journalism.

While perusing Metromix for events in Old Town, I was surprised to find out that Pamela Anderson will be appearing at Crobar on Saturday, March 6th. Granted Crobar is not technically in Old Town (seriously, where do you draw our neighborhood's borders Metromix???), I'm sure there are a lot of "Pam fans" in the neighborhood who would be willing to take the small trek over to N. Kingsbury Street to meet the former Playboy bunny and Baywatch babe.


Pamela Anderson will be making an appearance just outside of Old Town on Saturday!

If you can't catch a glimpse of Pam in the neighborhood this Saturday, not to fret: Old Town is the permanent residence of another former Playboy bunny: Candace Collins Jordan

The charismatic former model, actress, and fashion editor lives in Old Town with her husband, former ad executive, Chuck Jordan. "Candid Candace" (a nickname she uses on both her personal site and her ChicagoNow blog) is originally from St. Louis, but eventually made the move to Chicago... and into the original Playboy Mansion

After earning the title of the 1979 December Playmate and appearing on four Playboy covers, "Candid Candace" would originally settle down to live in the Gold Coast, but, in the years to come, would make the move to Old Town

Since Candace is involved in numerous philanthropic activities (to mention just a few: she sits on the development board of PAWS and the executive boards of Common Threads and the Joffrey Ballet), the community-oriented Old Town is a perfect fit for her. 

If two Playboy bunnies isn't enough to get you excited about this neighborhood, I don't know what is. Except, perhaps, this.
