Gossip Friday

Gossip Friday

There’s good news and bad news this week. Not a lot of bad news but yin and yang right? Almost the half way point of the summer and the Sox are playing well and the Cubs well are the Cubs. We can all enjoy this weekend at a number of Fests and no longer worry about the NBA free agency circus.

The Bad

Aldino’s closed after only 4 months! I think the location and construction were a big reason but sad I didn’t get over there before hand.

The Good

Stephanie Izard, Girl and the Goat, FINALLY opens. You may remember she won Top Chef in 2008. Now her and, fellow Chicago competitor that season, Dale Levitski chef of Sprout can battle where it counts.

I’m on the radio Saturday at 9:30am – WGN 720 AM. I admit this is shameless self-promotion!

Pick a festival – Old St. Pat’s, BenFest, Chicago Folks and Roots, Rock Around the Clock – beware the traffic logjam!

If you’re looking for respite from the heat – head to Black Dog Gelato, trust me!

Enjoy the weekend and be safe. I’ll have some fun posts for next week on the White Sox and Mercadito.
