October 29, 2014


Halloween Hoopla saw record numbers this year thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, families, and friends who came out this past Sunday! We enjoyed a beautiful day with hayrides, face painters, arts and crafts, costumed characters, great entertainment shows, and lots more!

Many thanks to our sponsors:


ABC7 spotlighted Brazailian Bowl on October 25th in their Eyewitness News.

Taken from the video:
"Brazilian Bowl is more than just a little quick-serve, fast food joint; it's a portal to some serious home cooking, from the limited number of grocery items to the recipes that were lifted straight from someone's mom.

"It's basically homemade Brazilian food," said owner Tony Ferreira. "We have pan de quejo - which is the Brazilian cheese bread - we have fried plantains, we have Brazilian bowls, which is one of our main items." "

Survey Finds Pride Parade Should Stay in Lakeview

By: Erica Demarest

"Lakeview residents don't think the Pride Parade should move Downtown — at least according to a survey conducted by Ald. Tom Tunney's (44th) office.

The alderman asked ward residents last month to complete an online survey on the future of the LGBT parade, which drew more than a million people to Boystown this year. Roughly 3,400 people participated. Fifty-five percent said they wanted the historic celebration to stay put."

DryHop Brewers to Debut Its Oyster Beer

By: Erica Demarest

"DryHop Brewers will debut its first in-house "Brewer & Chef" collaboration this week: an oyster stout made with fresh West Coast oysters and crushed shells.

"It's an obscure, but traditional English-style beer," executive chef Joel Pillar said. "What we're trying to get is more of the brininess out of the oysters than the actual oyster flavor itself."

Pillar partnered with head brewer Brant Dubovick to craft the strong (6.7 percent alcohol by volume) stout, aptly named Oysterhead."
