First off I'm jealous you're moving downtown. A little dream of mine to enjoy a great city. You'll have a blast!

Secondly, I know you mentioned package deal. Should you decide to break things up, I'd be interested in a few things.

Good luck!!!!

If I can be nosy, what area of the city?

Forgot to mention, I'm up on North Shore area and can pop over if you still stuff

UPDATE: The Spring Avenue Starlight lives on...and the money is going full circle, the dad who bought it works for an local appliance store where we just bought our new washer & dryer. The circle of life!

cecilb ==> We are heading to Old Town...probably because of the hippie karma

Dennis, you made my day!

The link you posted mentioned my uncles bar on North Ave, Sonny's, where I did cash many of checks most of which cleared. Sonny always said I know where you live so don't try it.

Tradesmen, writers, politicians, hookers, plumbers,
Tv execs, bums and doctors were your basic pot pourri

And Uncle Sonny held court the nights he was there.

He had several places in the area, the saddle club on north clark before Sandburg Village took over and the moved it to North Avenue right near Ale house where they had a few bands on occasion and Belushi and the boys would stumble in

The place had an eclectic crowd, a much grittier gathering than  a cheers

My kind of place , pure Chicago.

If we ever collide I have enough stories to deplete any bar down to its last Guinness.

My Irish immigrant grand parents had a brownstone on 1400 block of Dearborn

Oh, the stories.
