Restaurant Reviews

Division Street meets Highwood

Most Chicagoans know that if they desire Puerto Rican cuisine, Division Street is where they should head. Once you drive between the metal flags flying over that street, west of Western Avenue and east of California, you are in what is termed “Little Puerto Rico”. But do [Read More]


“Honky Tonk Angels”

Attending one of the musical shows at No Exit Café, that little treasure on Glenwood where Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre makes musicals exciting and affordable, is always a treat. Whether they take on a full- scale musical, bringing it down in size to a cabaret style, or a musical that is more songs [Read More]

“The Rosenkranz Mysteries”

Highly Recommended **** The Doctor is in! At least until Christmas (December 24th), at The Royal George Cabaret on North Halsted Street.

“Die Fledermaus” Reviewed by Carol Moore notes by Al Bresloff

“Doo Wop Rhapsody” Special visit to Munster

Music is to many of us the key to who we are. Over the years, tastes change, not just in volume, but type of music and sound. Way back when, let’s say the 1960’s, I was into the sounds of pop music- Elvis, The Beatles and typical “Rock ‘n Roll”.  Towards the middle of [Read More]
