Ravenswood to Host Casino Night

The Ravenswood Community Council, Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce and Alderman Gene Schulter's office will sponsor a casino night at 2014 W Belle Plaine Avenue this Thursday night March 19th from 6:00PM to 10:00PM. The $50.00-$65.00 dollar tickets include food, beverages and funny money to play with. There are great prizes to win... sports tickets, restaurant packages and more.

I think this is a great idea. The Chamber has been hosting some excellent networking events that offer informative speakers and opportunities to grow in the neighborhood. However, this is a terrific event for the residents particularly. I know many who like gaming and this is a less risky venture for sure. It's a good way to mix with our senior residents as well. All ages can compete at the card table!

Hi, you might want to check to see if this is actually going on as I just looked on the alderman's website and it says it is canceled in the events section.

Also, do you know of anything that is happening with the Sears Parking Lot at 1824 W Lawrence. A member of our condo assoc got a letter saying there would be a meeting at Mcpherson school on Tuesday 24th at 7pm. Couldn't find any details on the internet though...

Thanks for blogging, and keep up the good work!

Thanks for the comment!

I'm a member of the Chamber in Ravenswood and just received a thank you this morning from their director for the blog post... no mention of any issues.

I will have a post and some links up later today about the Sears parking lot. Their are plans for a multi-use retail development with parking deck. They want to put a grocery store there... how cool is that!? My wife and I have been dying for a market we could easily walk to.

I'll have some links up later today and will be going to the meeting. Hope to see you there!

Speaking of public meetings, I just received an email from the Lincoln Square chamber that there is a public hearing about the proposed Currency Exchange (Lincoln and Lawrence avenues) tomorrow night at the library. I thought the Currency Exchange was a done deal, but I guess there has been some backlash.
