This nerd went to the Ravenswood Mariano's Grand Opening today

My wife and I have been Ravenswood, Chicago residents for many years and involved in the many community meetings for the Sears parking lot development now know as Ravenswood Station.  I've also had a little fun in the "social medias" surrounding the hype around the largest Mariano's anticipated opening.  Well, I couldn't help myself... I went to the opening day.

In all seriousness, the Mariano's and LA Fitness development really has knocked it out of the park.  It's a large, tangible component of the amazing development in greater Ravenswood, Lincoln Square along West Lawrence Avenue and beyond.  Residents are really ecstatic.  We've already enjoyed the quality of life and value of the neighborhood.  The new development and infrastructure improvements have put the neighborhood over the top.

It was a blast running into neighbors, checking out the goods and eating tons of free samples. The location is stellar.  The Ravenswood Station retail anchor sits diagonal to the re-developed Ravenswood Metra Station (Union Pacific North)
