A New Blog to Keep an Eye On

Breaking news on the Old Town Blogger front (I bet you didn't even know there was an Old Town Blogger front, let alone breaking news items): Shirley Baugher, noted Old Town historian and author of such Old Town specific books as

"A Taste of our Old Town: The Art of Food"

"Our Old Town: The History of a Neighborhood"

"At Home in Our Old Town: Every House Has a Story"

has started an Old Town blog at Chicagonow. You can read Shirley's "My Kind of Old Town" here. Also, all the books mentioned above are available through the Old Town Triangle Association, here. In her first regular post, Shirley highlights the upcoming 'Sounds of Music' show at the Midwestern Buddhist Temple (located at the 435 W. Menomonee):

"...TV has Glee, Old Town has Sounds of Music, four amazing choral groups from the Lincoln Park High School (Timothy Cooper, Director); Abraham Lincoln Elementary School (Eric Brummit, Director); Franklin Fine Arts Academy (Anne Gray Director); and the Sounds of Sweetness from Walter Payton College Prep High School (Jeff Weaver, Director) performing live on Sunday, April 25, at 2:00 p.m. at the Midwest Buddhist Temple, 435 W. Menomonee Street."

Welcome to the blogosphere (which has little to do with "Rod" Blagojevich, honestly)
