Maybe we can get a group together and paint the town red, literally! We could meet at various places around town like The Corner House and sketch, doodle or paint the details that make this town great.
Other artists call these events Sketch Crawls. There’s also an art movement going on called Urban Sketching.
We could even end up at Carlson’s and stock up on supplies. We could make a book, postcards, cups or even t-shirts to help promote Lombard. I wonder if any merchants would be up for hosting gallery screenings?
You in? Drop me a line!
If you haven’t picked up any steaks at Shannon’s lately you might have might have missed the new sign in the window two doors down.

In February the local Dairy Queen opens back up again in Lombard, IL. Now I know it should stay open all year round because most Lombardians would stand out there in 2 feet of snow to get their ice cream fix.
But they don’t. Come the middle November it’s all over and we have to wait.
But the wait is over and I can make my way down here on Sunday nights and get my wife’s usual and my Blizzard even in the middle of a blizzard. The line wasn’t long tonight but give it a few more weeks. It always takes a little bit of time for everyone to remember.
THE DAIRY QUEEN IS OPEN!
If you have a question about wine all you need to do is ask Visal Kheam and he can give you a recommendation for any occasion.
20West has seen a lot of changes over the years and by far the best have been in the last two. When Visal came to Lombard to build a business he also wanted to give back to the community, and he does. With his expertise, not only as wine connoisseur but wanting to help causes that are important to his customers and his community.
If you haven’t been in the store in a while you owe it to yourself to see the changes he’s made. The improvements and atmosphere really lend themselves to exploring the vast selection of wines and beers he offers. If you’re not sure what you looking for just ask him or the employees, and they’ll point you in the right direction. Or just keep on the look out for his wine tasting events. There you’ll get the chance to try some wine and learn something about the bottle you’ll choose.
