Lombard Art Scene


Look, I know there’s an ART scene out there in Lombard. There are some talented people living in here. Why don’t we hang out at The Corner House and art up this town?

I’m putting together this idea board. Where we can share ideas and make plans that could help the art scene and help make Lombard a more fun inspiring place to live.

If you’d like to contribute to the idea board. Just drop me a line! And I’ll add you to the the list!

Pump Up The Volume


One of the many times I was hanging out in Downtown I saw one of these traffic block-aids and it made me think.

You know Lombard has a pretty cool acronym for Village of Lombard (VOL).

You know what else Lombard has? A pretty cool place to have concerts.

Lombard already has movies in the park along with other events that include bands. Maybe Lombard could rebrand the concerts in the park as “Pump Up the Vol”

Seems like a fun thing to try and there’s lots of local bands around.

If you’d like to know more about what’s happening around town, you can download Lombard’s Activity guide right here.


Had a fun in downtown Lombard last night, hanging out with some friends at Bonton,  saw some hot rods at Lombard Cruise Nights and then some Gelato at The Corner House.  Oh and I bumped into Bill Mueller our Village President, he was kind enough to let me take a picture with him!

New Eats


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.

Looking forward to having a new place to eat in Downtown Lombard. So keep an eye out for the opening. Maybe I’ll see ya there!

Meet you on the Corner



The Corner House that is…

A new coffee shop opened up in town and I LOVE it and I don’t even drink coffee!

But I’ve grown fond of having a gathering place to meet others and hang out talking about the cool things that nerds talk about or just taking a few minutes and prepare for the the day.  The Corner House in Lombard is the perfect place to do just that.

I’ve heard plenty of people ordering crazy coffee drinks so I’m sure they can make just about anything.  Even if you’re not a coffee drinker they have a lot to choose from.  Like teas and smoothies which are pretty smooth.  Their White Hot Chocolate, perfect!

Lombard has long needed a place like this, they’ve come and gone and I hope The Corner House  is here to stay.  They picked a great location, just a few steps away from train at the corner of St. Charles and Park in downtown Lombard.   The Corner House has a Great atomosphere for hanging out enjoying a good drink or pastry.

The staff is fun and nice and they’re doing a great job of getting to know their new customers.

“The Show”

If they ask you to warm up the cookie do it! Warm cookies are always the best. When ordering tea ask for “The Show” it really forces you to sit back and enjoy your surroundings.  It comes with a little timer and a pot to watch the tea steep to perfection.  Plus they have a lot of different brews to choose from, I’m kind of stuck on the White Monkey now.  Maybe it’s just the name…

“The Atmosphere”

Mornings are quite there so be sure and stop in before you head into the office or just start your day.  This is a nice little gem that picked Lombard and the crew is very local.  There are interesting photos on the wall to check out which I hope turns into a rotating venue showcasing local artists (hint).  As the week ends they even bring in live entertainment.

Whatever your reason is to get a cup of coffee or your favorite drink you’ll like the effort they put into the decor the accommodations.   They’ve done a great job with the surroundings which adds to the much needed cozy place in Lombard.

If you’re ever in there on a Monday morning and you see me typing away at my computer just say hi. I might even buy you a drink.

Welcome to Lombard, Corner House!
