Jefferson Market and Cakery

Growing up on the Old West Side, I've been going to this establishment for years. As a kid, it was fondly known as Johnnies Market. A husband and wife ran the market for years and I was a patron for all things from jaw breakers to Strawberry Crush. Currently, the market is known as Jefferson Market and Cakery. It's a GREAT place and owner, Mary, is a joy to work with. Be sure to check them out when you're on the Old West Side.

German Park!

Tomorrow is the last German Park of the season...will you be there?  A2 Townies sure will!  We've been going for years - picture Laura in a stroller as a wee one enjoying the celebrations!  Flash forward 30 some years forward and she's still loving it!  Great food, good friends, the chicken dance, German dancers, and buckets of beer.  What more could you ask for?
