New Restaurants, Commissioners and Comics
This week, a new barbecue restaurant opened, a new commissioner was appointed and a new comic debuted.
This week was a good one to own a video camera.
In our heaviest multimedia week since Highland Park Patch launched, we posted videos of everything from the city's newest barbecue restaurant to the Chamber of Commerce's centennial celebration. We also did a video profile of Alice Felice, the sole employee of the now-closed Ravinia Post Office.
Our most adorable video of the week focused on Carole Yuster's K9 Reading Buddies of the North Shore program, where kids improve their reading skills by reading to therapy dogs. Yep, dogs and kids in the same video. It's a must see.
In non-video news:
- The park district board is complete for the first time since September with the addition of attorney Scott Meyers.
- Ravinia's business district held it's first (and soon to be annual) holiday festival.
- Highland Park High School finished second at last weekend's statewide debate tournament.
- Residents and school board officials discussed test scores and budgets earlier this week at a District 112 meeting.
- Highland Park Patch debuted it's weekly comic. This week's focus? The Highland Park Theatre.
