Yes, indeed, it’s going to happen! With 7 residents ready to sing 15 songs, we’re pushing that GO button but extending the sign up deadline to noontime the day of. If you’re among the young-at-heart, do have another look at the dozens of karaoke-ready songs we’ve prepared just for you.
The idea for a Karaoke Evening came from one of our newer residents, Shalise Ayromloo, and she has graciously offered to emcee the evening! The Party Room setup will look a lot like our Movie Nights, audience seated facing the pull-down movie screen. The screen displays lyrics and our small but mighty loudspeakers play music accompaniments. As their turns come, our performers stand adjacent to the screen and sing directly to the audience. Most will want to read those lyrics from a small TV monitor set directly in front of them.
So, once more, are you an experienced karaoke singer .. or a newbie with the courage to sign on? If so, preview the songs still available via the link above. Then, by noontime the day of — so we have time to put all the songs in an agreeable order — email email@example.com the titles you’d like to lay claim to. We’ll confirm and keep you posted on last minute details.
As for the merely curious? Well, please plan to stop by to watch, listen, and clap madly in appreciation! That plus wine, beer, soft drinks, water and snacks will make it a fun evening for all.

The site is currently being cleared for the new development that is being built [...]
Wooden structure uncovered during demolition"I'm a long time fan and reader, just dropping a tip on an interesting bit of Argyle street history uncovered by the recent demo of Hoa Nam Grocery (1101 W Argyle).See the attached photos for a view of the exposed side of an older building that sits just next to the demoed structure. It looks pretty weathered, and given the brown stained wooden siding, I'd venture a guess it's from the late 1800s to early 1900s. An exterior window and door shows this used to be an uncovered side of the structure. There's also an exposed and [...]
A frustrated neighbor on Dayton writes in:"Would LOVE some help getting the Dayton Dumpstergate situation resolved, especially since Ald. Clay’s office doesn’t seem too interested.I first called on 10/30 and left a voicemail to find out what we should expect in terms of closures and restrictions when the no parking signs went up for emergency sewer work on the 4300 block of Dayton. Didn’t get a callback, nor did we have any advance warning that the street would made inaccessible to access the street for several days as of 10/31.As part of the work the city moved a private dumpster [...]
