Briefly: Cloister Construction, Fire Light, Horns-a-tootin

  • If you happen to be in the West Loop, swing by Old Saint Patrick’s Church, where the scaffolding is down and the facade is up on its new cloister.
  • Also up are the Christmas lights on one of Chicago’s most loved firehouses: The 109-year-old Fire Station 98 at 202 East Chicago Avenue (see picture below).  This place rocks for photos in the snow.
  • Point of interest:  We have 805 fans on Facebook.  But in the last month, those fans have shared our stories with 10,586 other people on Facebook.  Social media, indeed.
