The Big Toy show is a Coming!


Hey there folks it’s been awhile and I took a break. Wanted to let you about a really cool thing coming up this week.  This weekend it’s the annual Chicago Toy and Game Fair!!! It’s this Saturday and Sunday November 21 and 22.  All the new toys for the upcoming holiday season AND lots of cool games as well.  BE sure to check it out! We’ve gone the last two years and my kids have had a really great time. Plus if your interested they have a STAR WARS LUNCH.  Hang with some storm trooper and get some vittles.  It’s a fun time if you can make it to Navy Pier this weekend.  Coming up are my top ten kindie music CD’s of the year.

Istvan at Fischman’s Rocking


Yesterday Fischman Liquors on Milwauke threw a huge party (450+) called Kegs for Kidneys with many, many breweries bringing great brews to drink. I hear it was a great time. Today they had a family event raising money for the National Kidney Foundation in the same space raising money for the same foundation called Jammin in the Lot.   Table games, spin art with 45th Ward Alderman Arenas and his wife Jill pedaling the art…Literally! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Giant Jenga, arts and crafts and all sorts of fun stuff… Oh yeah they had my buddy Istvan and His (very rocking) Imaginary Band. The family is big fans of the songs – Things I Like and Mama Said and we’d been wanting to see them live.  Did I mention 2 industrial bubble machines, balloons and kids jammin’ on the therimin?  That has to be one of the coolest things I’ve seen in show. The kids playing (the theremin) Jammin in the lotwere totally owning it!  Istvan and company were a great band to see and catching them at this event was a bonus. I shall do my best to bring the family next year. I hope the event was a great success because we certainly had a great time!
