Gregory Gaymont

C and I embarked on another of our bike rides in Chicago last Saturday.  It was a glorious sunny day with barely any clouds. 


The photo at the top of this post is of Gregory Gaymont, artist and owner of Gregory Gaymont Studio & Gallery, 3948 N. Southport Ave.  (  Very nice selection of fine art, much of it by local artists.  Worth checking out.

During our ride we “discovered” a small neighborhood called West Graceland.  Beautiful homes and multifamily buildings on trees lined streets.  The real find was a tiny private community-managed park.  Last image below.

This is the view from Camila and Tito’s balcony.  It provides a good view of what the middle of a typical block looks like.  Outdoor space is treasured in Buenos Aires.

Plain Jane’s Aprons


We bought some very imaginative aprons at theMaifest in Jacksonport over Memorial Day weekend.  They’re the handiwork of local artisan Jane Penovich, above, who hand makes them and has the byline, “Plain Jane’s – Anything But Plain Aprons.”  She can be found at the various festivals around Door County.  Of, if you have an apron emergency, you can reach her at 920-559-6145.

As Carolyn and I biked by, she exclaimed “I just read about this in the Tribune!”  We had stumbled on gaztro-wagon (5973 N.Clark St., Chicago).  It doesn’t open until Wednesday, but owners Matt and Melina Maroni happily explained their concept and menu.  Actually, the concept extends beyond the restaurant.  Matt wants to put his food on trucks.  Read the Tribune article HERE
