Brothers Osborne kick off their 2019 tour tonight at The Riv in Chicago, so it was fun to chat with TJ beforehand and catch up on life, the holidays, “The Christmas Miracle of East Nashville”, what he really thinks about #DryJanuary & much more >>>>>
I haven’t had spaghetti in YEARS (never grew up eating it), but by some strange twist, my son Roy LOVES it. I’ve been nibbling on his whenever he orders it out, and I’m starting to want it ALL THE TIME NOW!
For #NationalSpaghettiDay, I put together my favorite Italian spots across Chicagoland (do you have one to add?):
* Sapori Trattoria (Lincoln Park, loved this when we lived in the neighborhood!) * Posto 31 (La Grange Park, a fresh take on simple classics with killer cocktails!) * La Scarola (West Town, amazing red sauce!) * RPM Italian (River North) * Maggiano’s (Oak Brook / all over Chicagoland)
Always great to get a call from Brookfield Police Chief Jim Episcopo … his officers are raising money for St. Jude again this November (2nd year in a row!) through their #Movember challenge & he had a lot to share with us today >>>>>
Cody Whitehair from the Bears called me today to chat all about his favorite country star Luke Combs, the Bears’ #SaluteToService week, their efforts towards recognizing all the great work our veterans have done for our country, why the 30th annual Bears Coat Drive is so important at this time of year + much more >>>>
