Happy April 1! We know Women’s History Month technically ended yesterday, but we wanted to take a moment and acknowledge the three amazing women we had the chance to interview and share the stories of with you all the last three weeks on #AlwaysAndersonville : The Podcast.

📸 1: This week, the talented and dedicated Marisa Paolillo, chef and owner at Mango Pickle is featured on Ep134 talking about the restaurant’s current 21 Day of Thali supper series, her travels, and favorite comfort foods. Check out the direct link in our bio for the episode. This photo perfectly captures how we are recording these interviews via Zoom these days!

📸2: Episode133 featured Mia Sakai and husband Tim Hannifan, owners of Ándale Market - Mia has an incredible backstory and we are so lucky she chose to invest her time and talents in this community. Listen directly via Spotify, Apple Podcasts or on Podbean.

📸3: Stephanie Sinnott just celebrated the opening of Sandbox Baby Boutique this past week with a ribbon cutting celebration and was featured on Ep132 talking about why it’s so important to create a safe space for new parents. Listen directly via Spotify, Apple Podcasts or on Podbean.

It’s a great time to cozy up, catch up, and celebrate these amazing women-owned businesses! #avillepodcast #womenownedbusiness #andersonvillechicago #womenshistorymonth #mangopickle #andalemarket #sandboxbabyboutique

As Andersonville Restaurant Weeks come to an end (final orders close at 3PM today!), we wanted to thank our wonderful sponsors of the event: Tiffany Vondran - Pool Shark Broker, Orange Shoe Personal Fitness - Andersonville, and UnicornLife. Tiffany is a real estate broker with years of experience under her belt. With her highly rated client reviews and overall repertoire, there's no question she's the realtor for you. Orange Shoe is also one of Andersonville's gems. If you are looking to be motivated toward your fitness goals in a positive and safe environment, then look no further. UnicornLife is no exception; they commit to making your branding and marketing dreams a reality. With a combination of magic and love, owner Sean is driven to make your imagination tangible.

Though different in service, they are all a part of our Chamber Community. Our month long Andersonville Restaurant Weeks would not have been possible without the support of these great sponsors, our participating restaurants, and those who purchased locally! Thank you! #avilleeats #alwaysandersonvlle

“The ‘shop local’ capital of Chicago.”

Welcome to Andersonville. A neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, Andersonville is known for its Swedish roots, historic architecture, and bustling urban main street, Clark Street. When you arrive in Andersonville, you feel you have arrived someplace special. While our roots are Swedish, we are also recognized as the “shop local capital of Chicago,” supporting the largest network of local and independent businesses in the area. Home to one of Chicago’s largest LGBTQ+ populations, Andersonville is a community full of pride and a commitment to equality. Andersonville is for everyone.

We are also a neighborhood of stories. With over 375 businesses in the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce membership, we hope you discover a few of these stories by visiting Andersonville and meeting our business owners face-to-face. Each is unique, and each has a reason for loving this neighborhood.

Please visit our website at andersonville.org learn more about Andersonville’s history, request a copy of our free 2018-19 Neighborhood Guide, discover relevant Andersonville news articles, listen to #AlwaysAndersonville: The Podcast, find a place to stay while you’re here, learn about the Year of Chicago Theatre, and discover more about our businesses in the area.

Whether you are local, are exploring a new Chicago neighborhood, or are visiting from elsewhere nationally or internationally; welcome.

Hey neighbors - I live in Andersonville, and I'll be @ City Winery Chicago on Thur. May 20th with my "3 Martini Jeannie" show created via livestream during the pandemic. Now that in person/live music is coming back, would love the support - as a full-time musician, this pandemic has been devastating to the arts community... City Winery is doing it right, with limited seating, the staff is fully vaccinated and all wear masks; and, the tables are socially distanced (I was just a part of a concert there last night... and it felt very safe) Hope to see you on May 20th! For more info about the show/tickets: https://citywinery.com/chicago/jeannie-tanner-3-martini-jeannie-5-20-21.html
