Huge thank you to McCook for hosting the village Christmas party! Would have been nice to have it in Lyons, but there just isn’t a venue large enough in town to accommodate such a festive event. If PJ Klem’s steps up to the plate with a nice campaign donation, we’ll reconsider for 2022. Merry Christmas!!!

Sorry we’ve been away folks. The group was hacked. Not sure how they got in, but we suspect that Mike Lancaster character was involved. The Feb AND March Lyons Lions will be announced this week. Until then, enjoy this amazing video!!

If you grew up in the near-west Chicago suburbs in the 1990s, you might remember this arcade in Lyons. Stumbled onto this commercial going through old VHS ta...

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for! The Lyons Lion of the Month for January 2021! This was entirely unexpected- we got more messages than ever before! Dozens of Lyons Living devotees reached out to nominate fellow members for the award, but one individual popped up in more messages than anyone else. We were told that this person simply "IS Lyons!" and also that "he's a great guy to grab a beer with!" Congratulations to the Lyons Living Lion of the Month for January 2021- Steve Shepski! We're told Steve is a REAL Lyons Living member- a lifelong resident (unlike so many of the haters!) Steve supports local businesses whenever possible, whether he's hitting flyballs at Stella's batting cages, grabbing a delicious pizza from Waterworks, or tipping one back at a local watering hole!

Unfortunately, given the pandemic situation, we won't be able to have an actual "passing of the torch" from our 2020 winner to Mr. Shepski, but we are optimistic that things will improve by the end of the year and we'll be able to round up all the 2021 winners for a very special Lyons Living meet & greet! Stay safe out there folks! Lyons Living masks are currently in production to keep you safe out there!

01/05/2021

We already have LOTS of submissions for the next Lyons Lion of the month, but you have TWO MORE DAYS to stuff the ballot box! Just message us and we’ll keep rallying the votes until Wednesday at 7PM! The new Lyons Lion will be unveiled on Friday!

12/26/2020

Merry Christmas from all of us at Lyons Living!! We hope you all had a wonderful, socially distant holiday! We’re one week away from the announcement of the Lyons Lion of the month for January 2021!!

The long awaited Covid-19 vaccine is being shipped across the country!! We have sent a notice to the state of Illinois that the staff at Stella’s should get the Covid vaccine first. No one in this town is more essential than them!! #stellas #baseball #food #Lyons

Okay folks, you've been patiently waiting for the big December 1st announcement, and here it comes!  We at Lyons Living ...

Okay folks, you've been patiently waiting for the big December 1st announcement, and here it comes! We at Lyons Living have been hard at work since we launched this site waaaaay back in 2009 as 'Lyons, IL.' We were here BEFORE the village had a page! We were here before the 'other' Lyons Living, and we owe it all to your unwavering support. Okay, enough bragging- let's get to the news! Messages from our fans gave us the idea to create a very special award-the "Lyons Living Lion of the Month" award! Since we're starting this so late in the year, our first award winner is basically the Lyons Living Lion... of the year!!! Without further ado, lets get to the presentation...

So many of the messages we received mentioned this fine lady and we couldn't argue the fact that she's been a mainstay for years here at the real Lyons Living. She loves to get into witty banter with other members -and occasionally the admins 😉 She's Lyons to her very core. One of our staffers remembers her from back in the days of Grahovac's Tavern on Lawndale & 44th Pl! That's right, folks! Put your hands together for PATTIE GRAHOVAC-WISNESKI!!! The Lyons Living Lion of the year! Let's give her a nice big Lyons roar!!

A big announcement coming up on December 1st! Let’s get those 5 star reviews for this page rolling!

A big welcome to all the new friends we’ve made over the last week! We’re happy to have you become a part of the Lyons Living family!

11/20/2020

All righty folks, we’ve been hard at work since the Pandemic started working on a new and improved LYONS LIVING for YOU! To help us get things rolling, we really need you to do something for us. PLEASE take a minute and give us a review! So many of the haters gave us trashy 1 star reviews and they’re dragging us down! We need some 5 star reviews to move us up before we kick off the all new Lyons Living! Thanks friends!!

We didn’t think we had to say this, but stay away from Hoffmann Tower! We drove over there today and saw WAY too many people gathered along the riverfront. There were also far too many people gathered around the Dollar Tree and no one was practicing safe social distancing! Stay home, people!!!

12/23/2019

Ho, Ho, Ho!! It’s Christmastime again! We are planning to scale the Hoffmann Tower, hit some balls at Stella’s, grab some Waterworks pizza & cap Christmas Eve off with a relaxing cocktail at the upscale All Star lounge. What are some of your favorite Lyons Christmas traditions?

10/26/2019

Now that the smoke has cleared, all is well in the good Village of Lyons. Our mayor has not been implicated in any wrongdoing and village services continue to run at a perfect 10/10 for our residents. 3 cheers for Lyons!! Hip, hip.....

Sorry we've been away for a bit. All we can say now is... beware of the drones. Big Brother is watching. We've said too much

11/04/2017

We are so close to 800 likes! Tell all your friends! To celebrate, we’re considering a very special get-together for our many fun loving supporters! Let’s get this great page up to 900 and have ourselves a little party. Around the office, we’ve got a few ideas for a great Lyons shindig. Where do you folks think we should have our big Lyons Living bash?

One of our fine members is also a member of the ‘other ‘ Lyons Living. If you want to chat with racist hillfolk, go over there. This is currently posted on their site. Read the comments. Terrible use of English and outright racism. Stay classy, other Lyons Living! Look in the comments to see the lovely words a wonderful LL member.

The village of Lyons is very thankful this season for one main thing: we're not Berwyn.

Once the storms clear out, should be perfect fishing weather out by the Hofman Tower!
