A Special Day for Cancer Survivors!

It was 2003, and I was watching television as I was pounding away the fat on my treadmill. Peter Greenberg, the' traveler guide' talked about a spa in California, where so many of their clients were diagnosed with cancer, they decided to offer a special spa day for the survivors. I looked at the T. V. and said, 'I can do that.' Now, in 2013, Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day is celebrated in all 50 states on the first Tuesday in June. This coming Tuesday, June 4th, all across the country, men, women, and children cancer survivors will be enjoying a special beauty service at one of the almost 1000 participating places of beauty.

Billy Dec Joins Late Night Talk Show: Talk Hard on May 31st to talk all things restaurants/entertainment and who knows what else!

I’ve always loved Late Night talk shows. Conan, Kimmel, and Leno have been in my living room so many times (albeit on T.V) that I feel like we’re best friends. That’s why I love Talk Hard; Chicago’s longest running late night live uncensored talk show. In the audience you get the full experience, and the opportunity to hang with the host, writers, and guests in the Lounge after the show. I’m April Cowgur, the Guest Liaison and Social Media team for Talk Hard and can give you the FULL scoop!

The Lookingglass Theatre Junior Board Welcomes you to The Madhatter Ball at Venue One

Ten years ago, I attended my first Madhatter’s Ball, and it was unlike anything I had ever experienced! Lights, music, fanfare, and hats galore! Not only is this annual event an incredible spectacle, but the people I have met over the years through Lookingglass have become lifelong friends. The theatre brings extraordinary plays to the people of Chicago, and consistently engages our diverse community through talk-backs, volunteering, and educational outreach. I hope you will join me in supporting this wonderful organization of remarkably talented and caring people who create beautiful art, educate Chicago youth, and throw awesome parties!
