Show: Johnny Rawls Revue “Vocalist and guitarist Johnny Rawls has an impressive deep-soul pedigree: he served as musical director for both O.V. Wright and Little Johnny Taylor, and in the 80s he worked the southern circuit on his own for several years,” writes David Whiteis. “His true gift, however, is his ability to leaven those influences with sparkling pop.”
Dinner: Cafecito “Prior to opening his South Loop Cuban-style cafe, Philip Ghantous was a frustrated actor-waiter with zero kitchen experience. So how the hell is it that this Lebanese-American from Peoria is now pressing the best damn Cuban sandwiches in the city?” writes Mike Sula.
