Maybe it's because we got an early gift when Ald. Shiller announced to Laura Washington that she wouldn't be running for reelection.
Or maybe we're just exhausted from trying to keep track of 22 aldermanic wannabes (12 in the 46th Ward, 5 in the 47th, and 5 in the 48th).
So we're going to leave it up to you to spread the news about how and where Uptowners can still spread some cheer and goodwill. This is what we know:
- Uptown's Secret Santa will be active with the gift cards and "Santa Boxes" for the needy on Wednesday. More details as they come from the North Pole.
- If you have extra wrapping paper and would like to donate it, you can bring it to Borders at Broadway and Racine. "We have a number of non-profit organizations scheduled to gift wrap through the remainder of the holidays, working solely for donations. I'm sure other gift wrapping paper would help them out."
