Uptown Needs Jamie Oliver

From Ald. Cappleman's latest newsletter:
"Jamie Oliver is a world renowned chef whose restaurant, Fifteen, helps at-risk youth by training them in the culinary arts. The newly created "Uptown Needs Jamie Oliver" task force wants to attract Jamie Oliver, and his restaurant, Fifteen, to the Uptown neighborhood in Chicago. We need this restaurant to help us inspire youth, train them in the culinary arts while providing Uptown with a world-class restaurant that will attract people to our historical neighborhood."
A group of residents are asking you to join their efforts. One simple way to start is to join their Facebook page: Uptown Needs Jamie Oliver."

  2. Wow, poor guy. He may need Uptown even more. The U.K. riots just destroyed his restaurant in Birmingham.
