"175 Ways To Love Chicago" -- Ken Price

From the City's website:

The Palmer House Hilton Hotel is steeped in history: it first opened its doors in 1871 and has been in continuous operation ever since. That’s why we’ve asked Ken Price, Director of Public Relations and resident historian of the hotel, to share his 5 favorite ways to experience Chicago’s history.
  • Get “In A Sentimental Mood” As You Listen to Chicago’s Acclaimed Cabaret Singers. Chicago has long been known as a great town for the Blues — but it is also becoming a great town for cabaret music! Featuring classic tunes from the “The Great American Songbook”, cabaret is usually performed in New York bistros, but now you can find Chicago cabaret talent showcased at Davenport’s, Petterino’s and the Green Mill, among others. Hear the stylings of artists such as Joan Curto, Tom Michael, Becky Menzie, Shelley MacArthur, Spider Saloff and a whole host of homegrown performers, many of whom are getting national recognition. A wonderful organization known as Chicago Cabaret Professionals is heavily promoting this genre of music—and it’s becoming a great asset to tourism.
