Again, thanks to all who attended the 3rd Annual 46 Ward Awards. I look forward to doing it again next year. As we work to improve the Awards for next year, we want to hear from you! Please let us know how we can improve next year's awards!"

We adore the Public Barber, but really hoped Jake's would win best window. Who hasn't benefited by the knowledge that "Only a rooster can get a better piece of chicken"? We learned it from Jake's.

*Uptown Update doesn't promote political fundraisers, but anyone can vote for the nominees. The money raised from attending the awards ceremony goes to Ald. Cappleman's campaign fund.
