I just got word of the grand opening of the Mayne Stage (formerly the former Morse Theater), 1328 W. Morse. On Thursday 6/3, "The Best is Yet to Come" an evening of cabaret featuring area resident Beckie Menzie, Tom Michael, Joan Curto, Paul Marinaro and Sue Conway will be the first of a series of Preview shows. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Show starts at 8:00 p.m.
Other upcoming preview shows include singer Jan James, psychic entertainer Ross Johnson, and blues artist Liz Mandville.

Mayne Stage opens officially on Thursday 6/17 with The Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Visit the box office or to order tickets online.
The casual Act One Cafe is NOW OPEN at 1330 W. Morse. I'm curious to check it out. The menu focuses on New American food with locally sourced ingredients. The bar features a wide selection of handcrafted beers, interesting wines and signature drinks. Weekend brunch buffet begins in early June.
Valet parking is available. Dinner is served from 5:00 until 10:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. To make a reservation, call 773-381-4550.
I hope this new business is a successful addition to the neighborhood.
