This week, we helped host Richard Steele celebrate his 75th birthday.
For the celebration, we were joined by music icons:
• Mavis Staples
• Gene Chandler
Plus, after everything that the City of Chicago has been through this year, we thought we’d do Chicago a favor and suggest a few resolutions for the City.
For that discussion, we were joined by:
• Ben Joravsky, reporter with the Chicago Reader
• Monroe Anderson, veteran journalist and commentator
• John W. Fountain, columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times
And, finally, Stephanie Hart of Brown Sugar Bakery joined us (cake in tow) to talk about building a sweet empire from the ground up.
