Re: “Gossip Wolf: Pure Joy wants to give Chicago a venue that's welcoming to everyone

Thanks for making sure we got this right, Jes. Avondale/Roscoe Village is it is! The mistake was all on me! I've lived in Chicago for almost 20 years, and I still get my neighborhoods confused. I can usually remember that I live in Ukrainian Village...or is that Humboldt Park? Hmmm.
