Yes, he’s here on Saturday, December 18th from 1 – 3 pm, at, of all places, Oak Park’s own “Tasty Dog”!  What a fun way to grab a quick lunch, say hello to friends and neighbors, and find out what Santa orders on his hot dogs.  There are little presents for the kids, too.  So bring your cameras.  Then on Sunday, December 19th from 6 – 7 pm, you can find Santa at Fitzgeralds, 6615 Roosevelt Road in Berwyn.  It’s a Christmas party for all ages with entertainment by the Chicago Grandstand Big Band.  There’ll be plenty of music, photos with Santa, and treats for all.  For tickets visit or call 708-788-2118. Go to to sample this great band.
