    Hi- I was just looking at Henry Brockman's Facebook page, and there was an obituary for Harriet Friedlander who started the Evanston farmer's market in 1975. Apparently it was one of the early markets in the Chicago area. I moved here in 1981, and it was definitely busy then. The obituary also said she started North Shore Village too in 2008, which is now called WiseUp. Here is the link to her obituary.

    I am sorry to announce the passing of Dennis Ray Wheaton, the former food critic at Chicago Magazine (until 2009), this past weekend. Dennis was a Sociology Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and collaborated with Glenn Carroll on several scholarly articles about authenticity. He would attend sociology conferences over the years. I found him the most important food critic in Chicago in his heyday. He was respected by sociologists who loved restaurants. He was twice a nominee for the JBF award for best restaurant critic.

    Let us hope that the restaurants in heaven have indoor dining.

    This one is from 2010 but I thought his food connection was interesting, in additional to all that he did for Chinese Americans.
