 I was reminded again last night why Wilmette is such a wonderful place to live.  I had dinner with my daughter at Nick's Neighborhood Bar & Grill and the streets in downtown Wilmette were packed.  There are so many restaurants there - good restaurants - that it's a destination for Winnetka, Kenilworth, and other nearby residents.Added to that, Wilmette real estate is still strong and it's a number one place to live whether you're looking for a single family home or a condo/townhouse.  Here's what's happening now in the Kenilworth Gardens area of Wilmette home inventory and sales:Currently for sale:  14 homesLow price:  $659,000High price:  $1,350,000Under contract or pending: 4 homesSold year-to-date:  32 homesLow price:  $474,500High price:  $1,450,000Median price:  $735,000The absorp...

So grab the kids and hop on over for some eggs-citement at Thornwood Park this Saturday morning, April 7, at 9:45 (the hunt will start at 10:00). The Come Home North Shore team is hosting our 2nd annual Thornwood Park Egg Hunt for kids 10 and under. It looks like we’ll have good weather for it. The forecast is for partly sunny skies and 65 degrees. Be sure and bring your camera to take pictures with the Easter Bunny. And don’t forget to bring a basket for collecting your eggs. We’ll have prizes for the kids and a drawing for the parents. Who: Kids 10 and under (but don't worry, we're not going to card your child!)

Local dads (and one mom) who play in rock bands (for fun). It was a big hit that first year and has increased in popularity ever since. The concert is held on a Sunday afternoon and famili...
