In case you’ve missed the email that’s been circulating about this event, here are the details.

Von Steuben and Roosevelt High School grads are invited to Max and Benny’s Restaurant, 461 Waukegan Road in Northbrook, on Monday evening, September 30, for an evening of fun and reconnection with friends. The event starts at 5:00 p.m. and will last until the restaurant closes at 8:30 p.m.

Max and Benny’s will prepare some menu items that will bring back tasty memories of the old neighborhood. You’ll also have a chance to hear Myles (Mickey) Golde, author of Albany Park,  read from his book, which has fond reminiscences of the Terminal Movie Theater, Cooper & Cooper, Purity’s Delicatessen and Rudich’s Ice Cream Parlor.

I’m not involved in the planning of this event, but hope to see meet many of you longtime contributors there.

    Alan, I almost didn’t make it myself because of work. But I arrived around at 8 pm and had a chance to see some old friends and make some new ones. It was very well attended, so I’m sure there will be more.
