Our current venue is The Family Dining Room at The Lodge. The fixed price lunch for non-residents is $11.40. The menu is varied and the food is good.
All topics and genres are open within the limits of good taste. (A former member defined "good taste" as anything you would not mind letting your 18-year-old granddaughter read knowing you wrote it!) Pieces longer than 2500 words should be broken up and a brief synopsis provided at the beginning of second and later segments.

People Who Live Above Stores It's two in the morning and people who live above stores have sprung from their beds this cold winter night. They're leaning out of their windows and bellowing into the street at the deaf baker who launched the alarm in the Rogers Park Donut Shoppe. It's been ringing for hours and the police haven't come. Not even the firemen. The donuts will never get done and it appears now that people who live above stores will remain in a rage leaning out of their windows waving cigarettes like strobes and bellowing the rest of the night.

Lifts Her Like A Chalice The weekday Mass at 6 a.m. brings the old folks out from bungalows around the church. They move like caterpillars down sidewalks, some with canes, some on walkers. Father Doyle says the Mass and then goes back to the rectory to care for his mother who cannot move or speak because of a stroke. And every Sunday at noon when the church is full, Father Doyle, in full vestments, wheels his mother in a lump down the middle aisle and lifts her like a chalice and places her in the front pew before he ascends to the altar. Sometimes at night, when his mother's asleep, Father Doyle comes back to the Church and rehearses in the dark three hymns she long ago asked him to sing at her funeral. He practices the hymns because the doctor said she could go at any time. When that time comes, he doesn't want to miss a note. The last thing she ever said was "Son, I'll be listening."
