You will find several places to eat along Division street west of Ashland. Smoke Daddy is about 1800 West Division. On the cheap side, if you want a hot dog joint that has what I regard as the best Italian sausage in Chicago, drive north on Ashland a short distance for Choppers. Get the sausage with hot giardiniera. Shakes are good, too.

This show is just wonderful - a great introduction to The House in their new residence at the Chopin Theater. Dave DaVinci Saves the Universe has a lot of heart, a lot of innovation, and in the end it is really a love story with a lot of awesome...continued

We loved it! It was fast-paced and so creative. The acting was superb. Too bad it was closing night, I would recommend it to all my friends.

Description

Written by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen, directed by Nathan Allen, and presented by The House Theatre of Chicago.

The writers of The Sparrow have gone back in time to re-imagine the most daring story they have ever told. Dave DaVinci Saves the Universe tells the story of the world’s most famous scientist working against the clock to invent the only thing that can save his daughter’s life and his marriage; a time machine.

The House Theatre of Chicago shares a completely fresh version of an original favorite with new characters, sharper dialogue, a new design, more heartfelt comedy, and tighter twists than ever before. This giant leap forward in the life of an unpredictable, smart and amusing story of timeless love in the face of tragic loss is not to be missed!
