Manny P. here… league of gurdians

   The afternoon after our Westminster Lanes / Forgotten Hollywood Documentary fundraising event, Laurie (my wife) and I are headed for a whirl-wind ten days in Chicago. We have a lot planned, culminating with a special dinner in Wisconsin honoring Moose International, Inc. members (including me) for contributions made to Moose Charities in 2012. I’ll document our trip via the Forgotten Hollywood blog.

~ A visit to MOOSEHEART CHILD CITY AND SCHOOL to personally witness my charity dollars in action. I’ll also donate a copy of Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History to their library (05/23)

~ A chance to see a Broadway-style production of Oliver at the Drury Lane Theatre and Conference Center, located in the Burbs of Chicago  (05/23)

~ A three-day Memorial Day weekend tour of Chicago, with visits to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field; and Sears Tower. We’re also taking g a historic gangster tour with stops at  the Biograph Theatre where John Dillinger was gunned down, and the garage where the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre was carried out (05/24 – 05/26)


~ A Moose International League of Guardians Donor Dinner at the historic Milwaukee Arts Museum. In my latest literary work, I wrote about the actor who was considered a favorite son from Milwaukee, but who was actually a Canadian – JACK CARSON (05/27)

   Time permitting, we plan on traveling to Waukegan, the childhood home of Jack Benny; and enjoy opportunities to try some famous Chicago-style pizza and hot dogs, and Milwaukee beer.
