About Father and Son Restaurant
Father and Son Restaurant, located a block away from The Whistler, will be celebrating their 70th year of business in 2017. Their Logan Square location was a Studebaker car dealership before they purchased it in 1962. Make sure you come to the opening early so you can enjoy some of their pizza on The Whistler patio.
Chicago emcee ShowYouSuck is putting his mark on the music world, one skateboarder at a time with his mad hooks, slick rhymes and thought provoking lyrics. Straight from the hood, but you’d never guess it with his board toting, fashion conscious personality and nack for 80s and 90s pop culture.
