From baseball to birding, hammocks to hot sauce, “It’s All Good” Episode 13 will add a few items to your summer bucket list.
Expanding on last week’s episode, this week continues an exploration of the best spots to truly enjoy our (far too short) warm summer months.
Reporter Atavia Reed starts the episode with a culinary tour of 75th Street, including Lem’s Bar-B-Q, Brown Sugar Bakery and Original Soul Vegetarian.
“If I’m covering a story in Chatham, I know I am absolutely going to eat some good food,” Reed says.
Far Northwest Side reporter Ariel Parrella-Aureli wrote a story about a wild turkey roaming the streets, and now she wants to meet up with birders and explore the LaBagh woods.
“I want to start a list of my own birds and see what I can find,” Parrella-Aureli says. “I know the cardinal. I know the sparrow. And I’m embarrassed to guess any others … . I don’t want to upset the birding community.”
The rest of the episode features other items to add to your list, including opportunities to adopt a pet or help students with their dreams of entering the culinary world.
