Elmhurst Makes More "Top 10 Best" Lists...

by Thomas Makinney

Elmhurst is no stranger to the Top 10 List. From bike-friendly, eco-minded, and family friendly, no Elmhurst resident is surprised to see Elmhurst land on a list of Top 10 Best list.  This time we are holding on the number 6 spot of the Top 10 Best Chicago Suburbs for Families!

 A recent study by Movoto gave Elmhurst the high-ranking spot based on our Play score, School score, Commute, and Median Income.  The PlayScore ranked 71 out of 100, and GreatSchools.org gave our schools a perfect 10 out 10!

This honor comes in addition to the recent nomination of Elmhurst Memorial Hospital as one of the most beautiful hospitals in the nation. 
To help EMH win, you can vote online HERE by June 8.  The hospital has made the 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals list for the past three consecutive years, including a runner-up 2nd place finish in 2012.  Will this be our year? Cast your vote!

TV Hit “Chicago Fire” Filming in Elmhurst

by Thomas Makinney

If you’ve seen the show on TV, you most know they aren’t using a studio in LA for the exciting new drama, which features many familiar blocks in and around the city of Chicago.  Elmhurst residents will want to keep a close watch on upcoming episodes, as the popular show has been filming right here in town.

While public access to the area where they are filming is restricted, you may be lucky enough to see a few stars out and about. 

 A few Elmhurst residents were lucky enough to get a picture with a couple of the actors last Tuesday. 

If you are a fan of the show, or just channel-surfing, set your DVR for Elmhurst’s Chicago Fire cameo!

It’s Back! District 205’s “Top Pizza” Event Returns

by Thomas Makinney

Who will win, and who will be told to pack their pepperonis and go home?

“Top Pizza,” a District 205 Top Chef-style competition, will put local pizzerias toe to toe in a fight to determine who makes the best pizza in ELmhurst. The winner will be determined in a voting system among the taste-testing attendees.

Last year over 350 judges weighed in and Roberto’s took the distinuished gold metal for Elmhurst’s Best Pizza. Will they be able to defend their title as champion this year?

Give them your best Tom Colichio stare-down and join the judges tonight at 5:30 in the York High School Commons.  Admission is just $10, and that gets you a sampling of every pizza vendor’s best offerings. 

The Top Pizza event is hosted by the District 205 Foundation for Educational Excellence, and tickets are available at elmhurst205.org/foundation_pizza or at the door.

Ready to make the move to one of Chicago’s best suburbs? Give us a call at 630-441-5570 or visit us on the web at www.MariaandTom.com
