Spring is here! We hope for good! I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the beautiful weather Chicago is having this week. And YOU thought Spring was never gonna come!
Huge Congratulations to the producers of After Dark with Joe Piscopo because it was just picked up for 6 episodes on NBC! Woo-hoo! We’ll have some airing dates for you next week, so stay tuned. And come in to The Joynt this weekend and congratulate Stan and the guys on the show. This is a big deal. I don’t know if you know NBC but they are kinda big deal.
Passover is a Jewish and Samaritan holy day and festival commemorating the biblical event of Hebrews’ escape from enslavement in Egypt. It started on Tuesday, the 30th of March and will continue for 7 days until Monday, the 5th of April. So there’s a little trivia for you.
And as long as we’re talking about Spring holidays…
So as you know- Easter is right around the corner and so is the Bunny Hop! Every day I become more excited about JenChicago, The Local Tourist and The Joynt present… BUNNY HOP!

This Sunday marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion- so it’s a super happy day for Christians as it is the foundation of our faith. It has since morphed into an egg-hunting, chocolate eating, cascarones cracking holiday for many. It’s also a great time to connect with your friends and family regardless of your religion. Happy Easter.
