My Neighborhoods pages were held from today's paper because Tim Novak broke big news broke on the Mayor Daley from — his son Patrick had a secret deal with City Hall. .
So rather than leave you cheated of your Friday neighborhood fix, I posted a tale about how to haggle for a Christmas tree, complete with a warning about tree salesmen and a map of every licensed seasonal tree lot in the city. If your tree lot isn't on the list, you might want to use that information to get a better deal on a tree.
There's also an excellent illustration by Sun-Times in-house artist Guillermo Munro, you just have to see.
So take a read, and post your Christmas shopping (for trees or otherwise) here. It will keep us in the holiday spirit.
See you in the paper next week.
