Feels like a long time since I’ve posted!  I’ve been caught up in the Trader Joe’s parking lot hubbub.  However, back to local Evanston deals!  Groupon is running a deal where $40 gets you a ticket to the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto at Pick-Staiger later this month, or to their September performance of “Bravo Brazil” where they collaborate with Brazilian conductor and former principal oboist of the CSO, Alex Klein; and Brazilian pianist Arnaldo Cohen.  Get the Groupon now!
