What a lovely idea: one South Looper expressing appreciation toward another South Looper for his encouragement and support. A thank you to a neighborhood maven for using his neighborhood endeavors to help her neighborhood endeavors.
He's a nice guy. And always there for everyone. So on Saturday evening, Donna Adams invited some of Steve Reginald's admirers to the Cafe at State and 13th to formally say how much she truly values his friendship and his good heart. It was supposed to be a surprise that she was going to present him with a framed certificate. But Donna said she feared someone let the cat out of the bag. Steve wouldn't say.
But he did sit around the cafe with a bunch of friends and a bunch of delicious desserts--blueberry cheesecake, tart lemon tarts and apple crumb cake. The pretense Donna floated was that she was hosting a dessert tasting and wanted Steve to drop by to try some new desserts.
Donna says Steve is a "one man South Loop band." And she wants to give him the honor he deserves. He got it. Along with a darn good plate full of sweets.
