CHICAGO ( March 11, 2017 ): Andersonville businesses, residents, and visitors have collectively nominated 35 unique, local businesses in the neighborhood for 2017 Andersonville Honors awards highlighting the neighborhood's best food, drinks, shopping, and more. On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce will present the 6th annual Andersonville Honors awards celebration and party at Mary's Attic ( 5400 N. Clark. ) from 6:30 - 9PM. The pH Comedy Theater will host the evening's entertainment. Final voting is open now through Friday, March 17 at Noon CST.

"The pH Comedy Theater is thrilled to host this year's Andersonville Honors, and our actors plan to take guests through a night of improv, games, jokes, music, and more," said pH Executive Director Brett Mannes. The pH Comedy Theater is also nominated for an Honors award this year in the "Arts Organization/Business of the Year" category.

Several Andersonville businesses are nominated for the first time this year, particularly those up for the "Welcome Addition Award" for best new business of 2016. These include Bar Roma ( 5101 N Clark ), DeFloured Bakery ( 1477 W Balmoral ), Goddess and Grocer ( 5318 N Clark ), Middle East Bakery's Café ( 1512 W Foster ), and TrueNorth ( 5507 N Clark ).

Along with entertainment by The pH Comedy Theater, each ticket purchase also includes food provided by Hamburger Mary's and Andersonville Brewing, one drink ticket per guest with additional cash bar, access to an interactive raffle, and the opportunity to help decide the "Audience Choice Award," a $250 cash prize awarded to one of the finalists from event sponsor, Bridgeview Bank.

"There's no greater joy than engaging with our neighbors in a fun way," said Mannes, "and the Honors celebration lets us do just that!"
