Newly married and In the winter of '96 Gina & Andy needed an affordable apartment that would allow dogs, have parking and be close to the El and lake. Uptown proved to be the best fit.

Wilson Ave. It was a fledgling Chinese restaurant whose owner needed a break. Over an egg roll Andy & Mr. Fung negotiated out the terms and a week later Gina & Andy had their first professional kitchen.
