Who are these 808s?

As I write this blog post, two days before the February 13th 808s: Youth Empowerment thru Dance's "Lover's Lane" performance at the Wyllie B. White Field House (1610 W. Howard), 6:30PM, the dancers are busily rehearsing. They all have one goal in mind: to rock the house, and to show all of the attendees that young people, left to their own devices, are capable of putting on a terrific dance show, using their own material, their own creativity, and for many of them, their new found talent.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
