Walking downtown Evanston with Grand Bend's Andy Kiener

Evanston is the nearest North Shore suburb from Chicago, and its downtown rivals almost any Chicago neighborhood as a classically urban environment. Last weekend Joe Zekas met Andy Kiener at Grand Bend at Green Bay, at the edge of downtown Evanston, for a walking tour of the area.

The two started with a look at Grand Bend, where Andy’s overseeing sales, and then walked a block and a half to Evanston’s Farmers’ Market, which most would concede is the best on the North Shore.

In later segments, which you can see here in the coming weeks or anytime on our YouTube channel, Joe and Andy check out the rich array of shops, restaurants, bars and scenes in downtown Evanston.
