Comings and goings in Evanston's restaurant industry made tasty fare for Evanton Now readers last month -- with three such stories ranking among the month's 10 most-read stories. Add a few sides of government and police news, and there you have it.
Police news, topped by the city's first shooting death in six months, dominated Evanston news last month. But plans for summer concerts and a new brewery also were among the most read stories on Evanston Now.
A good news story drew the most reader interest on Evanston Now in December -- tipping readers that a popular coffee shop chain plans to fill a vacant storefront downtown. But traffic dangers, school dress codes and even horse drawn carriages also drew attention.
Reports claiming sexual abuse at the high school and the suppression of student journalists' stories about marijuana use -- along with news of three major downtown development projects -- were among the stories Evanston Now readers read most in October.
You might find it hard to believe what was the second most read story on Evanston Now in September. Right up there with stories of tall new buildings and other more commonly heavily-read fare -- there it was -- the Barnacle.
