NBTA dedicates May ride to Florence Berman
The North Branch Trail Alliance (NBTA) of Greater Chicago will dedicate its May 19, 2018 ride “Icons of the Northwest Area” to Florence Berman, the mother of Scott Berman. The Berman family owns SuperDawg, the popular Gladstone Park drive-in located just off the North Branch Trail. This Northwest Area icon was named to the 2003 internationally acclaimed 1000 Places To See Before You Die. SuperDawg was also NBTA’s first Business Partner. The SuperDawg Family has been a fixture on the northwest side - supporting generations with distinctive food and generous donations.
“We wanted to help hold up the Berman Family who recently lost their matriarch. Our May 19th ride date falls so close to Mother's Day and celebrates icons along the trail,” said NBTA Board member, Julie Morley. “There’s no doubt about it - this is her ride,” said NBTA Board member and North River Commission (NRC) Vice President at Large, Jim O’Reilly. NBTA invites everyone to join the Icons of the Northwest Area ride on Saturday, May 19 at 11:30 AM in Forest Glen. Northwest Area icons will also include The Leaning Tower (Niles) and North Park Nature Center (North Park), along with stops at SuperDawg, Village Creamery (Niles) and Marie’s Pizza (Mayfair). All are asked to bring money to support our NBTA Business Partners. More about this ride and NBTA at www.northbranchtrailalliance.com on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
