March 14 was Pi Day and our racial justice fellow Debbie-Marie Brown celebrated at Hoosier Mama.

On Sunday, we set our clocks forward and lost an hour of sleep. I don’t know about you, but we here at the RoundTable are still tired.

More than 40 people attended the Fifth Ward meeting last week to hear a discussion about building a Fifth Ward school.

More than 200 people crowded into St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Sunday to engage in an intense and, at times, emotional discussion about plans involving an Evanston hotel that has been housing people on an emergency basis during the pandemic.

The Margarita Inn, 1566 Oak Ave., began serving as housing for homeless people at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when Evanston and other municipalities asked hotels to take in people who had been living in shelters.
