Lawlapalooza 2010


Save the date!

Friday, June 17, 2011, is the second annual Lawlapalooza Open House at Compton Law Group.


Starting about 4 p.m., we will have a tent in the lot, and the Blues Band “George ‘Music Man’ Kyles & Mr. Bradet” will play a couple of hours of blues. Following George will be the full-fledged six-piece band, Local Favorite. George is 80, and doesn’t have a web site, but you can check out Local Favorite at


Food will be provided, and plenty of it!


Other than to have a good time, we are doing this as a benefit to a charity that is near and dear to the heart of Dan’s mother. Trinity Hope feeds lunch at Christian schools to thousands of kids in Haiti every day:


Any donation, from the smallest to the largest, will get you in. A QUARTER will feed a kid a meal. 93 cents out of every dollar collected ends up as food on a plate for a child that may well not see another meal until he comes to school again.


Brittain & Ketcham will match the collection.




Dan’s son, Dan Compton, will be doing the catering for this year’s event. Dan is a cook at Vie (, a Michelin-rated restaurant in Western Springs. Here is the menu:


a) Chimichurri Cheesesteak – chimichurri-marinated and grilled flank steak, sharp cheddar fondue, grilled onions

b) Homemade Beer Brats – beer-poached and grilled sausage, stout mustard, grilled peppers

c) PBLT – slow-roasted and grilled pork belly, lettuce, tomato, garlic mayo

d) Whitefish Escabeche – tomato vinaigrette, fennel and cabbage slaw

Sides – potato salad, “elote”-style grilled corn with spicy mayo and lime

The party will be in the lot of 85 Market, with parking in the Jewel, and up and down the street.
