Meet the Pall family: Chas, Liz, baby Jack, and rescue pup Lucy. The couple moved to Beverly/Morgan Park from River North in December 2019. Although they can’t recall exactly how they started house hunting in our community, Chas does have a distant family connection as his grandfather owned the old St. Cajetan rectory on Artesian from the 1960s through the 1980s.
“We loved the area and were lucky enough to find a house that we loved pretty quickly,” Chas said. “We wanted space for our new arrival, Jack. We looked all over the city, from River North to Roscoe Village, Lincoln Park to Hyde Park, but we really liked everything about the Beverly area.”
Chas, a territory manager for a medical device company, and Liz, an attorney at Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella, enjoy numerous outdoor activities, although having a new baby has hampered their interests a bit. Liz enjoys playing tennis and Chas likes running, cycling and golf. They look forward to becoming members at local athletic clubs, specifically the Beverly Hills Tennis Club.
While the family hasn’t had much of a chance to get involved in the community yet, they did attend BAPA’s New Neighbor meet over the summer and greet and the Garden Walk in September.
“We do get out to walk several miles a day with Jack and Lucy. We love looking at the beautiful architecture; every house is different than the next,” Chas said.
The family has regularly eaten at or taken out from Horse Thief Hollow, Open Outcry, and Unidad. Chas says he loves County Fair, specifically their cinnamon raisin bread, and they patronize Two Mile Coffee Bar every Saturday for a great brew.
“Everyone here is very friendly and we have wonderful neighbors, most of whom we’ve been able to meet despite the pandemic,” Chas said.
