Mike Nowak serves Mimosas



First, who IS this guy?  Why, it’s Mike Nowak, garden writer and Chicago-area radio personality.  And personality he has in spades, as evidenced by his going snark-to-snark and rant-to-rant with three of us on his August 15 radio show.  Listen for yourself.

Then there’s the stunt he pulled during our talk to the independent garden center folks – a stunt that at least one of us had no idea was coming.  Imagine this guy barging into the room, interrupting our presentation and pulling out of his handy bartender’s bag the following: orange juice, champagne, and cocktail goblets for four!  And proceeding to fix Mimosas for all of us.

Well, now that we’ve met our match in Mike Nowak, we’ve invited him to come rant with us and he promises to do just that.

THIS JUST IN:  I learn from Twitter that Mike has a little story online  about this very subject.


  1. I enjoyed following IGC on twitter and Facebook and read about your well received presentation, cocktails and all. Despite the unexpected presence of mimosas at the presenters table, you all look quite professional. I’m realizing I need to get a pair of smart girl glasses.

  2. I did not need to crash your talk after all….someone else did. Now I don’t feel guilty wandering about the streets of Chicago from 6AM-11AM before I caught MASS TRANSIT (Yes this capitalist pig took the train)to O’Hare for my flight back to Albany…….
    Chicago…such a hard town to leave

    The TROLL
