Patrick Gallivan has managed the popular L. Woods Tap and Pine Lodge restaurant for 17 years. In addition to being the manager of one of the village’s busiest restaurants, he is also one of the officers of the Lincolnwood Police Foundation.

Q: Where did you grow up?

A: I grew up in Sauganash not far from here — right at Peterson and Cicero. I grew up loving this area. I still love it. It’s a great place to live.

Q: Pets?

A: I had a dog when I was a child but no, not now. I’m highly allergic to cats and dogs much to my daughter’s dismay.

Q: Family?

A: I have a wife, a daughter and a son. I will have been married 23 years in October. My daughter is Evie. She’s 13. My son is Cooper and he’s 16.

Q: What book are you currently reading and what book would you like to read next?

A: I am not currently reading a book. I’m not a voracious reader. It takes me forever. But the book I’d like to read next is the David Sedaris book my wife gave me for my birthday in June. I just bought (“Verve: The Sound of America”) that will probably take me a long time to read.

Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I thought about being a cop like my grandfather and uncle. I really would have loved to have owned a record store. I worked at Record City in Skokie at one point. Before I started here, I was running live music clubs in the city.

Q: What is the Lincolnwood Police Foundation?

A: It’s a not-for-profit police foundation for Lincolnwood that helps us subsidize programs that might fall out of the purview of the village. I am one of the officers.

Q: First job?

A: I would have to say babysitting and umping Little League games.

Q: A movie you’d recommend?

A: “The Godfather.” My all-time favorite. I love the Shakespearean tone of it all. Some people might say it glorifies that lifestyle but I feel like it actually shows you the down side and the decline of the family.

Q: Favorite charity?

A: Autism Speaks or anything related to autism. My son is on the spectrum.

Q: Words of wisdom?

A: I’m trying to think of the last fortune cookie I saw or read. I guess the old “do unto others…” or maybe the importance of patience — one of the two.

Q: Favorite local restaurant?

A: L. Woods, of course.

Q: What is an interesting factoid about yourself?

A: In spite of my love of music, I’ve never played an instrument. I have a vast knowledge of music but no knowledge of how to play an instrument. That shocks a lot of people.
