For John Giovannoni, co-owner of The Music Room in downtown Palatine, a dying request has become a reason to celebrate. "His request before he passed away was that he didn't want a service or a memorial or a funeral or any of that, but he wanted a party," said Lindsey Lindstrom, a former employee who is organizing the party. The party celebrating Giovannoni's life will be held from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at The Music Room, 26 N. Brockway in Palatine.
