Stan's Doughnuts Aldine and Broadway!?

Please tell me it's true!

  • Good news! I hope they maintain the outdoor area like Caribou did. That was great in the summer, and I miss it.

  • Bernie on Roscoe Lakeview resident for 30 years

    Oh goodie. Weather permitting this is the route I take to get to Lincoln Park on my bike to keep my waist down. I'll have to get bigger tires now to handle the extra weight.

Found Iphone 6plus

I found an iPhone 6plus on the 1400 block of west Belmont ave. if you lost your phone message me with the details and I will return it. The screen is shattered but it still powers up.

  • The New Guy Local Weirdo

    I was working on that block and the owner sent an alert to the phone. Then I saw a man walking around with a MacBook looking around on the ground. He tracked it to that block with find my iPhone.

  • Thanks, New Guy. What I took away from this thread is that we should make sure we have Siri enabled so that if a good soul like you finds our phone they can ask Siri (verbatim), "Whose phone is this?".

Comcast Down

Just a heads-up. Comcast is down in the area near and around the Marianos on Lawrence. Confirmed with Comcast and a few neighbors. Comcast message says it will be back by "5:57." I work from home and without Internet, I am sunk. If anyone can confirm a part of Ravenswood with no outages or good spaces to work with wifi, I'd be very grateful. Thanks!

  • Catbus Philosopher, Third-Class

    Yeah, I tried that. But I couldn't connect to the alternative DNS server through Comcast. :-|

  • I use my phone as a Hotspot when my Internet goes down. Just moved from Comcast to RCN & now saving nearly $100 per month with a 120Mbps service.

Gas and water Walcott shutoff over Christmas?

We got back from Christmas travels yesterday and noticed both our furnace and water heater were off, seemingly due to a gas shutoff (seen it before when we have had gas off for maintenance). Also our water had that "rotten" smell. We live on Winchester and are wondering if anyone else has noticed this as well? If it was done we received no notification. Thanks

Ashland and winnemac

Anyone know how long Ashland and winnemac west bound will be closed? Didn't see or receive any notice that major ( looks major to me) sewer work would be happening in the area. Very hard to go west now or north on Ravenswood.

  • crusty swivelhead in the nabe

    I think that this is an emergency repair. The pavement had been sinking for a few weeks, and buckled right before they closed the intersection.

    I do agree about the project on Lawrence, it is terrible.

    Keep in mind, there are a lot of folks at CDOT that hate automobiles....

    Keep in mind, there are a lot of folks at CDOT that hate automobiles. They want everyone to ride bikes or take public transportation. These people think it is great when a section of roadway is removed. These are the people that would like to destroy Ashland Ave with a set of centerline bus lanes.

    Well darn.. I guess I'll just have to ride my bike =)

We all saw you.

To the entitled ignoramus who stopped at the intersection of School and Hoyne and emptied all of the garbage out of your car window prior to speeding off, there were about 5 of us out and about who saw you and gave you the silent finger. May karma repay you with a large plop of bird excrement.

  • Pendragon dragon king

    I also did that same thing when two women parked by my house, while picking their kids up for school. I walked out, handed them back the bag. one tried to say it wasn't their garbage, while holding a huge McDonald's cup. shm. I just said, give me a break. I haven't seen them since.

  • Sara, I would have to assume that the entitled idiots who don't care about littering, probably don't care about kittens either. A logical fallacy to be sure, but I'm sticking to it.

At home hair dresser/salon services

Can anyone recommend a hairdresser who offers salon services out of their home? Or someone who has a salon in their home? What is the average price for a haircut v. going to a full service salon?

  • Try Lindsay Station on Lincoln Avenue (just south of Addison). Their prices are much better than a fancy full service salon.

Gunshots?

Hey, did anyone else hear 5 gunshots10 to1:00 in the morning? I live near Montrose & Welles Park, & believe I heard the sounds coming from farther south, but not sure how far away. I'm hoping to be wrong & that they were just kids messing around, but they really sounded like gunshots. :/

  • GCV North Center Resident

    I heard those as well. Couldn't make out exactly where they were from but it sounded like it was south and west of Irving and Leavitt.

  • Gio V Lincoln Square - born and raised.

    An abnormally large number of shots fired in the vicinity last night. In addition to this one, shots fired were heard near California and Winnemac at around 4am, and then a few minutes later around Winnemac Park.
