New construction condos make big street impact on North Damen in Ravenswood

Newly completed condo buildings on the 4800 block of North Damen complete a contiguous street wall. Photo Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty Although I pass this...

...construction started along the block around the early 2000s including the CVS/ condo building at Lawrence and Damen completed in 2005

4835-4845 N Damen condos shown above are the most recent large development completed on the block. The condos filled in a major vacant eye sore in what's been a booming location for property values and construction.

Directly across the street two new construction three unit condo buildings (4834 - 4836 North Damen) have also been built.  The first sold out pre-construction.  Unit 2 (three bedrooms, two...

Lost/Discarded child's Christmas gift found. Please claim. Will return.

Tonight while walking along the block of 2000 W. Ainsley was found in brand new condition, children's book "It's Time To Sleep My Love" in partially opened gift wrapping with a label: To Sam, From Aunt Jill and Uncle Jeff. Seriously, it was in the middle of the block, adjacent to the alley, actually propped up against a sign post in the grass as if somebody else had founded it first and left it there. It was dry, so it was discarded after the rain. Please contact me to claim. Would gladly return to rightful owner.

    I believe this belongs to my grandson. He lives on N. Campbell near the post office on Lawrence and has an aunt and uncle with those names. We can verify with them to see if they sent the book. I will be in contact.

Twelve Cocktails of Christmas, Making Spirits Brights

...a shot of schnapps, and tops it off with whipped cream and a candy cane. 2251 W. Lawrence Ave....

This article has 11 other Chicago locations (Show)

1. Let's kick things off with a mug of Glühwein at the Huettenbar. This German-style mulled wine is flavored with citrus, cinnamon and cloves and tastes like the distilled essence of a Christkindl market. 4721 N. Lincoln Ave.

2. Why do people only drink eggnog at Christmas? Um, because a glass of the stuff has more calories than a Whopper Jr. But what the heck, it's the holidays. Throw caution and your diet to the wind at Cafe Selmarie, which spikes its eggnog with dark rum and brandy. 4729 N. Lincoln Ave.

4. 'Tis also cold and flu season, so good thing The Grafton has a Hot Toddy on its winter cocktail menu. Some say the drink has curative powers, and who are we to argue. The Grafton's version is made with Jameson Irish whiskey, sugar in the raw, hot water and a clove-lemon. 4530 N. Lincoln Ave.

...syrup and bitters and is garnished with a cherry soaked in maple syrup and bourbon. 1970 W. Montrose Ave.

6. December's dark and stormy nights call for a Dark & Stormy cocktail, which the bartenders at Gather will be happy to mix for you. Brugal rum provides the dark, lime juice and ginger beer bring the stormy. 4539 N. Lincoln Ave.

7. A splash of Prosecco gives the Robusti Spritz at Tiny Lounge an extra dash of holiday sparkle. Vodka, aperol and fresh lemon and orange juice round out this cocktail, a refreshing alternative to heavier spiced winter cocktails. 4352 N. Leavitt St.

8. Bad Apple's Cold Weather Punch has sugar (apple cider, pineapple and orange juices) and spice (cloves, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg) and something really nice — rum. 4300 N. Lincoln Ave.

...version features Smooth Ambler Old Scout rye, Vieux Carre absinthe, Peychauds bitters and simple syrup. 4111 N. Lincoln Ave.

10. An Irish Coffee is the alcoholic equivalent of comfort food on cold winter's night. Naturally Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro has a version of this classic drink on its menu, made with whiskey, Julius Meinl coffee, creme de menthe and whipped cream. 3905 N. Lincoln Ave.

11. For a different kind of caffeine buzz, head to Bread & Wine and order an X's & O's. The cocktail combines Patron's coffee liquer tequila, ginger liquer, cointreau and a cinnamon simple syrup. 3732 W. Irving Park Rd.

12. We've come to the end of our list, and it's time to go big or go home. Tortuga's Cantina has a 27-ounce margarita that's pretty much a party in a glass. If that's too much for you to handle, order the mojito and pretend you're someplace warm. 3224 W. Lawrence Ave.
