  • Sandy - the park that some people call Schaalman Park (really Park #517) is on the west side of Sheridan and has no useful view of the lake. There is a pretty good view toward downtown from the rocks at Berger Park and a much better view from the rocks southwest of Osterman Beach.

    A few years ago there were fireworks at Thorndale Beach and it scared my dog so badly he won't walk that way after dark this time of year.

  • Kochlechel condo treasurer, Green Party

    Larry is right. Go to Foster Beach and watch the wonderful fireworks at the
    Saddle and Cycle Club on Saturday night. Or if there are no waves, the pier at Osterman Beach.

5 recent things that have happened in the South Loop I don't understand

Right now, the only sporting event that seems to attract people and keep them in the heart of the South Loop is when the Stanley Cup visits The Scout at 13th and Wabash.  And that a successful business does not make. Although The Scout does pretty well even when the Cup isn't visiting.

  • FGFM What the Cappleman!

    Bonnie McGrath doesn't understand a lot of things.

  • But the ones she thinks she understands, FGFM, she certainly whines about... I've never met anyone with her capacity to complain.

  • Sara Brandt New South Loop Resident

    People are entitled to use their time, money and energy as they choose. Why would you feel the need to have an opinion on people who want to create pink bunny slippers? I've noticed the Internet has encouraged people to have opinions on everything. As a wise person once said, "opinions are like a**holes. Everyone has one and most stink." 😀
