Comcast woes

Does anyone else not have any service from Comcast/Xfinity? We haven't had service all day & the app now says it's estimated to be fixed by 3pm tomorrow. (After it first said 7pm tonight, then 1am...)

How are people's experiences with ATT U-Verse?

    Get an antenna! You'll have everything in HD. Use internet for everything else. Way cheaper.

Need someone to repair gas oven

We need someone to repair our GE gas oven which suddenly stopped working. Any good suggestions?

  • Gina M Lincoln Square Resident

    This company fixed my Whirlpool oven.

    It was a bit expensive, but they were able to schedule me quickly and also got the part ordered quickly. They carry common repair items with them in their repair vehicles, but need to order and pick up parts that are a little less common. The technician diagnosed the problem within minutes and knew exactly how to fix it right away. Overall, I was very pleased with them. I haven't had any issues with my oven since they repaired it.

  • I'd recommend Abt. They did a terrific job installing our kitchen appliances and I know they do repairs.

  • I always use Abesto for many years now, for repairs on my appliances, mainly washer, dryers, dishwashers. They do my commercial washers and my residential. I don't know if they do ovens. 847-222-0002.

What's happening at Matty K's

I went there today to purchase simple, common item: a plunger. Guess what? They don't have any. The store was nearly empty and the shelves looked nearly bare. Anyone have an update? Too bad, I'd rather frequent a neighborhood business instead of Home Depot.

  • There apparently is some ongoing issue with Matty K's and their supplier(s). What I was told was that the store had a contract or something that could not be broken and they were stuck with the supplier, who was not working with them. The whole thing seemed kind of bizarre...

    There apparently is some ongoing issue with Matty K's and their supplier(s). What I was told was that the store had a contract or something that could not be broken and they were stuck with the supplier, who was not working with them. The whole thing seemed kind of bizarre in that I'm not sure why a supplier would want to 'starve' a store and not sure why a store wouldn't consult a lawyer. I too have gone there to buy items in the neighborhood and could not find basic things.

  • Dawn, I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience with them. I've always found them very helpful and informative, and they've usually had exactly what I needed. However, they are very oriented to their landlord customers, and know who they are. These people get a LOT of extra attention, which is only reasonable, because they spend hugely in that place and usually have running tabs.

Abandoned red honda crv blocking garage

Opened the garage door to discover an abandoned crv (red) Illinois plates: R45 7334 blocking our garage. Back door open and stereo missing. Called 911 and currently waiting for police to arrive.

    (btw how did lincoln towing get ahold of it? were they just listening on the radio to swoop in like they do for an accident? or was it done as a city contracted tow? if not you have to have a sign up w/ lincoln towing's info, no, and she might be able to make a complaint against someone on that point?)

  • Chris B. Neighborhood blogger and activist

    What a pain! Seems like you went through all the right steps. I am sorry to see that one of the EveryBlock comment makers has the intelligence a pile of rocks, but when people ignore him and mark his comments as "unneighborly" he will eventually go away. Think of a two year old having a temper tantrum... the more you pay attention to it, the more they will kick and scream. Eventually, if you ignore them (properly removing them from a store/restaurant/etc) they will calm down.

Reported Dead Body on SB LSD

This morning around 10:00am, I was heading southbound on Lake Shore Drive. Between Hollywood Ave and Bryn Mawr entrances, I saw a male adult laying flat faced down 4 inches from the Drive. Honestly, in an unnatural position. It almost caused me to slam on my brakes to stop and check. My initial thought was, "oh my god!, there's a dead man!"

I continued driving for safety reasons, but immediately called 911 to report what I had just witnessed. I...

This morning around 10:00am, I was heading southbound on Lake Shore Drive. Between Hollywood Ave and Bryn Mawr entrances, I saw a male adult laying flat faced down 4 inches from the Drive. Honestly, in an unnatural position. It almost caused me to slam on my brakes to stop and check. My initial thought was, "oh my god!, there's a dead man!"

I continued driving for safety reasons, but immediately called 911 to report what I had just witnessed. I reported the location. The dispatcher began to express some level of anxiety and asked, "Where is he?!?!? Do you know where he is?!??!? We can't find him!!... We've had many calls but we can't find him.." I told her the exact location.

Does anyone know what the heck happened??? I never stopped. I tried looking at the news and police blogs and can't get any info. I'm very curious.

  • Michelle Edgewater Edgewater Resident: Love the neighborhood!

    Sounds like quite a disturbing sight, glad you called 911. It may not be related, but there is a man who frequently sleeps right next to the curb of LSD at Bryn Mawr. I see him all the time while walking to the lakefront.

  • d3 NOH

    I wonder if this relates to the tent that's been camped out 10' from LSD for the last week. It was just south of there, first on the west side then moved at some point on or before Friday to just on the east side of LSD,

20TH District CPD/Alderman O'Connor

Hey. Why is it that you have to call the police a total of 24 times before they investigate a complaint? And by investigate, I mean drive by slowly as 10-15 kids are in the alley shooting off M120's and shooting Roman candles at each other. Really?! YouTube is gonna love these videos. Btw it's 12:30 am.

  • 5500 N Cambell? I counted the last one at about 1:30.

  • Pipsqueak Lincoln Square Resident

    Exactly. Me too. Not to mention their fireworks were being lit by kids under 10. At first I was worried. Then I was hoping they'd blow their hands off the later it got and the address was 5526 N. Campbell for the record. I even went out there and asked...

    Exactly. Me too. Not to mention their fireworks were being lit by kids under 10. At first I was worried. Then I was hoping they'd blow their hands off the later it got and the address was 5526 N. Campbell for the record. I even went out there and asked them to stop as the Roman candles were going off when what looked like a 10 year old girl was holding them. They argued that "it's 4th of July what the hell do you want?" My reply was that I wanted to sleep along with everyone else in my building. We actually all emailed the alderman in regards to this and non response of the 20th and YES it was going on well through 1:30 am!!!! I can see lighting them off till a reasonable time like 10pm...but 1:30 am?!

  • Mr Uncle Lived in Chicago since 1997

    Maybe the 20th district bosses were all over at O'Connor house or visiting his neighbor to get a job security off duty for work at Walsh construction? It's unlikely you will ever hear back from 40th ward unless you donate frequently to his campaign.
