    Big Star Dropped Its Cash-Only Policy, But Many City Spots Are Holding Out
    CHICAGO - Big Star might have ditched its cash-only policy, but the city still has a lot of holdouts. The restaurant made the big switch and started accepting credit cards because guests wanted the change, technology has advanced and Big Star needed to move forward with the neighborhood, said Kim Lyons, a spokeswoman for Big Star.

My client is selling this table and four chair. Please make an offer

  • SpamAlert Hates being spammed

    Is your "client" too embarrassed to sell them on Craiglist himself? That ensemble is giving me an acid flashback to the '60's. I suggest putting all 5 pieces in the alley for a discerning scrapper to haul off.

    Anyway, advertising this sort of stuff isn't allowed on Everyblock.

  • Peirce Elementary Intl Studies School reviewed by a parent

    This is our first year and Peirce and everything has been topnotch. Great teachers, classmates and open learning. My kids love it way more than the private preschool they attended last year. The school is diverse, and the parents are very involved. It's also a large, beautiful school with open, bright classrooms -- rather unusual in the city. My kids' kindergarten room is up for historical status due to a series of beautiful mural panels from the 1920s. Although my kids were fortunate enough to lottery into a few schools, some with better scores, Peirce felt less crowded and sunnier than the rest...a better environment for learning.
