Has anyone been yet? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Hopefully this is the catalyst for that stretch of Milwaukee that gets some other entrepreneurs to open up shop in all those vacants just north of the Bloomingdale trail...

    Buster, It looks like you were skimped on the size of your slice. I understand the thought of paying $5-8 for a slice of pizza is a little over the top but my wife and I were able to get dinner for $25 and were very full and satisfied. There aren't many places to go grab a quick dinner for less than that.

    nosara: that was 3 slices for 2 people.

  • I went on Friday night, place had a good ambiance for being small and line was out the door. We had to get moving so stood in line to take a slice to go, and no carry out? I've never heard of a pizza place that doesnt do carry out. Still cant wrap my had around it.

Clean up Damen

anyone interested in getting together early one morning next weekend and picking up some of the trash along Damen between Chicago and Augusta? I'd love to try and make my neighborhood look at least a little better!

  • Carlos Munoz CostaRicaCarlos

    I'm still up for it. Let's pick a date. Saturday morning the 15th?

  • Vanessa, West Town Resident interested in improving the community.

    I cannot make that date as I will be out of town, but I am so pleased to see there are residence interested in cleaning up the trash blowing around our streets. (I pick up at least a bag everyday outside my condo) I will certainly be interested in not only helping when I get back, but also finding a way to encourage residence to use their bins responsibly so that the trash doesn't even make it onto the street. How about that?

Installing curtain rods.

Anybody have a good recco for a handyman? All measurements are done. We have tools.

  • We used the Task Rabbit app and found a Lance S who was very meticulous and professional to help hang some cabinets.

Masonry

Does anyone know the name of the masonry contractor that constructed several brick walls around exterior stairs about a month ago on WABANSIA (2200 West- I think)? We'd like to do a similar project.

  • I don't know that project, but we used AAA Masonary for tuckpointing and another project. Robert (the owner) is super knowledgeable and they do fantastic work. I would recommend them for any brick work

  • Strong Pritzker school mom

    Thank you for the recommendation

Street lights out for 3 nights

The street lights on the 2000 and 2100 block of Haddon have been out since Monday.

Both my husband and I have made several reports through 311. So far all talk and no action

I was told it was a city issue. Just so I'm understand...Crime is up in the area and now we turned the lights out to make it easier for the criminals to hide

  • Yes, agreed -- call the alderman. This will get something done way faster than 311 calls.

  • LT Res Long Time Chicagoan

    Looks like my request for services on the city website has had an effect, the lights are back on.

Public safety

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do. It's a great idea to post after you call...

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do. It's a great idea to post after you call the cops, so people know to keep their eyes opened, but please, if anything looks wrong to you, do you part and call the police. Nobody here can help. I worry about all of the people who have been hurt and all of the property that's been damaged or stolen because people posted here instead of doing what's right. Let's all do what we can to keep our streets safe!!

  • I've been to a few caps meetings and the police say "if we don't know about it, we can't do anything about it".

Silver Cloud now Kitten's Corner

Anyone have any news about Silver Cloud? Noticed they got evicted and now have a sign up saying Kitten's Corner coming soon.

  • Alisa DNAinfoCHI Wicker Park/Bucktown/WestTown reporter

    Saw the sign too and pretty sure it is a joke.

  • Tom

    A sign on the window today said temporarily closed for renovation.
