City Moves to Shut Down Wicker Park's New D'Vine Bar

On Thursday, Cervante Floyd-Nicks, the manager of The New D'Vine, a lounge and restaurant at 1950 W. North Ave., appeared before Cook County Judge Pamela Hughes Gillepsie on the city's claims. But he didn't have a lawyer and the case was continued to Nov. 13.

When asked about the fight, Floyd-Nicks said it occurred in front of Forever Yogurt at 1924 W. North Ave, about one-half block east.

  • CICS Bucktown reviewed by a parent

    When my daughter first attended this school in kindergarten, the school, teachers and staff were great. Now that she has entered the 6th grade, I fear that the school has slowly gone downhill. Some of the middle school teachers are too lenient, allowing the students to take over the classroom and interrupt learning. Children are being accepted from different parts of the city, majority of the students are wild, untamable and ghetto. I guess you can expect this entering middle school in a Chicago Charter (public) School, but the parents and families don't set a good example either (they're just as ghetto as their children). This is going to be my child's last year here...hoping I can still save her from the bad influence from my fellow minorities.
