Wheel vandals

Woke up this morning on Glenwood near Pratt an saw a small hybrid car on a crate , someone stole their wheels on the driver side.

  • Bill in Rogers Park Rogers Parker - co-founder of Glenwood Neighbors

    Would be interesting to find out if indeed tires were stolen. And that is pretty busy area so wonder if anyone saw this in action (whatever "this" is).

  • Eoj Rational, actively involved Rogers Parker(ian)

    This happened to me on Eastlake right across from my window. They can do this in minutes by selecting a popular car (rims are in demand) that is at the front or back of a row so they can pull right up and a crate or a block is wedged under the body. Then they let the air out as they are removing the lugs. Done.

    I cost me 525. To replace everything. My deductible is 500. So I will cause damage if I ever catch them in the act.

    The initial burst of business activity was due to the novelty factor. Most people like trying a new place at least once. Sustainability is the real test and Bullhead didn't have enough sustainability and repeat business to pay the high rent or even heat the space. It was a bad business plan from the get go and no amount of incentives or charitable subsidies can, or should, keep a bad business plan afloat. Paco either didn't research the community and its demographics or was buzzed when he thought he could successfully expand a 70-capacity business into a 300-capacity business at that location. You can't compete in one of Chicago's premier Taco-centers if all you have is a handful of weird tacos that are overpriced. The only other distinguishing characteristic was whisky and expensive, pedestrian beer. The mixed drinks were weird. Margaritas didn't taste like real Margaritas and the Bloody Marys didn't taste like real Bloody Marys. The same beers at better prices with better ambiance were only steps away. That coupled, with the off-putting cash only policy, indicated a short life span from the initial opening and the jam-packed Follow Me On Friday event.
