    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.

    Friends don't let friends use those private little ATMs...they are a magnet for credit-skimming schemes that don't fly on the more sophisticated bank-owned machines.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    I'll give those little indie ATMs some props though. I requested $20 and it gave me $60. Bingo! Spun again for another $20 and got $40. Third time I only got the $20 so I quit while I was ahead. It was Big Chicks about 9 years ago.

Division Street Apartments Sell for $14.3 Million to West Loop Investors

WICKER PARK —  A new apartment building on the southeast corner of Honore and Division streets in Wicker Park was bought last week for $14.29 million by West Loop-based real estate investors, it was announced on Monday.

Located at 1819 W. Division St., the apartments, named "1819 Lofts," welcomed the first wave of renters on Sunday and are expected to be fully leased by mid-July, Saliterman said.

Previously home to Miller Lumber, Smithfield Properties bought the former lumber yard at 1811-25 W. Division for $3.2 million in 2012.

Saliterman said that his firm was attracted to buying the building because of its "quality construction" and "great location," just east of the Damen and Division intersection.

Headed by Saliterman and Robert Tanaka, Randolph Street Realty Capital also own an apartment building in Logan Square anchored by retail at 2000 N. Milwaukee Ave. that it bought for $4.2 million in 2014.

    What Chicago chefs and bartenders are buying at farmers markets this season
    Fruits and veggies (and perhaps a Nutella-stuffed crepe) are obvious choices at the farmers market, but if you're leaving without a stash of fresh herbs, you're really missing out. From basil to epazote, homegrown herbs can add a punch of flavor to whatever's on this week's menu.

    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools
    Chicago Public Schools announced Thursday the list of 28 elementary schools being tested for lead, a measure CEO Forrest Claypool insisted was being taken "out of an abundance of caution."
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • CJL

    This is a serious question

    I did not realize the entire importance of this testing lead

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, there isn't any found
