    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.

99th Floor Goth store on Halsted

I've lived in Boystown for 10 years and up until maybe a year and a half ago this store used to be open. But now it just has the same window display and the front door is covered in white paper. Tried researching what is going on with the store or the space. Anyone know? Googled it and didn't really find anything significant about why it has remained closed and either the space not put up for lease or sold. Just have been curious and finally remembered to post on here since I walk by it everyday.

  • Mick Long Term Lakeview Resident

    Thank you for your interest and concern jonboyblue and gerigirl, 99th Floor is just taking break and selling on-line but we will back as a brick and mortar very soon. Cheers!

  • Hey Mick! good to see your still alive an kicking. Any plans for where the new location will be?

    BtW you probably dont remember me but I did a fashion show with you and mika at the old club 950. You let me wear this incredible cape from the store with a high collar. Think it was partly PVC, anyway it was awesome! Cant wait for you to be back on the streets.
    Cheers

Luxury Lakeview apartments overlooking the Pride Parade

    Luxury Lakeview apartments overlooking the Pride Parade
    Residents of Halsted Flats, the new luxury apartment tower in Lakeview, will have a great view of Chicago's 47th annual Pride Parade, which takes place on Sunday, June 26. The popular building currently has a limited selection of 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartments available, renting from $3,341 to $3,570 a month.

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

    OMG, gotta get one like now! I always wanted an apartment overlooking the Pride Parade. Do the lower priced units only overlook Cubs fans puking the other 364 days? For over $200/mo. savings it's really a toss-up.

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.
