Mayor, Alderman Burns, Fioretti, Dowell, what are your plans for dealing with all this Crime

It seems that this is getting way out of hand and what's scary is you seem to have no plan in place or one that you are considering. This is getting bad, real bad. I do not want to be a prisoner in my home. This past Saturday there was a running gun battle on the 3600 block and 3500 block of Giles at 3:00p with all type of people milling about, are the gangs running the city, are we helpless in our response to this? Your number one responsibility is the safety of your constituents. I want to thank you in advance for your response to these concerns.

    Same ol' thing with more corruption.

    Cops are busy swiping down purses and backpacks outside of L stations, with a big sign in front of the station announcing they're going to be doing it. Talk about a waste of time and resources.

    And I agree, Bronzeville hasn't been gentrified, and maybe that's the problem. Also, please...

    And I agree, Bronzeville hasn't been gentrified, and maybe that's the problem. Also, please don't make this about Race, because gentrification is about Green, we can have a mix of housing, there is enough vacant land here to build market rate, get rid of those city lots, give them to developers to build, it will help everyone. Get some businesses in here, get some jobs.

    It's very true, there would be outrage if this were on the northside.

Good Time Sports Bar on 35th

Does anyone know anything about the Good Time Sports Bar on 35th near Indiana?

The name showed up on the awning on the side of the building recently so I did some searching online and found news about recent permits and a facebook page that doesn't have much info - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Good-Time-Sports-Bar/429506427185076?sk=page_map

If this place ends up being nice and service is good they are going to do very well. I know I will be a regular! :)

    I hope it is a good success and safe "good times" are had by all....

    Just recommend having some screening of customers. Don't let in any known gang bangers, trouble makers, guys wearing their pants below their butts. Also, don't let in any of my relatives - they are sure to ruin the reputation of any establishment!

    I was there this past weekend, sadly, nothing to rave about. No good beer selections, nothing on tap. It was an older, quiet crowd. There was group of healthcare workers having a good time.

    Good thing about the place, there is a bouncer screening customers. So, no hooligans, gang bangers or thugs inside. By the time I left a DJ was setting up. I believe the place is owned by the liquor store owners, who are middle eastern. Bottom line, won't be going back.
