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! :)

  • Keep us posted! It's right by my place!👍😃

  • Ben how about you visit physically for yourself and provide some feedback rather than internet searches and community forums. Look forward to you eyewitness report.

    Helen, the fact that "Juneway Jungle" is now a perjorative instead of just a neighborhood nickname like "Old Irving Park" means that things have gone very, very wrong, and that can only be cured by good neighbors like you and FutureExChi (there have to be others) who are sick of what's going on to do something about it. Something crazy. Like taking pictures and video of things you see going on (1 picture=1000 words; 1 video=1million) and giving them to the alderman and the police. (Videos, shot by one concerned neighbor, is one reason that drug ring on the west side got broken up.) If necessary, contact the landlords involved. Contact the media. Keep a database of the problem buildings and a list of when you've called the police and why. And when one of these buildings has a date in Housing Court, somebody, (more than likely retired) is going to have to show up to advocate for concerned residents. If Section 8 renters are the problem, there needs to be an ongoing dialogue with the CHA.

    Sound extreme, Helen? It is. It's the difference between popping pills and invasive surgery. But sometimes, the surgery is the only thing that works.

    And I'm here to tell you Helen, staying up in the grilles of the people who can do something about this is not going to win you any popularity contests. You may be called "crazy" and worse, as I have, by some of your less courageous neighbors, the slumlords who operate some of these buildings, and the problem tenants themselves. But you've lived there 55 years and, presumably, you'd like to see "Juneway Jungle" become just a nickname again, so it shouldn't matter.

    I came to Chicago from the Philippines. I love this city and its people. Although I am aware of the problems with guns and violence since I happen to live in the not so good part of Woodlawn. I think we need to come together as artistmac has advocated and reclaim the neighborhoods we are in. There is more than the guns and gangsters problems. The root cause maybe is breakdown of family values, and the absence of faith and spirituality as I see it. Philippines is poor but family and community values are deeply rooted in us. These young folks who involve in gangs are lost children who wants to belong. Too bad, they can only find it in gangs. And we can't rely only on government to clean that up. As they say it takes a whole village..

Got this from a young Black Man on Facebook, all you young black men we have a challenge for You...........Pull Your Pants Up, straighten out your hat, stand tall with pride, speak clear with confidence, stop acting like a thug. This "Jackie Robinson Little League Team" is like a gigantic light bulb of an idea that is grounded in years of tried and true formula for success in life. It is the difference of what you see in the World Wide attention versus the senseless recognition of getting your street name spray painted on a wall for being shot for who knows what. You want to be respected, you want to stop being a target for police, then stop acting and looking like a thug. Our neighborhoods are being held hostage, our children are being shot, and our Women and Elders are being disrespected and so this is my Challenge to you.....Pull your pants up!

  • NAFSBUC Walking my Fitbit and Flatcoat 10k steps/day
  • Apple Jaxxx Pissing people off - not once, but twice....

    Yes! It's the kids running around here with their pants sagging that's behind all the social and economic ills that plague us. Look at all those young Black elected legislators with their sagging pants, passing laws just so they can carry our their agenda. Shame on all these sagging Brothers out here causing foreclosures and devaluing our property! Unemployment, inflation, crime, real estate bubbles -- you name it, Saggers are to blame. Round 'em up....

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control. The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless. Join us to learn ways to stay calm and increase your chances of securing employment, retaining employment or being promoted.

 Job Opportunities Will Be Distributed
 Information On Training Programs Will Be Available
 Networking
 Professional Development

No appointment or RSVP needed, just show up prepared to learn and communicate.
