Clean up Damen

anyone interested in getting together early one morning next weekend and picking up some of the trash along Damen between Chicago and Augusta? I'd love to try and make my neighborhood look at least a little better!

  • Carlos Munoz CostaRicaCarlos

    I'm still up for it. Let's pick a date. Saturday morning the 15th?

  • Vanessa, West Town Resident interested in improving the community.

    I cannot make that date as I will be out of town, but I am so pleased to see there are residence interested in cleaning up the trash blowing around our streets. (I pick up at least a bag everyday outside my condo) I will certainly be interested in not only helping when I get back, but also finding a way to encourage residence to use their bins responsibly so that the trash doesn't even make it onto the street. How about that?

Pitbull at doorstop cleaners 1012 n ashland

Has anybody else had a problem with the pitbull at door stop cleaners at 1012 n ashland? I've witnessed it twice escaping from the cleaners and chasing after dogs.

With the amount of kids and dogs up and down that block, it's just a matter of time before somebody or something is attacked. Extremely irresponsible of the owner to have a viscous dog in their store!!! It's the last time I'll go there.

  • West town neighbor, we'll stop "harassing and belittling" you when you stop doing the same to pitbulls. Go away.

  • LOL! See what I mean? Such anger. No worries. More pit bulls for you!

Upholstery for chairs?

I am looking for someone who can cheaply upholster some old chairs? I can provide the fabric and the cushion material of the existing chairs is fine... Just needs to be recovered.

Any recommendations?

  • kemoreau architecture, bikes, & beagles

    Jorge's Upholstery on ashland did an amazing job with my complicated antique love seat-- fast and reasonably priced. They'll give a quote via a photo.

  • I also used Jorge, based on the yelp reviews, and was pleased with the result.

  • I concur...I have used Jorge in the past and can't say enough about his service and workmanship not to mention that he is really reasonably priced. http://jorgesupholsterychicago.com/#all
    I did the same, sent him a photo and he gave me an estimate. He was right on.

Thank to all our awesome neighbors for the calls and tips. Thor gave up life in the streets after three weeks and came home today at 6am.

  • Glad he's home safe!!!🏡

  • I saw Thor's flyer at my vet's office, Family Pet, on Thursday and was happy to inform them that Thor had returned home! They promptly took down the flyer!

Is El Valle out of business?

The signs in the window are gone, the inside looks cleared out, and their front desk is out on the sidewalk. Does anyone know if they're remodeling, or out of business? I think their food is pretty good, and it's a shame it is always so empty.

  • Pretty sure they're done -- the space was listed for rent for a while. It seems to be pending now, though, so hopefully it won't remain empty for long. But, yes, the food at El Valle was good and the people were really nice.

Public safety

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do. It's a great idea to post after you call...

There are tons of posts on here from people asking what to do about: random people loitering regularly, crowds on neighborhood corners in the middle of the night yelling at people, women's screams in the night, potential brothels/drug houses, and the list goes on......the answer to all of these questions is to CALL THE POLICE....not to post it on social media and wait for a group consensus on what to do. It's a great idea to post after you call the cops, so people know to keep their eyes opened, but please, if anything looks wrong to you, do you part and call the police. Nobody here can help. I worry about all of the people who have been hurt and all of the property that's been damaged or stolen because people posted here instead of doing what's right. Let's all do what we can to keep our streets safe!!

  • I've been to a few caps meetings and the police say "if we don't know about it, we can't do anything about it".
