    'Easy' Guide To Chicago: Charting All The Local Treasures In The Series
    Joe Swanberg's new Netflix series, Easy, showcases an array of Chicago's local treasures, once again establishing what Chicagoans do best: have complicated relationships! Just kidding, the answer is (and always will be) eating and drinking. And while the show is much more than local novelty, it's still fun to see our favorite haunts onscreen and discover new ones along the way.

Man Charged With Groping Woman on Loyola's Campus

Aflaski was identified as the man who inappropriately touched a woman as she was walking on campus in the 6300 block of North Winthrop on Sept. 19, according to police. 

    Man Charged With Groping Woman on Loyola's Campus
    A man has been charged with groping a woman on Loyola University's campus in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood earlier this month, police announced Friday. Soroush Aflaki, 22, of the 6900 block of North Greenwich Avenue, was charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery in a public place, according to a release from Chicago Police.

Look to donate a couch

I'm looking for an organization to donate a couch to, preferably one that will pick it up. The cushioning and frame are all in excellent condition-- it is a foldout sleeper sofa about the size of a love seat. The only problem with it is that it is a leather couch, and Chicago winters have not been kind to it. The leather has started to peel off. A couch cover could easily fix this, but a lot of charities demand that donated furniture be in excellent condition because they resell it.

Does anyone know of a charity that would accept a donation like this?

    I shouldn't add fuel to the fire but anyone who donates to CARE for Real should know that they donate their left overs to Salvation Army. I have seen the SA army truck there several times and one time when dropping off donations to CARE I asked and they (CARE) said they had received a huge clothing donation and didnt have space to store it. I personally think people should be able to donate to where they feel their donation will do the best.

    We recently took a sofa to Habitat for Humanity on Kimball at Peterson. We had to provide photos showing that the sofa was in good condition before they would agree to accept it. They would have picked up from us, but we were able to just take it to them. Also, we have donated a lot of stuff (mostly smaller) to the Salvation Army; taking the items to their store on Dempster at Waukegan Road. Only once did we try to arrange a pick up at our home with them, but ended up canceling it ourselves due to an issue that came up, so we don't have any experience with their reliability. Hope this helps...

Protest on sheridan?

Anyone know what the protest on sheridan is about?

  • chrisfinn bornagain chicagoan

    It is illogical to have a protest the middle of rush hour. People are hurrying to get home & no matter what you are protesting there will be no sympathy for the cause, because the drivers are tired & hungry.

  • JohnL Retired old foggey.

    With all the liberals who live around here, is a dumb place to have a protest.

We also have 3 dogs. Two Toy Poodles 9# each, and one Miniature English Sheepdog 28#. This happened in Mexico, since dogs are treated so poorly there, you cannot help rescuing them.

    Gas forced air for the most even, efficient heat. You might have a hard time finding that in Chicago apartments. Keep in mind with the radiator heat, the landlord's/building "managers" usually keep the temperature at the bare bones minimum required by the city, if that, unless you call 311 on...

    Gas forced air for the most even, efficient heat. You might have a hard time finding that in Chicago apartments. Keep in mind with the radiator heat, the landlord's/building "managers" usually keep the temperature at the bare bones minimum required by the city, if that, unless you call 311 on them.

    Look for space heaters lying around in any unit that has radiator heat that you can't control yourself. I'd budget another $75-100/month for any place with radiator heat advertised as "heat included", for additional electric space heaters, electric blankets, etc. that probably WILL be needed.

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

    Most forced air systems should/could have a humidifier hooked up to them but they ARE a simple maintenance item that most would be clueless what to do so they are either non-existent, filled with moldy water or disconnected altogether.

    Any type of electric heat, especially those wall units that double as an air conditioner like in a hotel, budget for a humidifier or your skin will be toast or bloodied from itching.

    Good luck.

Carpet Cleaning Recommendations Needed, Cat Urine Stain

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine. I'd rather get the carpet professionally cleaned than have to buy a new one. I don't care if the color...

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine. I'd rather get the carpet professionally cleaned than have to buy a new one. I don't care if the color changes, I just need a way to protect the wood floors and get the odor removed. I've already tried cleaning it by hand, but given the heavy staining on the reverse/bottom size, I'm concerned it'll eventually disintegrate and maybe stain the wood flooring.

Can someone please recommend an inexpensive place to get my small low pile carpet professionally cleaned in Edgewater? Can I take it to a regular dry cleaner or no? This is my first time having to do this.

Thanks!

(My cat is medically fine. He's recently been to the vet.)

    I recommend replacing the rug. Old stains never seem to come out entirely (and even if it doesn't smell to you, it may to the cat). Use Nature's Miracle on the floor underneath, even if you can't smell anything there. I'd not use a rug for awhile to break the cat of the habit of peeing in that spot. Make sure litter box is accessible and impeccably clean. If you decide to put a new rug down, clean any new stains with Nature's Miracle immediately. It's the only thing I've found that actually works on cat urine.

  • The urine will also be in the padding which you will need to replace. If you don't remove the padding the smell will remain even if you clean the carpet.
