    It's never too late to try something new, right? Well, that's the premise behind the gamut of adult education classes available around the city. And that's why we've rounded up a list of some of our favorite places to try new things around Chicago.

  • Try Big City Swing for fun on a "first Friday" each month. East/West Coast Swing are among my personal dances and the music is terrific. It's a fun evening and people are friendly. Go alone or take a friend. And, you'll see some terrific dancers who "jive" like they're from the 1940's-50's. I just grin and watch them (no jive anymore for me with cartilage worn out!)

Neighborhood Cat question

Yesterday I encountered the giant, friendly black tom named Ronan who lives on our block. His "outside cat" tag was missing and his (blue, glittery) collar was looking raggedy. I'd last seen him in September of 2015 and again in summer of 2016.

Any chance his humans are on everyblock/can verify that he's still owned and not abandoned?

He's very sweet and I'm worried about him.

  • I don't blame you Candice, there would come a point where I would just be like, "Okay, I'm officially done waiting for someone to claim you, welcome home little one!"

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    Hi Candice, If he isn't chipped and you can't keep him, pls post on here or email me directly. Thanks.

Good Audi mechanic?

Does anyone have a good Audi mechanic? We replaced our Saab Wagon with an Audi recently. We used to drive to Peterson Automotive in Skokie which is an exceptional Saab repair shop. They do not work on Audis. I am hoping to find an honest and knowledgeable Audi shop. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Any chance these places would also work for Subaru's? We have been going to the Evanston Subaru, but the prices are just too expensive.

Jerky jerk closed?

I just noticed jerky jerk was closed with a big green sign about losing their permit.

Is this a recent thing? I didnt see any health inspection reports pop up.

  • ScottK Near Glenwood/Devon in North Edgewater

    If conditions like that are observed anywhere, customers should report them to the health department, requesting an inspection be done.

    They are not always visible to the customer so we rely on outside agencies and yes former disgruntled employees etc

    Income Tax Does a Little Bit of Everything in Edgewater
