  • Why can't I have hair like Littleton Artist/Uptown/Chicago

    I think the final breakdown of how much fest money goes to who varys widely it depends.

    Some fests are entirely DIY by a neighborhood organization, others.......like the obscenely lame Uptown Rib Fest is just a vendor/canned event that cuts a check to the local chamber.

  • They did the same thing for Taste of Randolph last year. It gets bigger every year, and I'm sure this year with the obnoxiousness of Soho Hotel and Parlor Pizza taking over, they'll block off yet more of the streets and basically make the neighborhood inaccessible for the weekend.

Please Be on the Lookout for this Dog/Human on Kenmore or Winthrop..5400-5700 Blocks

Hi About 3-4 weeks ago I was walking on either Kenmore or Winthrop (I zigzag when I walk so unsure which) about the 5500 Block when I saw a man with a tan pitbull..either older puppy or young adult. He was SCREAMING at the dog and berating her. I attempted to talk with him but he walked away. I saw him again today in the 5700 block of Kenmore. Today he had the pitbull and a larger black dog.

Hi About 3-4 weeks ago I was walking on either Kenmore or Winthrop (I zigzag when I walk so unsure which) about the 5500 Block when I saw a man with a tan pitbull..either older puppy or young adult. He was SCREAMING at the dog and berating her. I attempted to talk with him but he walked away. I saw him again today in the 5700 block of Kenmore. Today he had the pitbull and a larger black dog. The poor pitbull looked like skin and bones and her eyes were watering and she was drooling big time and looked like she had just vomited. The "owner" was talking to a woman who was doing yard work and said he was taking the dog to the Vet on Monday as she has been vomiting and losing weight. I tried to tell him about the Emergency Vets but he would have no part of listening. When he left (walking southbound) I asked her if she knew him and she said no--she has only seen him around a few months. She did not seem like she wanted to get involved. The human was hispanic, I think mexican, I would say in his 30's, average build, maybe 5'7? straight black hair just above his shoulders. Today he had on a black fleece type jacket.

Does this man/dog sound familiar to anyone? I live in the area..but not right there so do not walk around there much. If anyone sees him and this dog and knows where he lives PLEASE contact ANTI Cruelty (or message me the info and I can do it) This dog was so underweight it is either very very ill or not being cared for and he was so apathetic about the whole situation.

    No grocery chain of which I’ve heard “price-matches” or allows haggling the way big-box electronics or appliance stores do. It’s not that WF is “choosy about their clientele:” everyone’s money is the same shade of green. (You make it sound as if it’s some sort of velvet-rope dance club where not everyone gets in). To the contrary, it’s the clientele who get to be “choosy.” Don’t like the prices or the merchandise? Just as with any other grocery store, go elsewhere. Best strategy (albeit time-consuming) is to read ads or go online and comparison-shop for what you want and split your grocery dollars among several stores. My late f-i-l, who didn’t drive, did that in Queens, carrying a schlep-cart on the bus, well into his 80s. Sometimes WF will have the best price on something, sometimes Mariano’s, sometimes Cermak, etc. Prices will often depend on what the store can negotiate from any given purveyor on any given day, and vary in ways that may seem counterintuitive.

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    You can choose your friends & where your money goes. Me, I'm lazy. I go to the nearest place (neighborhood). For what I need.

Whole Foods BBQ

Anyone else go to the Whole Foods Edgewater BBQ today? Other than the insanely chilly & windy conditions (glad I had gloves, wish I’d worn a hat), it was pretty good. Very long lines for the actual BBQ items (coleslaw and either very tasty pulled pork or deep-fried faux-chicken--making it tough for kosher low-carbers), but I didn’t see them run out of food. Band “The Samplers” was a tight blues-rock power trio, but turned up a tad loud for some...

Anyone else go to the Whole Foods Edgewater BBQ today? Other than the insanely chilly & windy conditions (glad I had gloves, wish I’d worn a hat), it was pretty good. Very long lines for the actual BBQ items (coleslaw and either very tasty pulled pork or deep-fried faux-chicken--making it tough for kosher low-carbers), but I didn’t see them run out of food. Band “The Samplers” was a tight blues-rock power trio, but turned up a tad loud for some seniors. Ran out of tote bags early on, but I’ve amassed a bunch anyway. Individual booths ranged from True Nature (very good-natured, considering), Farmed Here herbs/greens, Creminelli salamis, Metropolis (hot coffee was HIGHLY appreciated!), Sauce Kitchen, organic breads/sweets/vegan ice “creams” & sorbets, popcorn, Just Mayo, to community organizations such as Friends of Senn, Jackalope Theater, Care for Real, etc. Disappointed that there was no sneak-peek indoor tour, but I guess that with only 11 days to go till opening they must be hustling like mad to get it all done. Glad I skipped breakfast earlier!

ISO of Uber/Lyft Feedback

Hi

I have never taken an Uber or a Lyft. I have been hearing a lot of not so good things about UBER and when I search online read eben more negatives..including being overcharged, not getting Uber credits, some scary drivers etc. I haven't read or heard too much about Lyft..wondering what your experiences have been. Should I even try them or just stick to cabs?

  • I love Uber. I have only had great experiences, much contrary to the experiences I have had with traditional cab companies where I have experienced drunken drives, speed demons, broken seats and seat belts, lack of air conditioning, heavy perfumes, and once a man who kept his face covered whenever we neared an intersection. Uber now and forever! And, I always tell the driver exactly what route I want them to use rather than relying on their faulty GPS.

  • Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably...

    Never had problems. Uber is dominate in Chicago and you will find more cars. However I try to use lyft if there are cars around. Like others have said, lyft drivers seem to be better but I will say that because of lyft more lax car policy it will probably be an older car. I don't want to get into a flame war about uber and writing my distaste for the company (not drivers) would be a very long post. I will say it simply. Uber (not the drivers) is evil. Try to use lyft if you can. Everyone praising uber will be sorry when they get a stronger monopoly (which by the looks will happen)
