Saw these tags, one appeared after another along with another tag closeby in my alley while taking out the trash a few weeks ago, they were quickly power washed /removed... the third pic is a tag that someone just did in the elevator inside my building. Today someone stuck a post-it to it that said "Scum go back to the getto." Kenmore between thorndale and ardmore. Anyone recognize these tags? There's been a few shootings at the end of the block in the past few months including one in march in which 2 people died. Also on more than one occasion I've walked outside and the street was PACKED with police vehicles and undercover officers literally running past me with guns out. What the hell! Curious if people know what's up with this activity.

    B please request graffiti removal. They actually are pretty responsive. We can't let them ruin our neighborhood. We are all living here in harmony for the most part and they can't take that from us.

FOUND CAT

We found a black and white female cat on Paulina and Thorndale. She has been scanned for a microchip (she does not have one). Very sweet and calm, hoping to return her home ASAP

Alexanders Restaurant on Clark

Talked with them - they are in the process of installing new sink etc. They expect to reopen next Thursday June 1. :-)

    JMG, I think you mean Rogue Fusion, just south of Geenleaf on Clark in Rogers Park. I've heard they have good brunches; I've only been there in the evening.

Unique Thai Fusion Restaurant From a Friend of Arun’s is Coming to Andersonville

...of the city’s fine-dining mainstays. Blu 57 should open in early June at 5701 N. Clark St. The food’s from chef Joe Sukjam who worked the kitchen at Taste of Thai...

    Unique Thai Fusion Restaurant From a Friend of Arun's is Coming to Andersonville
    Blu 57 promises Thai steak and seafood found nowhere else in Chicago
    https://chicago.eater.com

  • Fortunately Blu 57 won't be selling Trump Steaks which sold for as much as $250 a piece at Sharper Image and on the QVC shopping channel because the trademark went belly up in 2014. But why would anyone object to a unique steak and seafood house opening up in A'ville unless it was American or French? Is this some sort of anti-Thai thing going on? Anything connected with Joe Sukjam or Arun Sampanthavivat is top quality.

    Anyone remember Ko-Chi, the Japanese-French fusion steakhouse back in the early ‘80s that used to be a door or two north of what is now Hamburger Mary’s? It started out as BYOB. They had great steaks (they came with four sauces in dishes on the table) and even affordable escargot....

    Anyone remember Ko-Chi, the Japanese-French fusion steakhouse back in the early ‘80s that used to be a door or two north of what is now Hamburger Mary’s? It started out as BYOB. They had great steaks (they came with four sauces in dishes on the table) and even affordable escargot. (They served the critters on a platter that looked like the traditional ceramic escargot platter, but was made of bread dough that was baked and glazed with something non-porous and non-toxic but also inedible—the waiter, who was often the owner, would always admonish patrons not to eat the platter because it was “not eatable”). In its last year or so, they finally got a liquor license and a (very) small decent and affordable wine list featuring Guenoc wines from Mendocino (or Lake?) County in CA. If I seem to repeat the word “affordable” it’s because it WAS—even the steaks.
