Does anyone know what the cafe on thorndale and Winthrop will turn into?

  • Word is that Apart Pizza is moving there from their tiny space on Broadway just south of Ridge. They have very good pizza and will be a positive addition to the block, I think.

  • I really hope that is true! I love Apart and they would be a great fit for that location. :)

Watch out for this car!

Silver Honda older model car V88 5005
With hand made brown cardboard circular sign PIZZA DELIVERY written in black marker in driver's side rear window.

May 13, 2017 10:30 PM The male passenger attempted to lure me into the vehicle by telling me they were my Uber driver. The driver got out pretending to look for an address to deliver his "pizza" in a box. His passenger was trying to unlock the back door saying, YES YES UBER!

I'm lucky he was too fat to get the door unlocked quickly from his front seat passenger post!

My real Uber driver arrived shortly thereafter. This happened in front of my home in the 1400 block of W Rosemont around 10:30 PM

May 20, 2017. Saw the same car with same driver and older female in front passenger seat prowling the neighborhood by the Peterson Rd Target store heading N on Damen around 9:30 PM

Not sure what their game is, but I'm convinced it's not Pizza Delivery.

Call 911 immediately if you see this vehicle and it seems suspicious.

Be careful. If you see this car

    I had a young woman try to run a friend and myself off the road while on LSD on my motorcycle. We pulled off on the exit for Michigan Ave for a breather and she nearly took me out trying to take pictures of our license plates she said to report us.

    It took two phone calls and 2 hours to 911 and a friend that knows police in that area until finally a White Shirt showed up and told us to just go and give a report at the Police Station. This after the young woman threatened us etc until she called her parents and told them what had happened while in their SUV - then she wanted us to all shake hands and leave. um no. near death experiences make you a bit more stubborn.

    Same situation as reported above - first person to the desk sgt gets to tell their side of the story - and we were first because I knew how this works. I was surprised the young woman even showed up. Desk Sgt took a L O N G While to actually look up. We filled out the paperwork and then the Desk Sgt did lecture the young woman (18 year old in parents car) about being a safe non distracted driver. So much for the distracted driving law after she admitted to being on her phone when she drifted into the lane and rubbed the saddle bags of the 1st bike and trying to take a picture when she cut me off and hit my bike.

    Insurance said the same thing - police reports in Chicago are not worth the paper they are written on - nothing happened except our insurance paid for the damage that she did to our bikes and we wait for the premiums to go up.

    I often wonder how old I'll have to be before I can live in a place where I have my own washer and dryer. Haven't found that nirvana yet. What a luxury to be able to keep up with laundry and do it whenever.

    @scott - the best part is a freshly laundered towel everyday for my shower! Just like in a hotel!

Horror story :

(I'm posting here, because I know many other people in Edgewater care about dogs/cats and try to reunite lost pets with their rightful owners.)

    Man Throws Dogs Off Roof After Falsely Claiming To Be Their Owner: Charges
    COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE - The suburban man who threw two poodles off a five-story building, killing one, had answered a Facebook ad looking for the lost dogs' owner after the two escaped from their Chicago home, prosecutors said Tuesday.
    https://www.dnainfo.com
  • Well. I have a fitting punishment for him.

  • He should get murder one for killing the poodle's father. Shame on him!!!!

  • Philip Independent Business owner ,47th. ward since 1968

    We need tougher laws and tougher judges to hand out some serious time to animal abusers . This behavior has to be stopped.
    I'm hoping some jailhouse justice at the very least will come this guys way .

    I recall several times in the past when while dining out, appetite-control kicked in immediately due to vermin making very public appearances in the dining room (once at the old Ing’s Chinese Buffet on Lincoln and again at What’s Cookin’?—the former had roaches on the wall by our table and the latter had one crawl out of the bread basket on the table; and at a highly-recommended Szechuan place on Howard near Rogers we were gratuitously entertained by “mouse ballet” on the dining room carpet). Eeeuw. Pity, though—Alexander’s had the best tuna salad in the city.

    As everyone knows if you fail to fund your pension one year you are losing decades of investment returns, not just that one year's contribution. This problem was created over decades, the good news is action can be taken now and it can be fixed.

    The unhealthy coziness between the CTU and politicians ended definitively years ago, The group that was elected to CTU leadership in 2010 is doing a much better job and it's benefitting the schools and the city.

Another live entertainment venue closing

pH Comedy Theater in Andersonville will close its doors at the end of May due to its lease expiring and the new rent spiking dramatically. (A function of rising property values in the neighborhood—several shops & restaurants have also fallen victim to this). The improv troupe itself, pH Productions, will still exist in its original pre-2012 itinerant form—look for its shows at venues and festivals around town (and consider booking it for your private events). It’s been a great run, but humor’s going back “on the road.” Watch FB for announcements of special final Andersonville performances.
