Local, Trustworthy Plumber

Well, the family has settled in but like all home purchases, we have found a few thigs that need to be fixed. Can anyone recommend a good, reliable plumber in the Edgewater Glen neighborhood for a couple of simple plumbing projects. They are not terribly difficult projects but things I don't want to tackle. Everyone I have contacted thus far has flaked out or wanted $150 per hour just to show up. A good handyman who is good at plumbing would be wonderful. Thanks for your help everyone.

  • Thanks -will put into my "resource guide" good yelp reviews

  • I've had very good luck with these guys. The owner lives in the area.

  • TiredofScumbagPoliticians Need A New Leader

    The 49th Ward is largely to blame for the continued cycles of chronic violence in the East Rogers Park neighborhood due to their failure to seek diligent enforcement of the statutes which legislators have enacted to remedy violent crime of this nature. Conversely, they seek to treat violent offenders as victims to be spoon fed at the expense of their victims. We need serious changes in the 49th Ward. Joe's "Olive Branch" mentality is a failure.

    Oh, and isn’t that block of Magnolia in 48?

  • 6400 is on the Northside of Devon - Rogers Park - the dividing line is the middle of Devon Avenue - you can tell the difference - the pretty upgraded side is the Southside - new condos, new stores, Uncommon Ground, Efficient UPS store, Dog supply store, Kids daycare - the other side has empty storefronts. ugly unkempt Citgo gas station, pawn shop - other than Devon Market there isn't anything worthwhile on the RP side.-

Recommendations for a good, affordable, Veterinarian in the area

Hello. I recently adopted a kitten who is about 8 months old. I took her to a local Vet and was told that I should have her baby tooth pulled so that MAYBE her top canine tooth would drop down. There is no guarantee that the surgery will allow her canine to drop down and my cat will have to have anesthesia for this.

I want to get another opinion before I take my kitten for surgery.

Does anyone have a Vet in the Edgewater area?

Thank you.

    We go to Banfield. They have a wellness plan where you pay $25 a month per cat and you can bring your cat in any time and as many times as you want (without paying per visit) and several of the other medical costs are covered such as shots, blood work up twice a year, and tooth cleaning. It saves us so much money and I feel like I can bring my cat in for minor concerns instead of waiting to see if it gets better because I don't want to have to spend at least $150 per visit (before medicines, tests, and procedures) like at other vets. They are always really thorough and have helped my cats with problems that other vets just dismissed.

  • Tracey in RP eyes like a shutter, mind like a lens

    I have been going to Uptown Animal Hospital for close to 16 years and absolutely love them. They were wonderful during a truly horrible time with my one cat, they saved my other cat's life and have been fantastic with him and my little monster I adopted a few years ago. I originally started seeing Dr. Dickes but in the last few years have been seeing Dr. Tyler. Both are awesome. Good luck!

Young man checking for unlocked cars down the 6300 block of Wayne

Hey all,

I just wanted to give a head's up that I saw a young guy checking car doors on the 6300 block of Wayne walking south towards Granville. I saw him from my 3rd floor going to each car one-by-one and, while my view was partially obstructed, it looked like he managed to open the back door of a car and take a bag out of it. This was all in broad day light at approx 3:30pm

When I went downstairs to confront him, he was already down the block and I could see he met two more young men at the end of the block. They walked out of site at that point.

Please keep an eye out for strange behavior like this. He was wearing a gray hoodie with the hood over his head so I didn't get a clear look at his face but he was African American along with his two friends.

Feel free to open up and see that there's nothing there. I wouldn't do it but consider the old heaps in the city that have inoperable or broken door locks/handles too. I was just in a persons car the other day and he was kinda p.o.'d that I locked the door because now he's gotta climb through the passenger side to get in until it decides to work again.

Any suggestions for public transportation from Edgewater to Deerfield?

Hello. I have to go from either Edgewater or Evanston to Deerfield once a week. I have no car so i can take whatever modes of public transportation to get to and from there. I have tried the Metra to bus leaving from Evanston, Davis St. I have tried bus to Metra in Edgebrook Metra station.

Any ideas of buses, pace, cta, metra that will not be too crazy or a 2 1/2 hour trip would be appreciated. I have to go during the day, usually to get there by 2pm.

Thank you

Aquanaut Brewery, Budlong Chicken To Team On Devon Avenue Brewpub

The owners of Aquanaut Brewery and Budlong Chicken have announced plans for a joint venture at Devon and Magnolia avenues, aiming to open by year's end.

The future of the site has been uncertain ever since husband-and-wife team Alex Drayer and Brittany Groot's idea for D & G Brewing at the 1221 W. Devon Ave. spot fell through late last year.

The Edgewater taproom won't replace Aquanaut's existing brewery, 5435 N. Wolcott Ave., but will add capacity and increase Aquanaut's visibility, Tadros said.

    60660 -I have been concerned with Uptown for some time - but recently Alderman Cappleman and Alderman Osterman have taken proactive action involving streetscape (Argyle) - Caps meetings, Roll Call, neighborhood block club meeting, Court room advocacy, building inspections and closures, and arrests. I believe those residents will tell us the gang activity has been reduced so as long as their in proactive leadership I don't comment other than to support that activity - I hope I am right - at the moment there isn't that much retail amenity to go to so it is less visible to our day to day lives - except for Argyle which has had a major streetscape to encourage pedestrian presence. Bottom line - those Alderman are doing their job.

    It would be nice if Uptown cleans up and I hope they continue-they got some great places like the Supertarget, Green Mill Lounge, Tweet,Asian restaurants galore,etc. I think the renovation of the Wilson line will be a game changer.

  • I had to say it: instead of just giving a nothing answer that was only half helpful, why not explain where that building exactly is? Why'd ya even bother at all?

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

Video of Alderman Moore on CAN TV

Listen to the dialogue beginning at about 15:45 on his ineffective views on crime. If you want to know why we have increasing patterns of chronic violence in East Rogers Park watch this video as Moore assesses blame upon everything but our failure to prosecute violent criminals to establish deterrents

  • Thanks for sharing the video. I thought Joe did a very nice job. I liked his emphasis on community policing and education. He comes across as a likeable, plain-speaking, thoughtful guy. While watching the video, it was strange to remember that some folks on Everyblock consider him the spawn of Satan!

  • Considering the madness in RPk for decades..crime is down. There will never be no crime or shootings, that is how we unfortunately live. The Alderman along the lake have worked hard to control community crime but it will never be Nirvana

    Nice of the Alderman to admit that the community policing we have now is just lip service. Which leads into, the elimination of TAC units. How can something so obvious avoid discussion? Thank you for not supporting privatized security at ORD. Look no further than the private taxi line to see what private gets us. Midway has always been a mess with security and the flow of people, for at least a decade there have been backlogs of lines into the parking garage leading to the CTA. 90% of AirBNB problems can be resolved by requiring a 2 or even 3 night minimum. Go for 4 days, be bold! These features are already available to be turned on individually, by the host, so it could be implemented literally overnight with no cost to anyone. A hosts problem can become there's so much competition to get a booking that people go nuts on applying logic, it's easier to take more money for a 1 night and be risky than sensible. If everyone is operating under the same minimums though, everyone is happier. Hotels should be happier, too, because many business travelers only come for a night or two anyway, so the hotels keep their bread and butter. But, don't forget also that AirBNB IS the local economy--(well, you could argue Hyatt because Chicago's a special snowflake), but Hilton stays are not doing much for the local economy vs AirBNB. Also, don't forget there are people who have units listed on AirBNB who maybe can't sell their Rogers Park condo at a profit so may otherwise foreclose/short sale, and are avoiding doing so.
